Welcome to The Priory Surgery
We are currently delivering COVID Vaccinations for our patients in collaboration with other local GP Practices. We have set up at Adams Park and will invite people in age groups as is widely publicised by the national media.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL US TO REQUEST A VACCINE. WE WILL CONTACT YOU, WHEN YOUR COHORT IS BEING CALLED AND WE HAVE CONFIRMED VACCINE SUPPLY.
Please note: Mass vaccination centres may send an invitation by post. You can attend these sites or you are welcome to wait for our call. It is your choice. You are still able to attend a GP run site if you do not want to or are not able to attend a mass vaccination site.
Adams Park is fully accessible, with step free access. We have wheelchairs on site to assist and plenty of volunteer helpers.
Our site is running really well and most people wait 1-5 minutes on arrival. There is a mandatory 15 minute wait for everyone after getting the Pfizer vaccination. Our site is expecting to deliver both the Pfizer and the Astra Zeneca Vaccine but we are unable to tell anyone what vaccine they will receive in advance.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home if you have either:
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.
WE ARE NOT TESTING FOR THIS AT PRIORY SURGERY
How long to stay at home
- if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
- if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

Please read the report below that we have written for all our patients and those interested in what we are doing.
This details common concerns that patients are expressing and explains what we are doing about them or why they are occuring.
It also outlines what we are prioritising to try to ensure that we care for the people most in need at the current time.

If you require medical advice or a doctor in an emergency when the surgery is closed please call 111.
Join Our Patient Group
The Priory Surgery patient participation group (PPG) meet regularly and help the surgery to develop. They have organised several events for patients, for instance, carers evenings.
If you think you could help the PPG would always welcome new members. Please contact the surgery and we will put you in contact with the chair.
