5th January 2021: Lockdown

The surgery is still open during lockdown. Please call us if you need medical attention. Please follow government advice and stay at home to stop the spread of Covid-19.

COVID-19 Vaccines

We are excited that the first batches of the Pfizer vaccine are becoming available for our patients. This is being done in a phased manner from our local hospitals and community health centres (not from Elm Lodge Surgery). We will contact you as soon as we can offer you an appointment for the vaccine. The order in which patient groups are invited for the vaccine is set nationally, we are not able to make exceptions but we are doing everything we can to make sure as many of our patients are offered the vaccine as soon as is possible.

Health and Social Care Workers

If you are a health or social care worker and would like to have a COVID-19 vaccine please email the surgery (SOUCCG.elmlodge@nhs.net) including your name, date of birth, job title and employer. We will contact you as soon as we have appointments available for the vaccine.

Please wear a face covering

Please wear a face covering if you are coming into the surgery. This applies to all our patients aged 11 and over unless you have a mask exemption.

Repeat prescriptions

We accept repeat prescription requests through the online app, by email, via your pharmacy or by dropping a written note into the surgery. Please do not call the surgery to request a repeat prescription.

World antimicrobial awareness week

World antimicrobial awareness week is from Wednesday 18th November to Tuesday 24th November. Without effective antibiotics many routine treatments will become increasingly dangerous. Elm Lodge Surgery recognizes the important role that general practice and our patients play in slowing resistance by reducing the unnecessary use of antibiotics.
