Important Covid Booster information

* Patients aged 18 are now able to book their booster jabs. We are sending text messages to all our patients advising this.

* Please telephone the surgery to arrange an appointment in one of our weekly clinics.

* Alternatively you can access these appointments via the Patient Access App if you are signed up for it.

Access to General Practice

* General practice is working hard to support the covid-19 vaccination programme, we are still here for you but the way you access care may be different

* Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients where there is a clinical need. You will be asked to first discuss your conditions over the phone or online with a member of the healthcare team to assess what would be most appropriate for you and which practice member would best provide it.

* Most common conditions can be assessed and diagnosed by your doctor by telephone or video consultation. They are experienced and skilled in doing this. Using technology like this will help to protect you, your family and loved ones - and GP practice staff from the potential risk of the virus.

* General practice services are extremely busy and are working hard to treat as many patients as possible.


We want to hear from you!

Telephone Calls with a GP

For pre-booked telephone calls with a GP please be aware that they can only ring you once. Please ensure that you are ready, with your phone at hand, and are available to receive a telephone call within the allocated time window.

Please note, due to pressures caused by the pandemic, doctors are only able to deal with one problem per telephone consultation or face to face appointment. 

Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination

If you require proof of vaccination for purposes such as travel, please download the NHS App. Your COVID vaccinations will be displayed in the App if you were vaccinated in England.
If you were vaccination in England and your vaccinations are not appearing on the NHS App, please contact the practice. We will report the issue to the national support team and will contact you with further information.

If you were vaccinated in Wales please contact NHS Wales to get their COVID Pass:
Please provide us with proof of vaccination so we can update your medical records, as notification of vaccination is not currently coming through automatically for patients vaccinated in Wales.

If you were vaccinated outside of the country, please provide us with proof of vaccination so we can update your medical records. Please note that this will not appear on the NHS App or COVID Pass.

National Support - COVID-19

The Government have launched a new website to use in finding out what help you can get if you are affected by coronavirus:

Never too late to come forward for your COVID-19 vaccination (Northgate Village Surgery is no longer undertaking 1st or 2nd vaccinations but you can arrange your appointment as stated below)

Rising COVID-19 infection rates across Cheshire provide a stark reminder of both the importance of vaccination against the virus and the ongoing relevance of the Hands, Face, Space, Fresh Air guidance.  Vaccination is clinically-proven to reduce your risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 and your risk of catching or spreading COVID-19. It also provides protection against COVID-19 variants.   Anyone aged 16 or over can arrange their COVID-19 vaccination appointments online via the National Booking System or by calling 119.

Alternatively, you can attend a local walk-in vaccination clinic

Please continue to refer to this central webpage for Cheshire's latest walk-in clinic

Anyone who received a COVID-19 vaccination during the early stages of the vaccination programme (priority groups 1 to 9) is eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster vaccination.

  • In Cheshire, booster vaccinations are being delivered at dozens of GP and pharmacy-led vaccination centres.
  • The quickest and easiest way to arrange your booster vaccination appointment is online via the National Booking System (or by calling 119).
  • In line with national guidance, there must be at least a six-month gap between your second jab and your booster vaccination.
  • Please be aware that you may be invited to a different vaccination centre this time around and, in some cases, a flu jab may be offered at the same time.

More information about Cheshire’s COVID-19 Vaccination Programme – including booster vaccination eligibility – is available here

GP Appointments Update - COVID-19

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact where possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you. If the Doctor feels you need to be seen, they will arrange for you to come in. If you have coronavirus symptoms please do not attend the Practice.

To ensure patient and staff safety, if you have a booked appointment you must arrive at the time of your appointment - if you are early then the clinical room may not be available, so we may ask you to return at your appointment time.

Wherever possible, please complete an online consultation instead of telephoning by clicking HERE.

Nurse Appointments Update - COVID-19

After several months of running extremely limited nurse clinics, we are now able to offer pre-bookable routine appointments for things such as cervical smears, blood tests and health reviews.

To ensure patient and staff safety, if you have a booked appointment you must arrive at the time of your appointment - if you are early then the clinical room may not be available, so we may ask you to return at your appointment time.

Please note that while we are not currently offering ear syringing appointments, you can still book a telephone consultation with one of our Nurses for advice on how to treat a blocked ear at home.
