Welcome to Southwell Medical Centre
Please ensure you are wearing a face mask or covering when entering the surgery. Please only attend the surgery if you are collecting a prescription or have a face to face appointment. For all other enquiries please call us on 01636 813561
When it is your turn to be vaccinated, the NHS will contact you. Please do not contact the surgery.
As the department of Health rollout the Covid vaccination Programme, letters have been sent to all patients over 50 years old to book their Covid Vaccines.
The link for Nottinghamshire sites is https://www.swiftqueue.co.uk/nottinghamc19vpatient.php
Please note this only works for the list aged cohort. The appointments are available based on vaccine availability so slots get released on an ad hoc basis, if the site you want doesn’t show availability try again later.
Booking is quick and easy via computer or smartphone but we recognise some need support booking so patients can also book by calling the Booking Line on 0115 883 4640 between 09:00-17:00 Monday to Sunday.
The Booking Line is currently fielding significant call volumes, so waiting times can be long, online booking is therefore recommended wherever possible.
Clinically Extremely Vulnerable - https://www.swiftqueue.co.uk/nottinghamc19v-clinv.php
Clinically vulnerable patients must take their Invitation to book or shielding letter to the appointment or they will be turned away at the vaccination site.

The doctors and staff seek to provide the highest level of care for all patients and also wish to develop, through Southwell Patient Participation Group (SPPG),
a partnership between our patients and the professionals involved in your care.
As a Training Practice we often have trainee GPs working with us. They are fully qualified Drs who are now training with us to specialise as a GP.
Our current trainees are Dr K Long, Dr S Ali, Dr J Liu and Dr J Mabbott.
All our patients have a named allocated GP (known as "usual GP" here at SMC).
You can ask any member of staff if you want the name of your allocated GP.
In order to maintain the highest possible standards of medicines safety, we require at least 2 full working days to fulfil any requests for repeat medication.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause, but hope that patients will understand that the longer time is needed to ensure patient safety at all times.
Please be aware that ALL telephone calls IN and OUT of this practice are now recorded for patient and staff safety.
Recordings are securely stored for five years.
