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.

Temporary Residents / Holidaymakers

 

Urgent care

Temporary residents and holidaymakers are asked to go online or call 111 first if they need urgent care.  The aim is to minimise the number of minor presentations to our emergency department and to direct people to the appropriate service or self-care options. 

 

Chronic Illness

Anyone staying in our catchment area that needs to speak with a GP regarding chronic disease management must telephone their registered GP. This will aid the management of your care as your GP will have a full record of your medical history and can also undertake a video or telephone consultation if required.

 

Medication

Anyone staying in our catchment area that needs to speak with a GP regarding medication also must telephone their registered GP

If you have run out of/lost your medication, your registered GP can send your prescription electronically to a local pharmacy here for you to collect.

 

Minor Injury

If you suffer from a minor injury, there are two minor injury units locally:

Camborne and Redruth Community Hospital – includes a Primary Care Centre

01209 318000 – 8am to 10pm every day.

Falmouth Community Hospital

01326 430030 – 8am to 8pm every day. 

 

We appreciate that we are all trying to navigate through these unprecedented times and hope that this will aid better patient care.
