Covid 19 Vaccine
We are delighted to confirm that we have agreed to work with Cardiff & Vale UHB in administering the University of Oxford, AstraZeneca vaccine to our patients aged 80 and over
At the moment the Health Board have only asked us to immunise the over 80s in line with the national priority list. (This will not include patients in residential or care homes as the health board is organising these groups).
We are currently very busy planning how we deliver the vaccine to eligible patients and undertaking the necessary training and accreditation to enable us to start vaccinating.
Whilst we await delivery, we continue to plan and work through the necessary actions that need to be completed in line with national guidance. We would appreciate your patience during this time.
Once everything is in place we will automatically start calling our patients (aged 80 and over) in for appointments.
We have not yet been asked to help vaccinate any other age groups or those at risk (including those who were advised to shield).
We will continue to keep patients informed via our website and social media, so please do not contact to enquire as this will only add pressures to our phone lines when we have patients trying to call us for urgent care.
We would really appreciate your thoughts and ideas. We are trying to improve access for our patients and would appreciate you feedback by completing the survey below.

Novel Coronavirus – advice for patients
Please do not attend your GP surgery, community pharmacy or A&E department if you have any symptoms of Novel Coronavirus to stop the spread of infection.
The latest advice is to self-isolate for 7 days if you have a new continuous cough or high temperature. The 4 UK Chief Medical Officers confirmed the loss or change in smell or taste (anosmia) has been added to the list of symptoms of coronavirus.
If you live with other people, the entire household should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person gets symptoms.
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days. If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
If you are worried about symptoms of Coronavirus you should use the NHS Direct Wales online symptom checker at https://www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk/
You can help stop the spread of Novel Coronavirus by ensuring you practise good hygiene. Cough and sneeze into a tissue, bin it and immediately wash your hands with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds.
**Everyone over the age of 5 in Wales with symptoms can book a coronavirus test.**
Anyone experiencing the coronavirus symptoms will be able to apply for a home testing kit using the new UK online portal. For further information and a link to the booking website, visit: www.gov.wales/coronavirus or www.llyw.cymru/coronafeirws. This will be supported by a national 119 phone service, through which people can also order a home test.
Due to the current Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak we are trying to limit the number of patients coming to our surgery
