The Doctors

We aim to provide personally the highest quality of care possible given the resources available to us. We feel that easy access to care is very important. If you want an appointment just ring up and ask.

Dr Sally Aston [Tuesdays and Fridays]  I qualified from Bristol University medical school in 2006 and then worked in hospitals in Torquay and Gloucester before training as a GP in Taunton. I moved to the Bristol area in 2011 and have worked as a GP locum in and around Bristol since. In my spare time I love to get out into the fresh air with my husband and two young daughters.

 

 


Dr Karen Houghton
[Mondays and Wednesdays] I graduated from Liverpool University and did my GP training in the West Midlands, New Zealand and Bristol. I have worked as a General Practitioner in Bristol for 25 years and enjoy the variety of clinical work afforded by family medicine. My particular interest is child health. Outside work I enjoy time with my family and the ever changing challenge of raising teenagers! I love reading, skiing, cycling, and watching comedy. A sunny day on my bike, with a friend and a stop for a cup of tea with a view, is hard to beat.

Severn View Family Pratice will be commencing the administration of the Covid-19 spring boosters on behalf of Severnvale PCN W/C 4th April. They will be holding the clinics in the Vaccination POD and running them Mon – Fri. Invites will start to be sent out later this week. They will be inviting over 75’s and those in the category of immunosuppressed. Please wait to be invited.

 

The government and NHS England have asked us to focus on vaccinating in the coming weeks,  We appreciate your patience. As always, their team will be working hard to prioritise those who are most in need. Thank you for your understanding.

 

If you have already received a text message or letter from the Surgery about booking your vaccine, please use the link in the text message to make your appointment.

 

If they haven’t yet been in touch, you will hear from them when they have an appointment available. They are working hard to get our appointments set up, so this should be very soon. In the meantime, please do not contact us about getting a vaccination appointment.

 

How to book 

 

Everyone aged over 30 can book a vaccine appointment online. You can do this here. Everyone aged 18 and over is eligible to get their vaccine at a walk-in centre. Full details of walk-in clinics and how to access them are available here (you may need to book an appointment in advance).

Third dose vaccination for severely immunosuppressed aged 12+

The JCVI has advised that people with severely weakened immune systems should have a third COVID-19 vaccine dose.  This is separate to any potential COVID-19 booster vaccination.  There are national recommendations as to who is considered eligible for the third vaccine and General Practices are working with Hospital Specialists locally to identify those who should receive this.  There is no need contact the NHS.  If you or your child is eligible for vaccination, we will contact you.

For more information see  JCVI issues advice on third dose vaccination for severely immunosuppressed – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
