4th Dose Covid Booster Clinic

We will be running a 4th dose Covid Booster clinic on Wednesday 11th May 2022 (MRNA Moderna Vaccine). 

All patients aged 65 and older are eligible for this vaccine, however they must be either 4 months post 3rd booster or 4 months recovery from the Covid 19 illness. 

If you fall into the above criteria and would like your 4th dose of Covid Booster vaccine, please call us on 01 8203303 to make your appointment. 

We will add on additional clinics should there be suitable demand for this booster vaccine.

Practice Update 22/03/2022

New patients – we are currently unable to accept registration of new patients to this practice. We will continue to review our patient numbers regularly in the hope that this is a temporary measure and will update any change on this website.

Mask Wearing – Public Health advise the continuation of mask wearing in healthcare settings in line with evolving national guidance. It will remain the policy of this practice that patients entering this surgery must wear a mask.

Practice Update 4th Jan 2022

Firstly, a very Happy and Healthy New Year to all our patients and their families. Thank you from all at The Parks for your thoughtfulness and generosity shown to us over Christmas. It was greatly appreciated by us all.

Unfortunately due to Covid Staff Shortages, our normal routine clinical services will be impacted and disrupted the week of Tuesday 4th January 2022.

We will, as always, do our level best to continue to look after those who need urgent medical attention and ask for your understanding should we have to reschedule your routine appointment.

We expect Tuesday 4th January to be our busiest day, and our phone lines to be exceptionally busy once again.

Please bear with us, if you have received a text to cancel your appointment, we will be in touch as soon as we can to reschedule.
