Keep up to date with the latest news, events and announcements from your local Practice.
We are sad to announce that Dr Pooja Mishra will no longer be re-joining the practice after a lengthy absence. Dr Mishra leaves AMC after 4.5 years as a GP Partner. Dr Mishra says that “It has been a pleasure and honour to look after you as my patients and I wish you all the very best for the future.”
If you are over 70 and haven’t had your first vaccination yet you can contact the NHS National Booking Service for an appointment.
The NHS is now offering vaccinations to people who are most at risk from Covid-19. This follows the approval of both the Pfizer BioNTech and Oxford AstraZeneca vaccines as safe and effective, after extensive trials.
We have had many expressions of interest in volunteering to help with the vaccination campaign. Our principle need will be for Marshalls to help with traffic (both cars and people) managements. Outdoor/warm clothing required. If you are over 18 and would like to volunteer please complete the form below and we will include you on our email distribution list.
You can access information about the Pfizer BioNTech COVID19 vaccination using the following links:
Frequently Asked Questions
- Who should I contact with questions? You should contact your own GP surgery if you have questions about your appointment. Please review the links above before contacting your own GP surgery with clinical questions.
- Are there toilet facilities: Yes, toilet facilities will be available for patients attending for vaccination and the person immediately accompanying them. Toilet facilities for those not being vaccinated and not immediately supporting a patient are not available due to social distancing requirements.
- Can we use the surgery car park: Yes, the surgery car park is available for use. Due to traffic issues on the surrounding streets we recommend parking in the park and ride car park if possible though.
- Are wheelchairs available: Limited provision of wheelchairs is available, however we would recommend you bring your own if required.
- Where will I sit after: There will be ample sitting space - both indoor and outdoor - available. You should wait for 15 minutes after your vaccination, and then please leave promptly if you feel well in order to reduce the number of people in the centre at any time.
- Both vaccine appointments are during Shabbat - have you considered this: We are aware that a significant number of our community observe Shabbat, and with the help of Cllr Dan Cohen have received advice from Rabbi Kupperman for which we are very grateful. The current vaccine is incredibly complex to deliver, and whilst we will endeavour to offer alternative times when possible, if you are invited to vaccination during Shabbat it is acceptable to receive the vaccination. We can confirm there is no need for any competent adult receiving the vaccination to sign any document – consent is provided verbally. In terms of travel to the centre, for those unable to walk, taxi travel should be pre-arranged and pre-paid which Cllr Cohen has kindly offered to facilitate for those who need it. To facilitate the effective use of such travel arrangements anyone observing Shabbat who attends the centre for vaccination should identify themselves to our stewards and we will ensure that they are ready to leave for their planned journey home which we ask them to plan for 30 mins after their booked appointment time.
