The COVID-19 Vaccination programme is well underway across the whole of the UK.
The Community vaccine is being administered at hubs for a network of GP practices. For our patients, the vaccine is being administered at the Dearne Valley Leisure Centre.
The vaccine is given by appointment only. These are NOT drop-in clinics.
To receive the vaccine you will be contacted by the GP practice.
The Practice has a strict protocol to follow which is set by NHS England and the rules are being followed by all vaccine centres up and down the country. Patients are being called in a pre-set order of priority, further details can be found on the government website.
You may find it helpful to read more information about the Doncaster vaccination programme rollout and FAQs on the NHS Doncaster CCG website: https://www.doncasterccg.nhs.uk/your-care/coronavirus-latest-news-and-information/covid-19-vaccine/
Thank you all for your patience and understanding whilst our staff work hard to ensure the vaccination programme rollout is a success across the Doncaster South Primary Care Network.
COVID-19 VACCINE SCAM ALERT - If you receive a message from, what looks like, the NHS, but it is asking for your bank details or requests payment to book a COVID vaccine – THIS IS A SCAM. When you are eligible for your vaccine you will be contacted directly by your GP Practice for your FREE COVID vaccine appointment.
Your GP practice is open and if you need to see your GP, please ring us on 01302 742503 (Tickhill Surgery) or 01302 986666 (Colliery Surgery), we are still working from a triage system, however, face-to-face appointments ARE available where clinically indicated.
You can also call NHS 111.
If you are waiting for a check-up, please be assured that we will be in touch.
Appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone. If you are coming into the surgery for a face-to-face appointment, please remember to wear a face covering and abide by social distancing measures. Measures are in place to keep you safe from infection during your visit to the surgery.
From Monday (July 19th) some of the COVID-19 restrictions will be eased as England moves to the next stage of the government’s roadmap.
As exciting as it may be to think about a life without restrictions, it is important to recognise that the virus is circulating in very high numbers in our community.
We have a number of vulnerable and unvaccinated patients and intend to continue with the same approach to face mask use in the health centre.
We request that all visitors and staff in the health centre continue to wear a face mask unless medically exempt. This is in line with Public Health England guidance for hospitals and primary care settings. Thank you.
WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED
When we are closed, you can still contact the surgery and you will be redirected to the Out Of Hours GP Service. If you are not connected, it will be due to the lines being busy so please try again until you are connected to the call handler.
The Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice would like to invite you to join DoctorLink.
We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments on line.
Registration is simple and you can register here https://app.doctorlink.com/tickhill&collierymedicalpractice/register
For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.
The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.
The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self-care.
If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at The Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice, you simply click on the “book an appointment” button and book your appointment directly.
If no appointments are available, you will see a “request an appointment” button, please click this.
Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
Thank you for visiting the website of the Tickhill and Colliery Medical Practice. This website is intended as a source of information for patients.
We are a semi rural practice operating from two surgeries, 3 miles apart, both of which are fully equipped and patients attend one or the other surgery. The majority, 6000 patients are registered at Tickhill and approximately 3200 from Bircotes / Harworth and the surrounding villages.
Tickhill is a prosperous semi rural community with some strong local farming roots. Bircotes and Harworth are mining villages, with some areas of deprivation following the closure of the local Colliery and other small manufacturing sites.
The practice has a GMS contract and is a high achiever of QOF points.
The practice operates a ZERO tolerance policy, our staff are here to help and not to be abused this will NOT under any circumstances be accepted and appropriate action would be considered and if necessary implemented.
