Covid-19 Vaccines

The NHS is prioritising vaccinating people who experts have agreed will benefit the most. We will let you know when it is your turn. Please see here for advice.

There is comprehensive information, guidance, and answers to questions, including vaccination information for frontline health and social care staff, carers and clinical vulnerable (moderate risk)at COVID-19 Vaccination programme | East London Health & Care Partnership (eastlondonhcp.nhs.uk)

Getting the help you need

The NHS in London is very busy as coronavirus infection rates continue to be high, but we’ll help you get urgent care when you need it.

Most consultations are over the phone and via video. This is for everyone's safety.

We will assess your situation and invite you into the practice if needed. We can arrange same-day appointments if you need urgent care but please don't visit without an appointment. Appointments will be held in the best way to keep you safe from Covid.

You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice - including if you have concerns about your Covid-19 symptoms.

Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies.

Please help reduce infections, protect the NHS and keep each other safe by following the latest rules.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information

Please do not come to the surgery unless invited by us - please call us or message online instead - regardless of wether you have symptoms or not.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situationwe have chaged how we deliver appointments. We are now no longer offering face to face appointments unless a patient has been traged first by a clinician either by phone or online (eConsult). The majority of issues can be dealt with by phone but if you need to be seen our clinicians will organise this. We have also had to stop some routine services at this difficult time.

News

  • Ramadan and the Covid-19 vaccine

    Ramadan is due to start on the evening of Monday 12 April 2021 and we urge our Muslim patients not to delay having their Covid-19 vaccine – first or second dose – during the holy month.

    The British Islamic Medical Association has reviewed the analysis of Islamic scholars and confirmed that having the vaccine does not invalidate the fast. The vaccine does not contain pork or other animal, foetal or alcohol products - this reflects the advice of the majority of Islamic scholars that it is permissible.? If you are still unsure whether you should have a vaccine during Ramadan, please speak to your local Imam for guidance.

    If you are taking prescribed medicines, you should continue taking them during Ramadan, but check with your GP if the doses need to be adjusted or the times that you take them need to be changed.

    If you have diabetes and want to fast, please speak to your GP or diabetes nurse about the safest way to do this. Remember that there is an exemption for people with diabetes, especially if you’re on insulin or have any medical complications.

  • Face Masks

    In England, you must by law wear a face covering on public transport and in shops and supermarkets as of 24th July 2020.

    The Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption direct with the person questioning the (e.g. bus driver).

  • Registering now!

    It’s always important to be registered with a GP but even more so now during the Covid 19 pandemic.

    In view of this we are taking on new patients

    If you are looking to register with a GP please select “How to register” from the main menu.
