If you have a face to face appointment with a Doctor or Nurse, please wear a face covering when you attend the appointment. Thank you

If you request a Doctors appointment, we have asked our receptionists to ask about the reason for your call so they can book you an appointment with the most appropriate Health Professional and you will be offered either a telephone or face to face appointment. Do not attend the surgery unless you have an appointment arranged. 

You can continue to collect medication (please do not order too early) from the surgery but we are relying on our patients to self-isolate and not attend the surgery if they have any cough/breathing/respiratory symptoms, fever or flu/cold like symptoms. If you have any of these symptoms please ask someone else to attend the surgery if you have any medication to collect.

ONLINE MEDICATION ORDERING  If you wish to write a message to dispensary when you order medication, please write it in the box on the second page, beneath the list of medication you have ordered, not the first page (as this deletes the list of medication you want). Thank you

Medication reviews. In future on your repeat prescription list, if there is a message in bold print, please take note of it as it will be a message for you personally.

On this page you will find information about Covid vaccinations nationally and locally, current vaccination clinic details and useful contact numbers and links.

AUTUMN/WINTER BOOSTERS at BRADWORTHY SURGERY

The autumn Covid boosters are being offered to everyone aged 50 and above, and those in the qualifying groups, along with a flu jab this year. They will be given at your registered surgery.

  • Flu and Covid booster vaccinations will be given at Bradworthy surgery, for those aged 50 and above, and those aged 18 and above in the 'at risk' groups. Other providers, in schools or out in the community, will be providing vaccinations for young people under 18 years. We will post any information we have about this on these pages, once available.
  • The vaccines will be given at the same time – one in each arm – so multiple visits to the surgeries are not required.
  • Patients in the qualifying groups can book into the clinics (see dates below) by either calling us, or using SystmOne online or NHSApp. Those without mobiles or text will be contacted by phone or letter.
  • People with mobile numbers on record may be sent a text reminder to book in.
  • We are unable to specify which Covid vaccine you will be given. This will depend on supply.
