Welcome to The Village Surgery
Please see FURTHER INFORMATION for the latest information on Coronavirus testing.
This is a generic communication that has been issued for the general population
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Named Accountable GP
Under new contractual requirements we are required to inform you of your Named Accountable GP. Unless you have previously been notified otherwise you will find your Named Accountable GP printed on the right hand side of your prescription, or you can ask at reception. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOU CAN STILL SEE ANY DOCTOR OF YOUR CHOICE
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Police forces have become aware of a fraud circulating targeting elderly and vulnerable members of the community.
Some people have received telephone calls from a caller who purports to be from a GP surgery and asks for an appointment to discuss the persons health or mobility needs. During the appointment, the older person is persuaded to buy mobility aids which are either unnecessary or inappropriate and always expensive.
If you receive a call like this, please check with your GP surgery first before agreeing to a visit.
Stay well this winter

Student protection for meningococcal disease
Public Health England is calling for students to get the MenACWY vaccine as cases of meningococcal disease - that can lead to meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning) - are anticipated to spike in the winter months. They are urging students to take up the vaccine during their university break before they return to university and halls of residence, where they are often in close contact with many other students.
Please click on the link below for more information on the MenACWY vaccine.
The surgery will be closed on Christmas day, Boxing Day and New Years Day. Should you need urgent medical attention during this time please call 111
