COVID-19 Vaccine Update
If you have received a letter from the national booking system about a vaccination, please click here if you require further information. Please click here for vaccination information for over 70's. You can view our FAQs here. New guidance has been issued for the use of the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, please click here to find out more information.
We're currently offering vaccinations to those at greatest risk of COVID-19 first (care home residents and workers, frontline health and social care staff and people aged 80 and over), in line with the recommendations from the Joint Committee for Vaccinations & Immunisations (JCVI).
As we're focusing on vaccinating people as quickly as possible, we're not yet able to confirm where patients are on the list, or when they're likely to be contacted. When it's your turn, you will be invited to make an appointment. Please do not contact the practice beforehand.
Please don't be worried if you or a family member is over 80 but hasn't heard anything so far. You might know others over 80 who have been invited for their vaccination already, but that does not mean that you or your relative are a lower priority. This is only the start of the vaccination programme and it will take some time to work through everyone.
COVID-19 Vaccination Certification Queries

Street Lane Practice approach
As a GP Practice we are now undertaking a range of work to support the government response to the coronavirus outbreak. Please click here to view more information on how we will process your personal data in the course of this work. You can also click here to view our full COVID-19 privacy notice.
At this time please do not attend the practice, unless you are advised to do so by a member of the Practice team. If you are asked to attend the practice, you will be kept separate from other patients and the Dr will be wearing full PPE. Please note all patients who are required to attend the practice will be asked to wear a face covering.
Based on Government guidance, our approach at Street Lane Practice approach is:
In general we will try to switch all possible appointments to telephone triage or video consultation. This may involve prescribing antibiotics by phone for coughs and sore throats which, in the name of good antibiotic stewardship, we wouldn't usually consider. This would be intended as a measure to keep potentially infective patients away from those patients who need to attend the surgery for other problems.
If a patient needs to attend the surgery for face to face review he/she will be screened for flu-like symptoms. If these symptoms are present you will be seen by a GP in protective gear in a designated consultation room. If these symptoms are not present you will be seen at the surgery in the usual way.
Any complaints or compliments can be sent in by contacting the Practice Manager either verbally, by email or by letter. Please click here to view our complaints procedure. Our Caldicott guardian is Dr Sunderland.
