- If you have had your 1st dose at the Mulberry Centre; you will be contacted by phone or text to book your 2nd. This should be within the 12 week time period. Please do not contact the surgery unless you are within a day or 2 of exceeding this limit.
- If you had your 1st dose carried out at a mass vaccination centre you will have your 2nd dose there also as booked. This cannot be carried out at the Mulberry Centre.
- If you have received a text to book your vaccination at the Mulberry Centre please do so. If you are unable to use this link; contact the surgery.
You may have received a letter inviting you to book a COVID vaccination appointment at Ashton Gate in Bristol and, if you prefer, you can still attend there for your vaccination. For everyone under 80, please be patient. You will be contacted when it is your turn. Please do not ring the surgery about COVID vaccinations as we are unable to tell you any more than this at present.
COVID-19 PANDEMIC – WEARING OF FACE COVERING
In accordance with the law and with the aim of protecting both our patients and staff during the current pandemic, before entering the surgery at Love Lane and Berrow Health Campus, you must wear a face covering.
Following clinical guidance, anyone wishing to come into either Burnham or Berrow Medical Centre wearing a face shield is required to wear a face covering underneath. This is because a face shield alone does not provide adequate protection for you or others around you.
Please use the intercom outside the front door if you do not have a face covering so that you can speak to our Reception Staff.
A face covering is something which safely covers the nose and mouth.
You can buy reusable or single-use face coverings.
You may also use a scarf, bandana, religious garment or hand-made cloth covering but these must securely fit round the side of the face.
Face coverings are largely intended to protect others, not the wearer, against the spread of infection because they cover the nose and mouth, which are the main confirmed sources of transmission of virus that causes coronavirus infection (COVID-19).
We are mindful and respectful of those who cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability and that some people are less able to wear face coverings, the reasons for this may not be visible to others.
If you are unable to wear a face covering, please do not enter either building.
Instead, please to speak to our Reception Team via the intercom outside the front door who will discuss how we can help you.
If you are attending either surgery for a booked appointment, you will be asked to return to your car (or wait outside if you are on foot). The consulting Clinician will come out to speak with you and discuss how we can help you.
Thank you for your understanding.
Dr. Stephen Miell and Dr. David Boorman
