IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE MARKET CROSS SURGERY

COVID VACCINATIONS

We are all pleased to hear that there will be a programme of Covid vaccinations starting in the coming weeks. The surgery is currently involved with our neighbouring Practices in devising a mechanism for delivering this unprecedented programme and we will be communicating with you once we have confirmation of delivery of the vaccines. Despite what you may see or hear in the press no patient is able to make an appointment to have a Covid vaccination with us at this time and those eligible will contacted directly as soon as we are in position to begin our vaccination programme.

PLEASE DO NOT RING THE SURGERY TO MAKE A COVID VACCINATION APPOINTMENT AS THIS WILL TIE UP A TELEPHONE LINE AT THIS BUSY TIME OF YEAR FOR OUR RECEPTION STAFF.

VITAMIN D FOR THE MOST CLINICALLY VULNERABLE

You may have seen in the press that the Government is writing out to patients who have been classed as most clinically vulnerable (those who were shielding during the first wave of Coronavirus) to offer a free 4 month course of vitamin D tablets. If you are eligible for this free supply from the Government you will need to register your details between 30th November and 4th January 2021 at the following link

If you are unable to access this site yourself please ask a friend or relative to help you.

For the rest of the population you can find general advice regarding vitamin d at

We remain extremely grateful to our patients for their tolerance and understanding during this difficult period for the NHS. Your cooperation makes our jobs a little easier. We will continue to update you on developments as they occur.
