Covering your face when you’re in the GP practice
Even though the restrictions on wearing a facemask lifted on Monday 19 July, the guidance from Public Health England confirms that people must still wear a face mask in healthcare settings like your GP practice and hospitals. This is to stop the spread of Covid-19 and keep yourself and our staff safe when they’re at work.
What does this mean for me?
When you book an appointment with your GP you will have a telephone or online appointment where possible but if you need to be seen in person, a receptionist will book you into the practice.
When you arrive at your GP practice, yourself and anyone accompanying you must wear a face covering such as a face mask. You can find out how to make a cloth face covering on the Gov.uk website.
Staff in the practice will be wearing personal protective equipment.
Doors and windows will be kept open to let any Covid particles out into the air.
Your practice will take the necessary steps to make sure that the premises is Covid-19 secure and safe for you to visit.
Remember to wash your hands regularly and use the hand sanitiser provided, keep your distance from people, and avoid touching your face.

Accessing A+E/ NHS 111
We are still open and here for you and appointments are being delivered by telephone and face-to-face. We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. If you need medical advice or treatment, please call us or, for non-urgent advice or treatment, visit our website and send us your query.
If you need urgent medical help but it’s not life-threatening, then make sure you use NHS 111 instead of going straight to A&E.
You can contact NHS 111 by either calling 111 or visiting the website: https://111.nhs.uk/
If you need to go to A&E, NHS 111 will book an arrival time. This will mean you spend less time in A&E. This also helps with social distancing.
NHS 111 is also able to direct to or book appointments at Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.
Remember if you or someone you know has a life-threatening illness or injury then you should still call 999 immediately.
NHS APP + Covid Passport
The NHS App is a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet or laptop. You can download the free app from the Apple or Android app stores and follow the simple on-screen instructions to set it up. You will not need to visit the practice to set up your app.
You can use the app to book and manage GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions, check your symptoms and register to be an organ donor. From 17 May 2021 you will also be able to access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the app. It is recommended that you register with the app before booking international travel.
Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. We cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
If you are unable to access the NHS app but would like confirmation of your vaccination status you can call the NHS helpline on 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine, the letter may to take up to 5 days to reach you.
Covid Vaccination second doses
When you are called for your second dose of the vaccine, please do make sure that you have it. It’s really important you get your 2nd vaccination to make sure you are fully protected from coronavirus. Please call the practice now if you think your second dose is due. We will be happy to talk through any questions you may have about your vaccination.
Over the last five months we have vaccinated thousands of Manchester patients and are so grateful to everyone involved in the programme. The vaccine programme is now focussing on cohorts 10 -12 (ages 18 – 49). We have taken the decision to opt out of offering vaccination services for these cohorts to enable us to focus on our day-to-day GP services.
Patients registered at the practice between the age 18-49 will be invited for their vaccine via a text or letter from the National Booking Service and will be able to book an appointment online via nhs.uk/covidvaccination or by calling 119.
We will continue to provide second doses to our patients who received their first dose through the practice. When you are called for your second dose of the vaccine, please do make sure that you have it.
