We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
** PLEASE NOTE PATIENTS ARE NOW REQUIRED TO WEAR A FACE MASK / COVERING WHEN ATTENDING THE SURGERY**
All GP appointments are currently telephone in the first instance, the GP will then ask you to come in if necessary. This is to protect you from the risk of COVID-19. Most queries and conditions can be managed either via the telephone, or by video consultations.
If you have any health concerns or queries please give the surgery a call - we are open as normal.
** Vaccination for Covid Update**
Covid 19 Vaccine
When will I get my Covid -19 Vaccine
First Phase of COVID-19 Vaccination Programme
The Covid 19 vaccination programme is now underway. When it is your turn to have the vaccine the NHS will contact you. Please do not call the surgery.
The Practice is working in partnership with NHSE, the CCG and PCN to facilitate the structured roll out of the Covid Vaccine and will be mandated to follow guidance.
For now your understanding and patience is sought please.
** OVER 50s FLU **
You will no doubt have heard in the media this morning, that those aged 50-64 will be able to receive a flu vaccine from 1/12/20. General practices are learning this information at the same time as you. Practices are doing all they can to prepare and source vaccines, they will be in contact with patients as soon as they are able.
In the meantime please do not contact your surgery about flu vaccines if you are in this group until you are asked to do so.
*Please check here for any updates.*
**Update - We are running a flu vaccine clinic at Hasland Medical Centre on 16.01.21 for eligible patients aged between 18 and 64. Please ring to make an appointment. Thank you **

Last year the practice began work on major changes to Avenue House Surgery building. Unfortunately, the car park will be closed to patients for the duration of the project.
We realise this is not ideal and will cause inconvenience for our patients and we do apologise for this.
