Target Lung Health Checks

Please find below a link which explains more about  the Target Lung Health Checks.

This is not something we are involved in as a GP Surgery, this is an NHS England Scheme.

Autumn Covid Vaccinations 2022

Dear Patients,

Unfortunately, we will not be providing any COVID-19 vaccination clinics for the Autumn Booster programme.   You can book your COVID-19 vaccination via 119 or the NHS website which will signpost you to a walk-in coronavirus vaccination site ie Bath Racecourse.

Our practice is not providing COVID-19 vaccinations to Housebound registered patients during the autumn 2022.  A local BaNES GP federation called BEMS will be carrying out your vaccination. They will be in contact with you via telephone to advise you when a vaccinator will be coming to visit you. Unfortunately, the surgery cannot book appointments on your behalf.

 

To confirm your eligibility, please visit: Book or manage a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination – NHS (www.nhs.uk)

To find a walk in clinic, please visit: Find a walk-in coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination site – NHS (www.nhs.uk)

Many thanks,

Heart of Bath Medical Partnership
