Due to staff shortages we have to close the following sites,
Cotmanhay surgery will close at 3pm on Friday13th May
Kirk Hallam surgery will close at 12pm on Monday 16th, and 23rd May
Sorry for any inconvenience caused please contact the Old Station Surgery for enquiries during these closures.
We have been notified of a text scam that has been sent to patients purporting to be from their GP practice. The text could easily be mistaken as a legitimate notification as the recipient’s mobile will show the text grouped with legitimate texts from their own GP practice.
The message advises them that they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Omicron and that they must order a test kit using a link within the text. The link then asks for a payment of £0.99 for postage.
GP Practices will not text you in this way seeking payment for text kits.
Patients should be vigilant to avoid providing personal information such as bank details to fraudsters.
Spring booster programme
Please note that the Erewash practices will be offering the over 75s Spring booster in late April, anyone who is eligible will receive a text or phone call from their Practice to book their appointment.
If you are eligible and you wish to make an appointment before late April, please contact 119 or go to https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ to book an appointment at an alternative vaccine centre in Derbyshire.
Please avoid contacting our reception team about the Spring booster as currently this is the only information we have, and this increases the waiting times for people who need medical attention. Any updates will be added to our website, and eligible patients will be contacted.
Many thanks for your support and assistance.
NHS staff regularly come into contact with vulnerable patients, so are unable to attend work if they have Covid-19.
Please help prevent more staff shortages by not attending the surgery if you have tested positive to Covid-19 or are awaiting test results
Face coverings remain a requirement under infection prevention control guidance in healthcare settings.
Thank you for your understanding.
