Appointments during the Covid-19 pandemic
The Surgery main doors will be open again from 26th July 2021. Appointments are running mainly face to face, unless you as a patient request otherwise. Telephone appointments are available still for those who prefer them.
We are still attempting to restrict numbers of people we allow to access the building at one time, so ask that you attend your appointment alone where possible.
Recent guidance suggests that covid restrictions including social distancing and mask wearing are still mandatory in all health and social care settings. GPs, nurses and reception staff will all be wearing their masks so please do not forget yours.
The Surgery has no access to covid vaccine stock. All Sittingbourne patients are receiving their covid vaccinations at AGE UK or at other hubs. There are now walk in 'grab a jab' clinics available at some hubs in Kent - please click here for more information or alternatively you can call 119 for advice.
If you are under 18, you must have a valid medical condition in order to be vaccinated. Vaccinations are not currently being provided otherwise and vaccines for events or holidays will not be considered. Please speak to 119 if you have not yet been vaccinated and you consider yourself to have a qualifying medical condition.
You will also need to have a valid medical condition in order to be able to have access to a second vaccination sooner than 8 weeks. This again will need to be discussed with 119.
