A range of services are offered that include Practice Nurse, Advanced Nurse Practitioner and GP appointments, NHS vaccinations and long term condition clinics.

COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAMME

We are currently prioritising our workload to deliver the Covid-19 vaccination programme.  Consequently, there may be a longer wait than usual for non-essential services during this time.

If you have a non-urgent query or problem, please consider using the pharmacy, 111 or Minor Injury units for advice where possible and appropriate.

2nd Dose Covid-19 Vaccine

You will receive your invitation for your 2nd Covid-19 vaccination at approximately 10 weeks after your first injection.   Please wait for the booking team to contact you BUT if it is almost 12 weeks since your 1st dose and you have not yet received an invitation, please contact the surgery.  

All patients aged 50+

Patients aged 50+ can now book an appointment for their covid-19 vaccination at Babington Hospital.  If you have not received a text message, please contact the surgery to book.
