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. The risk of mortality from Covid-19 increases with age, therefore, prioritisation is given to those patients aged 80 years of age and over, and care home residents and staff. We will soon be moving to vaccinate the over-75s and housebound patients.
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.

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.

If you require a repeat prescription and to comply with social distancing, please use the NHS App, patient access or email the practice. Online services can provide patients with real time updates on their prescription requests. Please do not contact us to check if your prescription is ready. Please ensure you have nominated a pharmacy so your prescription can be sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. Pharmacies can also text patients when their prescription is ready to collect to avoid queues outside.
For those patients who are not self-isolating, you can also post your prescription in the foyer outside of the waiting room. You cannot request acute medications via online services – please email the practice for these.
If you know you need to self isolate due to the current Covid-19 outbreak and your employer has requested a note, please follow this link and NHS 111 will provide the necessary certification. If the service is busy please keep trying.
If you have received a 12-week shielding letter, this is your sick note for your employer. Please note, if you live with someone who is high risk, you do not require a sick note, you do however need to socially distance. If you need a sick note for other reasons than Covid-19, please fill out a request by clicking on 'Medical advice'.
Out-of-hours, if you require urgent but not life-threatening medical assistance that cannot wait until Hattersley Group Practice re-opens, please call NHS 111. If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, please dial 999.
