    Covid 19 Booster Vaccinations

    A third booster vaccination of Pfizer Covid vaccine against Covid 19 is now available. Due to the requirement to wait for 15 minutes in the surgery after vaccination, we are very limited in the numbers we can do on site here. We are currently recalling those aged over 90 and over 80 who are at least 180 days after their second dose. We will be doing a limited number following on from the flu clinic on Saturday 23rd. You may have received a letter inviting you to book through NHS119. Our advice is that you should take this option in the first instance even if it means travelling further than ideal. We are reserving our limited resource for those most at risk and least able to travel. Your understanding is appreciated. Thank you.

    Ordering Regular Medication

    We are getting a very high number of requests for medication by phone. Please note that this service is intended for those housebound without access to the internet ONLY. Other options for ordering regular medication include via the NHS App, via email to northbeverley.medicalcentre@nhs.net (please include your name and DOB), via post or via the post box outside the surgery. Calling in requests diverts vital resource from other tasks and causes phone line congestion. Please help us by not calling with any non-urgent request on Monday or early in the morning. Demand is extremely high currently. Your understanding is appreciated.
