Covid-19 Support

Last Updated October 22.

Please note this page contains information relating to the COVID Pandemic some of which is no longer current. However we have left it available to view as it still contains lots of useful information about our services as well as information about support that is available to patients.

If you think you might have coronavirus or you’ve been in close contact with someone who has it visit NHS 111 online coronavirus service for advice.

Update from us all at GSGMC 

COVID-19 Vaccine: All patients over 18 years can now book a Covid vaccination booster.

Use the NHS website at Book a coronavirus vaccination – NHS ( or contact 119

Our Medical Centre is open for our normal hours but some services have changed. We are receiving a very large number of queries at the present time so we ask for your patience with longer than usual delays in responding to queries.

  • You can do lots of things on-line such as request repeat prescriptions, send prescription-related queries and even view parts of your medical record. We can send prescriptions electronically to any chemist in the UK, perhaps close to your work if required. This is the preferred method rather than collecting in person.
  • New patients can also download registration forms.

  • We are now able to offer on-line consultations (eConsults) which allow you to get advice from your Doctor, request a sick certificate or general self help information. See the homepage of our website. Your Doctor may also offer you a video consultation if acceptable to you. You will require a smartphone to use this service.
  • CERTIFICATE FOR SELF ISOLATING. If you need a certificate for work please do not telephone us but use this NHS link where you can easily obtain one.
  • If you have a routine non-urgent problem to discuss we would suggest you defer making an appointment until the Coronavirus threat has passed.
  • Please also avoid making appointments for medication reviews (even if your prescription states that one is due). Either add a message if you request on-line or speak to a Receptionist. We will be allowing limits to lapse and will issue your medication in most cases without seeing you. However you may be asked to make a telephone appointment.
  • Visiting patients at home takes a great deal of our time and places a significant burden on our over-stretched services. Please only request a Home Visit if it is absolutely essential. If you are not sure the Receptionist may be able to to help or you can speak to one of the Doctors. There are likely to be prolonged waits for Home Visits. Always telephone before 10 am if you require a home visit.
  • Childhood immunisations are available as normal. Please don’t put off having your child immunised.

Face coverings when using NHS services

All patients and visitors to NHS services must wear a face covering at all times.  This includes hospitals, community clinics and GP services.  Evidence has confirmed that face coverings can help reduce the risk of transmission if you are suffering from coronavirus, but not showing symptoms.  

The government has set out advice for people on how to make their own face coverings easily at home, using scarves or other textile items. These face coverings should cover the mouth and nose, whilst allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandanna that ties behind the head to give a snug fit. 

Please wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before putting on a face covering and after taking it off. Please avoid touching your face covering whilst wearing it to avoid transmission of the virus.  

If you attend an appointment without a face covering, you will be provided with a face mask but only in an emergency. Otherwise you may be asked to re-book your appointment so please ensure you come prepared with a mask
