Covid - 19 Vaccinations   

We are progressing well with the vaccination programme at Burnham Health Centre which is being led by Dr Patrick Clarke and Practice Nurse Sarah Britton. We have started our second dose vaccinations for the original patients vaccinated in January and early February and as you approach week 11 post vaccination, you will be contacted by the surgery for your second dose. This will generally be by text if you have a mobile phone. We did approximately 2000 second doses last week and 1400 first doses for our patients in their 40s. Please contact the surgery if you have not heard from us and you were vaccinated in January – we can then arrange your next dose. A huge thanks goes to the volunteers led by Carol Linton for their on-going support.

Tips when being vaccinated – 

  • Turn up a maximum of 10 minutes before. If earlier, please wait in your car until 10 minutes before.
  • Marshalls will be there to guide you through the process
  • Wheelchairs etc are provided

Your health is important to us. We will do everything we can to look after your routine requirements. However in order to vaccinate our population, there may be longer waits than we would like. Please bear with us. We feel it is beneficial for us to offer vaccinations to our patients and this will mean you will get your vaccinations sooner.

All patients, visitors and children 5 and over MUST wear a face mask or face covering to appointments when entering the building.

Face masks will NOT be provided by the practice.

Organ Donation Update

Organ donation in England has changed to an opt out system. It's still for you to decide whether or not you want to become an organ donor. We will always ask your family to support your decision. So whatever you choose, it's really important that you let them know, There is more information available via the link below:
