COVID-19 Information

Covid-19 Vaccinations

The practice is working with our neighbouring practices to provide a Vaccination Hub for local patients.  This is currently at Wincanton Community Hospital.

Patients will be contacted when their vaccine is due, either when their cohort becomes eligible for their first vaccination or about 10 weeks after your first dose for your second dose.

Invitations are now being sent by text via the Accubook service.  If you receive a text from Millbrook Surgery, please follow the instructions and book your appointment as Millbrook are co-ordinating the invitations.  If you have not heard from us when you think you are eligible, or 10 weeks after your first vaccine please contact us.

COVID-19 Precautions

The practice operates from a small building where social distancing is very difficult to maintain.  Vulnerable patients are continuing to attend the practice for face to face care, and it is therefore important that we minimise the risk to patients and staff to ensure the practice continues to operate safely.

Initial consultations with our Clinical Team will be conducted by telephone or video.  When making a request, it can be helpful to provide a photograph to help the clinician.  In discussing your care, if the clinician feels it is necessary and appropriate to see you in person, they will arrange this with you.  Face to face (or in person) appointments with a GP or ANP are not booked directly by our Reception Team at present.

When attending the practice we ask you to co-operate with us to keep everyone safe:

  • wear a mask when in the building.  A surgical mask will be provided on entry if you do not have one.
  • arrive on time for your appointment to keep waiting to a minimum
  • let us know you have arrived using the intercom
  • wait outside or in your car after letting us know you are here
  • if you need to book a follow up appointment, please call us or use AskMyGP rather than book at the Reception Desk.

We know that other shops and businesses have reopened, but each premises has to consider what is safe in its own environment.  In our considered view, the building is too small and the risk to staff and vulnerable patients too great at this time to reopen fully at the present time.
