Welcome to Baldwins Lane Surgery
At Baldwins Lane Surgery we try to maintain a very personal, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
PATIENT NOTICES - MAY 2021
You may have seen on the news that from Monday 17 May, doors at GP practices are ‘re-opening’.
As you will know, our GP practice has been open throughout the pandemic, offering patients telephone and online appointments, with face-to-face consultations available for those who need them.
This was in-line with national requirements to keep patients safe, whilst COVID infection rates were high and before the vaccination was widespread.
GP practices are now being encouraged to offer patients a choice of whether they would like a remote or face to face consultation.
However, before we have more people coming into the surgery to see us in person, we need a bit of time to put in place measures to keep everyone safe.
As we wait for further national guidance on doing that.
We ask that patients continue to contact us by phone or online as you have been doing.
We are facing unprecedented demands for our services and will need to continue to adjust how we use our clinicians’ time to best support our patients – particularly those who need us the most.
We will keep you updated as soon as we are clear about how we can re-open our reception areas safely.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
COVID 19 VACCINE
his GP practice is not offering 1st
dose COVID vaccines for healthy under 50s. Book a 1st dose once you’re eligible at: www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination
or call 119. New slots are added frequently so check back if you can’t initially see a convenient time/place.
If we are due to give your 2nd dose, we will be in touch in the 8th week. Please do not contact the surgery about the covid-19 vaccine.
If you have a mobile number registered with the surgery you may receive a text message inviting you to book your vaccination slot yourself. If you do not have a mobile do not worry you will still be invited manually over the phone. If you have your mobile registered for your parents please take care to book for the correct person.
