COVID-19 Pandemic and Vaccinations

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Montpelier Health Centre has worked hard to ensure we have remained open to patients and we want to reassure our patients that this continues through this current national lockdown.

We continue to offer services appropriately and safely according to patient needs. The triage model still applies so all requests for a GP appointment will be navigated by a Call Handler in the first instance. Patients can contact the surgery via telephone or by completing an online E-Consult form.

It remains the case that if we need to see a patient face to face we will invite those patients in for an appointment.

Please note that there may be some disruptions to the services offered at the surgery whilst clinical and non-clinical staff are sometimes deployed to help with the Covid vaccination clinics. We thank you for your patience and understanding at these times.

COVID Vaccinations

Commencing on Monday, January 11th 2021 Ashton Gate Stadium is now being used as one of the seven mass vaccination sites across England.

Commencing on Tuesday, January 19th 2021 we will begin vaccinating our own patients both on home visits to the housebound and within the surgery itself.

Please do not contact the Surgery to enquire about your vaccination!

The Surgery will contact you when it’s your turn to be vaccinated.

We have many vulnerable and at risk patients who have to come to the surgery for essential dressings, injections and appointments and therefore it is extremely important that we keep the risk of infection to these and other patients and our staff by limiting entry to the practice to those patients with appointments only.

Please do not try to come to the surgery to book an appointment, to sort out a prescription query or for any other non-appointment issue.

Please ring the surgery or use the E-consultation option.

It is essential to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.

  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with alcohol gel or soap and water
  • Stay at home where possible!
  • Stay 2 metres apart
  • Wear a mask! (Face coverings can help us protect each other and reduce the spread of the disease).
