FOR INFO: Wellbeing advice for patients who are due to come for their covid vaccine
Dear patient, If you have a covid vaccination booked, please be advised that you may have to wait outside of the practice whilst you wait for your turn, this is to reduce the number of people in the practice at one time and to ensure we can maintain social distancing.
After you have had your vaccination you will be asked to wait 15 minutes so practice staff can observe you in case you have a reaction. If the waiting area does get too full we have a marquee set up for patients to wait in outside.
Although you will be sheltered under a marquee, it is still cold and therefore it’s advised that you:
- Do not arrive at the practice too early for your appointment, please only arrive a maximum of 10 minutes early
- Please wrap up warm – bring a big coat, hat, gloves and a scarf
- Have transport arrangements planned beforehand

Firth Park Surgery would like to invite you to join DoctorLink.
We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can:
- Access advice
- Book appointments online
- Request Fit/Sick Notes
Sign-up is simple and you can create an account here
For all urgent appointment, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.
The symptom assessment will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.
The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self-care.
If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at your GP Practice, you simply click on the “book an appointment” button and book your appointment directly.
If no appointments are available, you will see a “request an appointment” button, please click this.
Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
It was announced that from July 24th 2020 everyone is required to wear a face covering when entering a shop or business.
This is in addition to wearing one on Public Transport which has been mandatory for some time now.
If you feel you are unable to wear a mask for auditory/sensory/breathing reasons, please visit https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own and download an exemption card for you to show if asked why you are not wearing one.
