COVID INFORMATION 

In the best interests of all other vulnerable patients and staff we kindly ask anyone entering the practice to wear a face covering and to sanitise hands on entry.  

Please check-in 5 minutes before your appointment time using the intercom at the front door.   If no symptoms or close contact issues are identified you will gain access to reception and asked to wait until called for your appointment.

Carers   Please note that 'Advice for Carers and Young Carers during COVID-19 Pandemic' has been updated. The advice is available at the following Link

CHILDREN 12-17 YEARS OF AGE  - At the current time, JCVI advises that children 12 to 15 years of age with severe neuro-disabilities, Down’s syndrome, underlying conditions resulting in immunosuppression, and those with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD), severe learning disabilities or who are on the learning disability register are considered at increased risk for serious COVID-19 disease and should be offered COVID-19 vaccination. 

JCVI also advises that children and young people aged 12 years and over who are household contacts of persons (adults or children) who are immunosuppressed should be offered COVID-19 vaccination on the understanding that the main benefits from vaccination are related to the potential for indirect protection of their household contact who is immunosuppressed.     Book appointments through a Trust Centre.

CPRD & THIN anonymised patient data is extracted from Meadowbridge Surgery and has provided evidence for drug safety guidance and improved healthcare delivery.  More than 2,800 medial and public heath research studies have been published using CPRD/THIN data.  A small number of patients may want to opt out of having their records included in either CPRD or THIN data collection.  The default is that consent is assumed unless the patient specifically expresses dissent.  

N Ireland Electronic Care Record (NIECR) allows care professionals and authorised staff to get important information about their patients medical and social care history.
