PLEASE BE AWARE THAT BETWEEN THE FIRST COVID VACCINATION AND THE SECOND, THERE SHOULD BE AT LEAST A 21 DAY INTERVAL.
PLEASE DO NOT COME TO SURGERY UNLESS YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT
Please be advised that we cannot take calls about COVID vaccines and vaccination sites, please do not call us regarding this, as this is blocking up our phone lines please
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT DUE TO THE COVID VACCINATION PROGRAMME AT THE PRACTICE, THERE WILL BE MORE PATIENTS AT THE PRACTICE THAN THERE HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY
WE ARE NOW IN A POSITION TO OFFER YOU AN APPOINTMENT FOR YOUR FLU VACCINATION. PLEASE CONTACT THE SURGERY TO ARRANGE A CONVENIENT TIME. ALL CLINICS WILL BE STRUCTURED VIA APPOINTMENT TIME TO ENSURE SOCIAL DISTANCING. WE WOULD ALSO ASK THAT YOU WEAR A MASK WHEN YOU ATTEND.
IN LINE WITH GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES WE WILL BE DELIVERING VACCINATIONS TO OUR PATIENTS WITH LONG TERM CONDITIONS, THOSE WHO ARE PREGNANT AND THOSE WHO ARE AGED 65+ INITIALLY.
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.

BHF Goldthorpe would like to invite you to join DoctorLink. Further update added 14.01.2021
We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments on line.
Registration is simple and you can register here:
Further update added 14.01.2021 - We are delighted to say Doctorlink can now offer patients the Admin Task functionality, which provides them with the opportunity to request Test results, Referral follow ups, a letter, report, sick note, or something else, all through the Doctorlink App.
For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.
The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.
The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self care.
If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required, you simply click on the request appointment link.
Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
You can even download the App:
