'When will I get my COVID Vaccine'
The NHS will let you know when it is your turn to have the vaccine and you will be invited accordingly. Once the delivery schedules are confirmed and further clinics arranged, patients will be invited according to the cohort schedule determined by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

We are very excited to have started to roll out the Covid-19 vaccination clinics.
At the moment we are limited to strict age cohorts with a limited supply of the vaccine available.
As soon as we add more clinics we will be making contact with patients in accordance with National Guidelines on the strict cohorts that we are allowed to vaccinate next.
At the present time the clinic will be held in The Drill Hall Ware and patients will need to be available for two doses (the 2nd being 21 days later) – We thank you for your patience in this matter.
‘We are still here for your care’
COVID-19 has changed how patients access their GP. The pandemic has supercharged the use of remote consultations in primary care. These will never replace face to face appointments which should be available to all patients where appropriate. However, they can be a convenient way for people to access medical advice and treatment.
There is a risk that if patients don’t feel they have access to a GP for non-urgent issues, they will seek help at A&E.
- Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact your GP surgery will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-face contact where possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus
- Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients, but you may be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you
- In addition to face-to-face consultations, many GP practices may offer consultations online or over the phone. This can be a convenient and flexible way to receive healthcare but if you would prefer to see a GP or healthcare professional in person then this can be discussed with the clinician.
Ways to seek healthcare advice from a GP
- Call your surgery to discuss a face-to-face or virtual (telephone or video) appointment
- Visit your GP surgery website and complete a confidential online form to receive a response before the end of the next working day
- Download the NHS App to order repeat prescriptions, book appointments and check your symptoms
All patients, carers and visitors attending Buntingford Medical Centre or The Puckeridge Surgery are now required to wear a face covering. We thank you for your co-operation and ongoing support during this time.
