Please be assured, patients will be contacted immediately when it's their turn to be vaccinated. The order in which we are offering the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.
Patients are encouraged to make sure the practice holds the correct contact details, including telephone number and email address, as there may be circumstances whereby there is a short turn-around time to invite patients for a vaccine.
Further information is available here.
The NHS is currently under increased pressure due to the continued impact of Covid-19. This means that you may experience delays in the services provided at your GP practice. Please accept our sincere apologies and continue to check our website or follow us on Twitter for further updates.
Thank you for your co-operation and patience.
In response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) all patients with a non-medical emergency when the GP practice is open are asked to use our online services via Patient Access wherever possible.
All patients will be offered a telephone consultation or video consultation, where appropriate, and a face-to-face appointment, as necessary. Patients can continue to contact the practice via telephone between 8am and 6.30pm, Monday to Friday.
Out-of-hours, if you require urgent but not life-threatening medical assistance that cannot wait until Guide Bridge Medical Practice re-opens, please call 111. If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, please dial 999.
Our aim is to provide our patients with the best possible healthcare services that are of the highest standard. As a patient, you will receive care that is responsive to your needs, and we will work with supporting organisations, where necessary, to achieve this. We pride ourselves on putting our patients first and in doing so, we will always take the time to listen and respond openly and honestly every time.
