Covid Vaccinations – Latest News

Covid Vaccination Update 10.6.2021

Elm Hayes Surgery & the other practices in the 3 Valleys Healthcare Network have now finished the vaccination programme for Cohorts – 1 – 10 at The Somer Centre in Midsomer Norton.

If you are now eligibile for your first dose vaccination or require your 2nd dose please contact the National Booking Service – not your GP Practice.

 

All local sites are now available  through the National Booking Service online at nhs.uk or by calling 119. 

Please don’t hesitate to book your appointment as soon as you are invited.  The NHS appreciates that at times the system can be busy and be assured we will make sure everyone is offered the opportunity to be immunised so please keep trying.

New clinics at various locations are being set up all the time including some community pharmacies so your patience is appreciated.

Business As Usual – We are still open for urgent health concerns so please do contact us if you need us for anything- covid or not.  Our phone lines remain extremely busy and we request that if your problem is not urgent you try to wait until the afternoons to call which will keep our phone lines free for those who have urgent medical problems.  If you have a query the best way to get through to us is via our email address bswccg.elmhayes@nhs.net.   At the moment we are continuing to operate a Dr First policy whereby a Dr or Nurse will call you regarding your problem and assess whether you need to be seen face to face but we are monitoring and reviewing this system over the forthcoming weeks.

We are currently unable to increase amount of face to face appointments without triage due to the impact on our waiting room and social distancing.
