Welcome to Shirley Medical Centre

COVID19 UPDATE

From Monday 25th May during Level 2 please phone as usual to make an appointment with your doctor. We are unable to see unannounced patients except in medical emergencies, please ring ahead.

All patients with respiratory symptoms (cough, fever, runny/blocked nose and loss of smell) that phone to make an appointment will be triaged by a doctor. If you are triaged as needing to see a doctor, a face to face appointment will be made. On arrival to the medical centre for your appointment please stay in your car and call us to say you have arrived, and we will come and get you from your car. You will be asked to wear a mask.

Patients with no respiratory symptoms please phone to make an appointment as usual. You can decide if you would prefer that appointment to be a face to face or a phone/video consult.

ALL PATIENTS  When you arrive for your appointment please stay in your car and call to say you have arrived.  We will collect you from your car. Your temperature will be taken prior to entering the medical centre.

All consults (face to face/telephone/video) attract the normal fee.

The MOH has asked us to continue the following activities and encourage you to not delay in contacting us:

  • COVID-19 Testing – no charge to patient
  • Cervical smear
  • All childhood and Adult Immunisations
  • B12 injections
  • Flu vaccinations
  • Depo and long term contraception
  • Minor surgery including skin lesions of conern

FLU VACCINES

If you are 65+, pregnant or have a eligible health condition please phone now to book your flu vaccine. Please be aware the flu jab will be given in the car-park, so please dress appropriately with easy access to the top of your arm.

The Ministry of Health have advised that our eligible population of patients will be our priority. Flu vaccines will be available in very limited supply to the general population from 27th April. We are still experiencing some supply issues - so please phone for an appointment.

For more information of eligibility please go to the 'our services' page and look under the 'flu vaccines' drop-down.

WHY

We must protect our vulnerable patients. Information received from Italy tells us that doctor waiting rooms contribute significantly to the spread of COVID-19. We need to reduce the number of sick and vulnerable people gathering in our practice.
