COVID Vaccination Programme

We are continuing to book our patients in for their vaccination appointments at Penrith Hospital which is your local GP Practice led vaccination site staffed by the Practice staff you are familiar with.

Aged 70+ cohort patients will have been offered an appointment and been vaccinated by 12th February.

Aged 65+ patients will be offered a vaccination appointment for the week commencing 15th February.

We are working very hard with less than 7 days notice to contact you for your appointment. Please do not worry if we have not yet called you we have your name on our lists and will be in touch.

Thank you for your patience and support.

Surgery Information

Do not book a GP appointment if you think you might have coronavirus. Instead stay at home and self-isolate avoiding close contact with other members of your household.

Use the 111 coronavirus service to see if you need medical help.
If you do speak to one of our Doctors you must inform them of all symptoms you are experiencing.

During the current COVID-19 outbreak, patients experiencing certain symptoms (breathing issues and / or fever) and who have been telephone assessed by a GP to need a face-to-face examination will be called to our local ‘Red Hub’.
