Second Dose Covid Vaccinations
We will be starting our second dose vaccination clinics from 31st March (11 weeks after 1st dose as advised by Public Health).
Patients will be contacted by telephone and as previously we will be booking patients in age order, starting with the patients aged 80+.
Please assist us by not contacting the surgery to enquire about your appointment.
Covid Vaccination Passport
There has been information in the news advising people that there is an App available to download to obtain their Covid status as patients may need this evidence to travel etc.
Unfortunately this is only available in England
Any person needing evidence of their Covid status must ring 119 where they may be able to supply you with a paper copy. As a Practice we cannot supply evidence in any form i.e. letter, copy of immunisation status (this will not show your Covid vaccination)
We now have a surgery app
We now have an app that you can download to your smartphone or tablet for free.
My Surgery App was developed to help you access our service as quickly as possible, with news updates, access to online services for medication orders, health resources, video guides, and even lets you manage your own health. So download our app today following the links below to download to your preferred device.
Are you suffering with your Mental Health?
Did you know you can pre-book an appointment with a Mental Health Nurse without needing to speak to a GP.
Please call Reception to book an appointment.
Appointments for the Mental Health Nurse can be booked any time of day, so there is no need to call at 8am.
Covid-19 Vaccination Information
To date Cardiff and Vale Healthboard have delivered 158,753 vaccines in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan which is a third of our total adult population. 24,001 of these vaccines are second doses.
For people in priority group 6 (16-64 with underlying health conditions and unpaid carers) the Health Board has begun inviting these people to attend the local Mass Vaccination Centre. These appointments are automatically scheduled and you will receive a letter in the post.
There is no need to call to enquire as you will automatically receive an appointment.
Unpaid carers are currently being invited to a Mass Vaccination Centre. The Healthboard have now launched an online form for people to complete if they feel they fall under this cohort. Once the form is completed you will be offered an appointment at an MVC or a community pharmacy.
If you need help completing the form you can call 01446 729592

We are taking the steps below to ensure that Waterfront Medical Centre can remain open.
If infected patients attend the surgery it could result in a temporary closure whilst staff and Doctors are forced to self-isolate and the surgery will need to be deep cleaned.
Please help us to help all of our patients
The latest advice is to self-isolate for 10 days if you have a new continuous cough or high temperature.
If you live with other people, the entire household should stay at home for 10 days from the day the first person gets 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.
If you are worried about symptoms of Coronavirus you should use the NHS Direct Wales online symptom checker at www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk/COVID19
You should only call 111 if the symptom checker advises you to.
Please do not attend your GP surgery, community pharmacy or A&E department if you have any symptoms of Novel Coronavirus to stop the spread of infection.
You can help stop the spread of Novel Coronavirus by ensuring you practice good hygiene. Cough and sneeze into a tissue, bin it and immediately wash your hands with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds.
For up to date advice please visit phw.nhs.wales/coronavirus
Please contact us by telephone if you have any queries – DO NOT attend the Surgery. Only ring for advice if absolutely necessary and please be patient with our staff who are trying to help.
We need to ensure that only urgent cases attend the surgery. If the matter can wait a few weeks whilst this issue settles then please wait.
We are constantly reviewing the situation and this advice may change so please check our website for up to date information.
