Recommended communication from BSol CCG re Covid Booster increased Roll Out
In line with the Government’s announcement, the NHS is aiming to offer every adult the chance to book a COVID-19 booster vaccine by the end of the year. This means our practice is now prioritising the booster rollout.
As part of this, some of our routine services may be stood down temporarily to allow us to focus on protecting as many patients as possible.
We are still there for anyone who may need care for an urgent need, but would ask for patience as we support this key national priority over the coming weeks. We hope to be able to stand back up any services as soon as possible and will update this page as soon as we know more.
Please don’t forget there are many services available for you, depending on your condition. These include:
If you are now eligible for your COVID-19 booster please book it as soon as you can. It is vital as many people as possible get boosted as soon as possible. Please do not ring the practice regarding your boosters, instead visit https://www.birminghamandsolihullcovidvaccine.nhs.uk/ or call 119 to book an appointment or to find a walk-in clinic near you. You can also find out more about who is eligible, how the vaccine is given and other frequently asked questions. If you are a housebound patient, there is a community team which will be coming out to you to vaccinate you, so please do not contact your GP as the team will be making contact with you.
In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a range of clinics and services:
Cathy Groves - mental health, epilepsy, women's health, anti-coagulation and cytotoxic therapy.
Sarah Black - asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Minor surgery – this practice has qualified clinical staff able to undertake minor operations and Joint Injections at the surgery.
Family planning – the doctors and nurses offer a range of family planning services and advice.
Child vaccination clinics
Adult health checks
Hypertension clinics - various appointment times available for the above
Immunisations and advice for foreign travel - available by appointment. Most immunisations are free on the NHS. We do charge, however, for immunisations not available on the NHS. Some vaccines are only available at Private Travel clinics. It is essential to organise these well in advance for planned trips.
Influenza vaccinations – appointments and drop-clinics at various locations including our PCN Hub. We recommend an influenza vaccine for the elderly and patients with certain conditions including chronic heart, lung or kidney disease and diabetics. The vaccination is normally available from October through to early March depending on supplies, but its best to get protected as early in October/November as you can.
Maternity services – the local midwifery services provide a weekly ante-natal care clinic at the surgery. doctors are available for additional consultations, if necessary. Post-natal care is by appointment with the doctors. If you need to speak to a community midwife or the delivery suite please check you green notes for the best telephone numbers to call.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
