Update around Covid-19 Vaccination Programme

We contact patients directly as and when they are due to be vaccinated so please don’t phone us to ask when we will be calling you.  We are working our way through the individual cohorts as and when we have delivery confirmations of the vaccines so please do not worry that you will be missed - we regularly update our Facebook page too so please consider joining that page so you can keep updated (but we do update this page too!)

If you are interested in volunteering for the Covid-19 National Vaccination Programme, please do not phone the Surgery as it is not coordinated by us. Please email your interest to ruh-tr.vaccinationrecruitment@nhs.net

As you find yourself recovering from COVID-19 you may still be coming to terms with the impact the virus has had on both your body and mind.  These changes should get better over time, some may take longer than others, but there are things you can do to help.  Your COVID Recovery helps you to understand what has happened and what you might expect as part of your recovery.  Your Covid Recovery

We have managed to secure additional Flu Vaccines for the AGED 50 - 64 COHORT ONLY! If you fall within this age range, please phone us for an appointment (please don't all phone at once and crash our phone lines 😉 ) We have plenty so don't panic!

For those patients booked into our 50 - 64 year old Flu Clinic, please read the attached before your appointment.  It is the Patient Information Leaflet on the vaccination you will be receiving.

Dementia Screening

As a Practice, we would encourage any patient who is concerned about their memory to consult their Doctor in the usual way for assessment.

The Doctors will automatically test patients who are at risk of memory decline as part of good medical care.  As a Practice, we do not intend to call patients in specifically for a memory assessment alone.

If you have concerns about your (or a relative's) memory, please do not hesitate to discuss it with your Doctor at a routine appointment.

Transport to the Surgery - please remember we utilise the Ramsbury Community Bus (suspended currently through Covid) on a Tuesday and Thursday morning for transporting our patients to and from the Surgery (from designated pickup points).  This new minibus has a disabled access ramp and provides a service for any patient without transport.  Please ask our Receptionists for further information if you feel this service would be beneficial to your or your family.
