COVID-19 Vaccine Supply

Despite recent media coverage outlining a national supply issue, everyone in Cheshire West who has already had their first dose COVID vaccine will be offered their second dose within 12 weeks. Available vaccine supply is being prioritised for this purpose.

Most vaccination services in Cheshire West started vaccinating patients in early January and it has been determined nationally that second doses should be offered as close to week eleven as possible, following first dose.

Clinics are carefully planned around confirmed vaccination delivery dates in order to minimise disruption to patients. When confirmation of the delivery date for second dose vaccines has been received your GP practice will contact you to arrange your second dose appointment.

Home Visits

Home VisitsHome visits are ONLY for patients who are infirm and the seriously ill. We would respectfully ask that before requesting a home visit, please consider bringing the patient to see the doctor in surgery wherever possible as patients are often seen quicker.

The decision to offer a home visit is made by the doctor, and NOT the receptionist. Therefore, the doctor may return your call and ask you to attend the surgery instead.

If you do need a home visit, please ring before 10:00am wherever possible.


Telephone Consultations

The Doctors and Practice Nurses also operate a telephone consultation system. If you think that your condition is something that you can talk to the Doctor OR Nurse about over the phone, rather than face to face, please ask the Receptionist to book you in for a telephone consultation. She will make a note of your telephone number and the Doctor OR Nurse will return your call at the end of surgery.

Our Nurses DO have booked appointments and you can also ask for a Telephone Consultation with them.  You can book an appointment up to one month ahead with any of the Practice Nurses.
