COVID VACCINE BOOSTER UPDATE
We are delighted to announce that we will shortly be starting our COVID vaccine booster programme. Please do not be in touch with the surgery as we will contact you via text/email (or phone if neither of these are listed with the surgery). We are not able to invite you until at least 180 days have passed since your second covid vaccine. Please note that all boosters will be with the Pfizer vaccine irrespective of whether you had Pfizer or Astra Zeneca for your first two doses unless there is a specific reason you cannot have Pfizer.
As you are aware General Practice is having unprecedented demand at present and in order to offer the covid boosters at the same time as maintaining our usual service this is causing a significant stretch on our already exhausted staff. Please can we ask that you be patient and wait for us to be in touch regarding your booster. It is for these reasons that we will only be offering the booster to our most vulnerable patients in Cohorts 1 to 4 only (over 70s and extremely vulnerable i.e. those that have had to shield). If you are not in these cohorts you will be invited to book in via the national booking system once your 180 days have passed. Please note that this time around there are several of these sites in the neighbouring areas and you should hopefully not have to travel too far.
Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.

Welcome To The Broadshires Health Centre
The Broadshires Health Centre is a modern purpose-built complex. Opened in March 2001, the health centre has brought together many aspects of primary health care under one roof. There is also a dentist and a pharmacy situated on the same site.
Reception is open weekdays 8:00am - 6:30pm Doctors’ surgeries are at varying times during this period. Please note that a normal consultation is 10 minutes' duration and is for ONE person only. If you require other members of your family to be seen by a doctor, they will require individual appointments.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
