Spring Covid Booster

While we are learning to live with COVID, the virus still presents a serious threat for many people and is continuing to cause severe illness and hospitalisation for thousands of people every week.

The Covid vaccines have saved countless lives and help prevent people becoming seriously ill or needing hospital care. Protection from the vaccines or having COVID decreases over time, particularly in older people or those with weakened immune systems, so those at greatest risk from the virus will be offered a further vaccination this spring. 

Eligible people will be be invited to book an appointment or you can use the National Booking Site. Appointments will be available from 17th April 2023 and will run until the end of June.

Training Practice

The practice is an approved training practice for GP Registrars, Foundation Doctors and Medical Students.  All students have a comprehensive education programme and are supervised in their clinical work.  

Dr Kate Hemingway and Dr Trudi Cherry are approved GP Trainers and lead education in the practice.  Additional members of the clinical and non-clinical team participate in teaching and training throughout the year.

Student Nursing placements take place at the practice throughout the year, with training provided by our Nurse Mentors.

The practice also hosts First Contact Physio trainees, who are qualified physiotherapists and are able to provide a service to our patients.

We would like to thank all of our patients who see those colleagues, who are training and gaining experience within the practice.  It is vital for their development and is helping to build the future NHS workforce.

IMPORTANT - To all our Military Veteran Patients and their Families: 21.03.2022

As a practice we are actively seeking to identify our Military Veteran patients who have served in the UK Armed Forces and any family members of Military Veterans to ensure they receive any support they may need.

This includes all Military Veterans and Reservists. You only have to have served one day in the Armed Forces.

We are sending out Questionnaires via text message for Military Veterans or their immediate family members, so watch out for these. They are very simple to complete.

Our local group of practices will be working together in the future to help offer tailored support as well as signposting to other services for our Military Veterans and their Families.

Thank you for your cooperation with this piece of work.
