Corona Virus – Covid -19 Practice Update

ADVICE AFTER 19th JULY 2021

Please do not attend the practice unless requested to do so. Our doors have always been open but as a surgery with a small waiting and reception area it is important we keep these areas available for patients with booked appointments. WHEN YOU DO ATTEND PLEASE CONTINUE TO WEAR A FACE COVERING INSIDE THE BUILDING. It is important in clinical settings that we protect our most vulnerable patients by asking patients to wear a face covering. Our team will continue to wear masks to protect you. OUR STAFF WILL REQUEST YOU TO WEAR A MASK WHEN IN THE BUILDING.

YOU CAN READ THE NATIONAL GUIDANCE HERE.

COVID and FLU VACCINATION PROGRAMME

We have paused our Covid vaccination programme to enable us to prepare for the forthcoming flu and covid booster campaign starting week commencing 13th September 2021. We will again prioritise patients for Covid vaccination boosters according to JCVI guidance. You will be able to book your flu vaccination separately (this will not be subject to any order of priority). Where possible we will support patients in being vaccinated at one single appointment for both flu and Covid boosters.

Patients who have not yet received a second dose or who need a first dose vaccination

Please use the National Booking Service to request an appointment at Greendale, Exeter or look out for ‘pop up’ events in the local area over the next few weeks.
