Out Of Hours

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

When the surgery is closed, medical care is arranged by NHS Bristol using the NHS 111 service. Call 111 to access out of hours care. You can also view 111 online https://111.nhs.uk/

Following initial telephone triage you may be given advice on the telephone. Depending upon the nature of the illness a GP may visit or you will be asked to attend one of the Out of Hours Centres around the city.

Please do not attend Accident and Emergency for non-urgent matters.

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.

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.
