COVID-19 vaccinations

Please DO NOT call or email the Practice asking when your COVID Vaccination (either first or second dose) is going to be.

We are currently working through Cohorts 5 & 6 and catching up with the very last of previous cohorts.

There have been very thorough assessments made of those deemed to be 'clinically extremely vulnerable' and 'higher risk of serious disease and mortality' so there is no need to clarify this with the practice.

We have processes to ensure no one is missed and you will be contacted shortly if you have not yet had your first dose.

Do not contact the surgery to ask about your vaccination unless it is to provide an up to date mobile number via mullion.healthcentre@nhs.net with the title "mobile number".

Here is the Government Website link which is useful with regards to the vaccination programme and definitions.

New Patient Registration register_now

If you live in our practice area and wish to register with us please visit the surgery with two forms of identification; preferably one photo ID such as a passport or driving licence and one with proof of address like a recent utility bill (within the last 6 months). This only applies to those patients aged 18 and over.

The receptionist will ask you to make an appointment with our practice nurse to have a 'New Patient Check' . This involves a 15 to 20 minute appointment where you will be asked a few questions about your present and past health. This is to make sure your GP has some current background should you need to be seen before your paper/computer notes arrive from your previous surgery. For this reason it is important you attend this appointment.

Your registration with the practice will include being allocated a named GP, and if you have a preference for a specific GP you may request one.  However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate requests to be allocated to a specific GP`s list as we need to allocate patients equally.

A patient`s named GP will take lead responsibility for that patients overall care at the practice and patients should contact the practice if they wish to know who their named GP is.

Please note: we cannot register anyone who lives outside our practice area - if you are in any doubt please telephone us beforehand.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
