Welcome to St Mary's Surgery
COVID-19 vaccination roll out
Based on the recommendation of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, the government has introduced a priority list for who should receive the vaccine and in what order.
It will take time to get through the list but please be reassured everyone who is eligible will be offered a vaccination at the earliest opportunity.
Please DO NOT call the surgery. We will contact you when it is your turn.
Download a copy of the priority list here.
Public Health England has published a leaflet about the vaccination rollout. Download a copy here.

Appointments and face coverings
Please ONLY come to the surgery if you have a confirmed appointment or are collecting a prescription you know is ready.
Please only arrive a few minutes before your appointment time. This will enable the surgery to continue practising social distancing and help keep all our patients safe.
At the door ALL patients will be screened, including having their temperature taken.
We encourage patients to wear a face covering, where possible, when attending the surgery.
If you think you may be exempt or are unable to wear a face covering for health reasons, you can download and print off exemption cards to put on your mobile phone or to carry with you.
