Coronavirus infection (COVID-19) & Pregnancy
Pregnant women are a priority group for the booster vaccination. If you are pregnant there is a higher risk of becoming seriously ill from Coronavirus (COVID-19). If you become ill with COVID late in your pregnancy, your baby could also be at risk.
If you have not yet had your first two vaccinations or the booster vaccination, it's important to get your vaccination as soon as possible. If you are pregnant and have already received your first series of vaccinations, you should have a seasonal booster injection.
Contact NHS 119 for help with making a vaccination appointment.

Ordering your repeat prescription
The Practice doctors are aiming to improve continuity of care with your prescriptions, and will be trying to ensure that your usual doctor will manage your prescriptions at all times, unless on holiday or sick. For these reasons it may take a little longer to process your prescription depending on the days your doctor works. Please help the doctors by putting in your prescriptions 7 working days before they are required and request all medications needed at one time (i.e order everything for the month/two months in one go if possible to bring all prescriptions into line.) Any spare medication may be returned to the pharmacy when collecting your next prescription so that you will have the correct amount at home. Thank you for your support
Remember, you may order a repeat prescription to be collected from your chosen pharmacy in three main ways.

Don't keep it to yourself if you are feeling unwell
There is a concern in the NHS that people who need to be treated for a heart problem may be avoiding seeking help because of a fear of contracting Covid-19. You have to make a balanced decision that weighs your fear about the corona virus, against the very real need to seek help for a heart condition
Do not delay because you think hospitals are too busy - the NHS still has systems in place to treat people for heart attacks and strokes.
You will be kept apart from patients suffering from suspected or confirmed coronavirus, making it very unlikely you will become infected. If you delay, you are more likely to suffer serious heart damage and more likely to need intensive care and to spend longer in hospital.
You may find out more about the symptoms that you might experience if you have a stroke, a heart attack or are suffering from heart failure by clicking on the image on the right.
it is essential to dial 999 if you have symptoms that could be a heart attack or a stroke, or if your heart symptoms get worse, whether or not you have coronavirus symptoms.
