In line with the Government announcement re: boosters, Manor Primary Care will be running with reduced capacity from now until 31st January 2022 to enable delivery of the COVID-19 vaccination programme. Some of our routine services will not be available during this time. Please only contact the surgery if you require urgent, same day treatment, or concerns about severe illness. Please remember if you are visiting the surgery face coverings are required for the safety of other patients, and staff. Pharmacies are available for minor ailments such as colds, urinary infections, conjunctivitis and over the counter medications/advice. Please only attend A&E in a serious or life threatening emergency. If you would like to book a COVID vaccination in Skem or the North West please contact 119 or visit www.nhs.uk. The surgery cannot help with vaccine queries such as overseas vaccinations or travel certificates, please ring 119 for help with these matters. We ask that patients be kind to our staff, they are working extremely hard in unprecedented circumstances and we thank you for your support and patience during this pandemic.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy and healthy new year.

Covid Vaccine Passport
If you need covid vaccination certificate, please don't call the surgery. You can get one by ordering on the link below
PCR and Lateral Flow
PCR and lateral flow (LFT) have different roles to play:
LFT is useful for finding out if an asymptomatic person is infectious now, to prevent unknowing transmission of the virus to others.
A PCR test is more sensitive in the earlier stages of having covid symptoms when lower levels of the virus are in the body, but this PCR test MUST be used when someone is showing symptoms (and not LFT)
Important Information about Vaccine Passport
How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status
You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.
If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.
Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
