Update 17th March 2021

If you have received a text from us inviting you for your covid vaccine, but you do not wish to have it, please reply stating that you decline.  This will allow us to update our records accordingly and stop us from contacting you again in the future.  

Update 4th February 2021

The Army, RAF and Navy are supporting COVID19 vaccinations of the housebound in Fleetwood and Blackpool North (those registered with Practices at Moor Park).

Military medics in uniform will be visiting people in their homes to provide vaccinations. 

We're delighted to be working in partnership with our military colleagues as we look to protect the most vulnerable people in our area as quickly as possible.  

Clinics have also started downstairs at Moor Park Health Centre, run by a Pharmacy group.  Patients are able to book into these clinics once they have received their letter from the NHS.  

20th January 2021

Local vaccination services are being set up across the country and the Fylde Coast.  These services vary in different areas, but include GP practices, local authority sourced buildings or other local facilities, as well as roving teams who have started delivering the vaccine in care homes.  

We can conform that people living in North Blackpool and Bispham have already started to receive COVID-19 vaccinations with hundreds being vaccinated at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals.  A clinic was also run at Wyre Civic Centre in Poulton-le-Fylde at the weekend and another is planned for this coming weekend.  

The two GP Practices in Bispham have worked together with a community pharmacy to develop a vaccinations service in the town which will be launched next week. 

We understand people are both keen and anxious to get vaccinated as soon as possible, but please let us reassure you that it wont be long at all before people in the top priority groups are contacted by the NHS to book their appointments to receive their vaccination in Bispham. 

12th January 2021

 We are receiving a large number of comments and questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccinations programme.

Clinics have now been launched at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals and a number of community sites run by GP practices. These clinics have been aimed primarily at those aged over 80.

 Please be assured that if you are over 80 and have not been contacted yet, or have a friend or relative who is still waiting, they will be offered a vaccine soon.

 Along with all our other local GP practices, we have drawn up lists of these patients, however the Pfizer vaccine comes in packs of 975, so it is not possible to vaccinate everyone at once and so some people have to wait slightly longer for the next batch to be delivered.

Vaccination clinics in the community are being run by a designated practice for each area.  This means when you are invited for your vaccination it may not be your own GP practice that contacts you, but the local vaccinations service.

The new Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccine is being directed initially to people who are housebound or living in care homes, but with more vaccines now becoming available we are confident more people will be vaccinated quickly.

 We would like to thank you for your patience at this time and ask that you do not contact us to book a vaccine. We will be in touch as soon as we possibly can. Thank you ðŸ™


23rd December 2020

We are aware some patients have been contacting the Surgery with regards to having their COVID vaccines. 

The latest update confirms that arrangements are being made to begin administering the vaccine from mid-January.  Clinics will be held at Moor Park Health Centre on the ground floor (old Ashfield Surgery).

Eligible patients will be contacted via the national booking system and should not contact the Surgery.

17th July 2020

As you may be aware masks/face coverings will become mandatory in shops on Friday 24th July 2020.

As a result, we have been receiving an increasing number of enquiries for exemption letters.

As per Government guidelines, GP's are NOT required to provide such letters for patients. 

Please visit www.gov.uk for further advice regarding this, including those that are exempt. 

14th July 2020

Whilst we have remained open to all of our patients throughout the pandemic, we are still trying to keep the footfall of patients low to minimise risk to both patients and staff.

With this in mind, prescriptions can be requested online and via the telephone, so there is no need to visit the Surgery unless you are asked to do so.

We are still primarily treating patients either via telephone or video consultations, but if required, an appointment face to face can be arranged by the consulting Clinician.

We thank you for respecting and following our advice regarding visits to the Surgery and hope you all stay safe and well.

1st July 2020

Although lockdown restrictions are being slowly lifted, we are still being extremely careful in limiting the amount of patients we see on a face to face basis, whilst coronavirus is still a threat to everyone.  As a result, we are not quite back to normal just yet and we are primarily booking only telephone or video consultations.

 

We do still have a closed door policy, so we ask that you only attend the Surgery if you are asked to do so.  Face masks/covering must be worn when attending Surgery. 

 

Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

Stay Alert
