Please find here our New Patient Practice Info Leaflet which we also usually give out along with our registration forms.

The Practice does not yet permit patients to register on-line, but you can print off the form, fill it in and return  to the practice with 2 forms of ID of which one should be photographic and the other to show current address. We will then complete the registration for you.  Please allow at least 3 working days for the completion of your registration before booking a GP Appointment or ordering a prescription.

Alternatively, come in and speak to the receptionist who will give you the necessary form and will be available for advice. To register, fill the form and return it. Include your telephone number in case there are any details that we need to clarify with you.

New patients must live within a 5 mile radius of Thornbury Town centre. We accept transfers from the other local practices and you do not have to give any reason for changing practice.

Spring Boosters – UPDATE March/April 2022

 

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.

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.
