COVID-19 Vaccination Update - 6th April 2021
We are all delighted by how well the Covid vaccination programme is going and we look forward to improving the quality of life for all of us as the Roadmap Out of Lockdown begins.
If you are 50 or over please do book an appointment for the 1st dose of your vaccine as soon as you can:
There will be fewer first vaccines delivered in April, although second vaccines will be given.
Plans to vaccinate patients under 50 have not yet started.
We expect vaccine deliveries to increase again in May.
We will be taking this opportunity in April to start looking at:
- how we can get back to a normal routine of consulting with patients
- which screening areas we need to prioritise
- how we can do this in a Covid safe way
Thank you for your patience as we all work through these changes and do look after yourselves by attending all your appointments including those for immunisations and screening.

COVID-19 Vaccination Passport
Your GP is currently not able to provide you with a COVID Vaccination Certificate or a Vaccination Passport. These documents have not yet been developed - so please do not contact the surgery to enquire. As soon as we have further information we will share it with you.
However if you have a smartphone or tablet you can find details of all your vaccinations including COVID by registering on the NHS App using the link below. You will also have access to your medical history and be able to manage your prescriptions online.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – IMPORTANT MESSAGE
Do not attend the surgery unless you have an appointment or have been asked to do so by a GP.
If you are asked to attend an appointment at the surgery, please wear a face mask or covering, a visor on its own is not enough. Please DO NOT attend your appointment if you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms OR are awaiting Covid-19 test results.
For information on the coronavirus outbreak please go to the NHS.UK page on coronavirus or the information on GOV.UK.
The Surgeries will be closed for an NHS Dorset Protected Learning Session on Tuesday 11th May 2021. The surgeries will be closed from 3.30pm and reopen on Wednesday 12th May 2021 from 8.30am. If you have a concern of an urgent medical nature during this time, please contact the NHS 111 Service (dial 111).
Appointments during Pandemic
Although our surgery doors are locked, we would like to assure you appointments are being delivered face to face, online and over the telephone and you will be advised on the best approach for you. If you are asked to come into surgery for a face to face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering. Visors are not acceptable on their own. Measures are in place to keep you and our staff safe from infection during your visit to the surgery. Please do not come to the surgery unless you have an appointment. We would be grateful for you to use our online services where possible.
Our phone lines are very busy at the moment. This is due to us working differently to protect us all from the spread of Coronavirus. Please consider using eConsult (which can be found on our Home Page) or the messaging service via SystmOnline or the NHS App.
How we are working differently
Patient Information Letter
Please be aware we do not organise COVID Tests and have no access to booking them. For COVID Testing please call 119 or refer to the GOV.UK website.
We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients, in particular at evenings and weekends. If you would like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask. These appointments may be at a different site; for example, Poole General Hospital.
