School children’s Flu 2021

All school aged children will be vaccinated in school at the end of November 2021.

Face mask will Continue from 19/07/2021 in the GP Practice

Everyone accessing or visiting healthcare facilities must continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing rules, despite COVID restrictions ending in many other settings in England from 19 July.

This means that staff, patients and visitors in GP practices, hospitals, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies, are expected to continue to follow social distancing rules as well as using face coverings and other personal protection equipment to ensure patients and staff are protected.

Chief Nursing Officer for England, Ruth May said: “Face coverings and social distancing measures will remain in place across healthcare settings so that the most vulnerable people can continue to safely attend hospital, their GP surgery, pharmacy or any other healthcare settings for advice, care and treatment.

“And it is important for the public to continue to play their part when visiting NHS and care settings to help protect our staff and patients, particularly those who may be more vulnerable to infections. 

“As restrictions are lifted in many places on Monday everyone has a part to play in helping to control Covid by getting vaccinated and acting responsibly.

“It is vital that in healthcare settings, we do all we can to reduce the risk of infection for those working in our services and those who need our care.”  

Fiona Taylor, chief operating officer at South Sefton and Southport and Formby CCGs said: “We are still in the third wave of the pandemic and there are rising cases of the Delta variant in Sefton.

“We are urging people to keep working together to keep safe. By wearing face coverings, we can protect ourselves and those around us, as we could be carrying COVID-19 but not showing symptoms.

So, continue to wear a face covering, washing your hands and keeping your distance in GP surgeries and other healthcare settings and in busy indoor places. Continue to get tested regularly, whether you have symptoms or not and please, get vaccinated as soon as you can.”

“We’ve all worked so hard and come so far in this pandemic and we’ve got to keep working together to ensure that staff and patients are kept safe.”

Getting vaccinated is the best way of keeping you and those around you safe – for details on where you can get vaccinated click here.

Temporary change to practice operating model

Dear Patient,

Primary Care 24 is completely committed to looking after you and your health. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is putting a lot of pressure on the whole NHS, including general practices. We have decided after a careful thought that we will be able to run a better service by bringing the Netherton Practice to join our Thornton Practice. This will help us to keep our levels of staffing safe and provide the best care possible for you.

This decision has not been an easy one to make, but we are confident that operating from one site will be the best way forward.

New arrangements from 19.03.20

Netherton practice patients – GP practice telephone number will remain the same – 01512476098.  Please continue to use this number to contact the practice.  Please do not attend the practice in person as the building will be closed.

Those patients who have appointments booked will be contacted to rearrange the appointment at Thornton.

Thornton patients – these changes will have no impact on you.
