**CORONAVIRUS UPDATE** 

THE PALL MALL SURGERY ARE NOW ADMINISTERING THE COVID VACCINE TO OUR PATIENTS.  PLEASE WAIT FOR US TO CONTACT YOU REGARDING AN APPOINTMENT. 

THE VACCINES WILL BE GIVEN BY OUR STAFF AT :

THE HIGHLANDS BRANCH SURGERY, (NEXT TO THE TSB, ON THE CORNER OF CRESCENT ROAD, OPPOSITE THE BATHWORLD)

The public can really help the NHS to deliver our vaccination programmes effectively to those who need it most. Taking these simple steps will help us to help you.

  • The NHS will contact you when it’s the right time to come forward, so please don’t contact us to seek a vaccine before then.

  • Please act on your invitation when it arrives, and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them.

  • In the meantime, please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.

 

The latest information on the COVID-19 vaccination programme is online on the NHS website. Local updates can also be found here.  

 

We advise checking there first if you have questions about the safety or effectiveness of COVID vaccines, or your priority to receive vaccination.

 

General public resources for the public COVID vaccination campaign are also available on the Campaign Resource Centre.

We would like to reassure you that we are very much open, and some parts of the practice are operating as normal, such as cervical smear tests, child immunisations, and referrals. 

To protect our patients and our staff  the doors are closed to all patients who do not have a booked face to face appointment.  If you do wish to discuss any concerns with the practice please kindly contact us by telephone.

To make an appointment you will need to contact the surgery by phone ONLY.  We are not able to take appointment requests face to face.  To manage the current situation and to care for our patients and staff the Pall Mall Surgery shall be managing appointments, firstly by using telephone triage.  If the clinician feels you need to be seen an appointment will be made for you to attend the surgery. 

We have worked hard to put measures into place to ensure that any visits to the surgery are kept as safe as possible. 

As of 15th June NHS Guidelines state that any patient attending the Pall Mall Surgery will need to wear a face mask / face covering.  Children under the age of 5 are exempt.  Any persons not wearing a mask will not be permitted to enter, unless they are covered by the guidelines for those who are exempt.

If you are suffering from any respiratory symptoms such as cough, temperature, and / or sore throat and you are asked to attend the surgery you will be given an appointment in a designated area.  Please wait in your car until we call you on your mobile at the time of your appointment. 

The Partners and staff at the Pall Mall Surgery thank you for your patience at this difficult time.
