Noticeboard

29/11/2021 - COVID VACCINATIONS.  In light of today's news we need to ask you to be patient and wait for an invite to book your Covid Booster or 2nd Covid vaccination.  Please do not call the surgery.  It will take a few days for the legal paperwork to be updated that allows us to implement the new guidance.  It will also take time for us to put on additional capacity at The Desborough Suite for the expected increased demand.  Patients are asked to book when they receive a booking link rather than walk-in as pre-booked appointments will take priority and you may be turned away.
