Falkland House Surgery Noticeboard
If you are in JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation)cohorts 1-9 and haven’t had your first covid-19 vaccination, and don’t have one booked, please contact the practice to arrange as soon as possible. This is for first vaccinations only, if you’ve already had your first vaccination please wait to be contacted about your second appointment.
Please note, if you are not in cohorts 1-9 we will not be able to book you an appointment over the phone. Please wait to be contacted.
DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY IF YOU HAVE A COUGH OR FEVER
Due to the current situation we are temporarily allowing patients to order prescriptions over the phone between 2pm and 5pm. This is for patients who do not have access to online services or email.
In order to support patients with limited access we request that any patients who are able to register for online services contact the Surgery by telephone.

Our Patient Participation Group has successfully applied to the British Heart Foundation in conjunction with the Dept of Health to be supplied with a community defibrillator and cabinet. This is a fantastic result for the whole community. A big thank you to Lynn and her team of dedicated volunteers.The cabinet will be sited on the outside wall of the surgery so will be accessible to surgery staff during practice opening hours as well as members of the public when the surgery is closed. More information can be found on our Patient Group page.
