Welcome to York Street Medical Practice

Covid Vaccination – Depending on age, patients without an underlying health condition can now book a covid vaccination at one of the large vaccination centres. Please check the media for the current age groups being vaccinated. Appointments can be booked by ringing 119 or clicking HERE  

NHS England have asked us to work with other local practices to deliver some vaccines from East Barnwell Health Centre to clinically vulnerable patients. We will also shortly be delivering 2nd doses to the patients who had their 1st vaccine with us.  Vaccine availability varies over time so we will only run clinics when we have supplies. When vaccines become available the Centre will be staffed by clinicians and administrators from a number of practices including York Street. Clinics will be held at various times and car parking for patients is available. We would love to be able to deliver the vaccine here at York Street but unfortunately at the moment there are no plans for this to happen.

The NHS has established a list of priority groups which will be vaccinated in order.

When you are eligible to have your vaccine you will receive either a letter or text from NHS England or a text / phone call from York Street asking you to book an appointment. This will be at either  one of the large vaccination centres or at East Barnwell Health Centre.  Please be aware that the NHS will never ask for payment for the Covid-19 vaccination and any text message requesting payment should be ignored. Please do not ring the surgery if you receive a letter from NHS England but instead, follow the instructions it contains.

The vaccinations at the large sites are being managed separately from our own vaccine programme and we have no input to this. 

Please don’t contact the NHS or York Street to seek a vaccine before you are invited. If you have not yet been approached about having the Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information HERE. You can also find further information on the Covid-19 vaccine HERE. Please continue to abide by all the social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.

Coronavirus – Important information

For the latest general information on Coronavirus click here. If you think you may have symptoms click here

We have been open throughout the pandemic but in order to maintain the safety of staff and patients we are restricting access to the building. All GP consultations will initially be by phone and you may then be invited for a face to face appointment. Face to face nurse appointments can be booked in advance but are also being restricted. You will only be allowed to enter the building if you have a pre-booked appointment with a clinician.  If coming to the surgery for an appointment please wear a face covering. You will need to ring a dedicated number displayed on the door when you arrive. You will be asked some screening questions before the clinician comes out to collect you.

Please note that we do not issue letters exempting patients from wearing face coverings in public. This is in line with the guidance that we have received from the local medical committee of the BMA. This guidance is HERE. If you feel you are exempt from wearing a face mask you can download a card HERE
