Welcome to Derby Road Health Centre
In line with the Government’s announcement, the NHS is aiming to offer every adult the chance to book a COVID-19 booster vaccine.
If you are eligible for your booster vaccination, please contact the practice. Alternatively you can visit nhs.uk/covid-vaccine or call 119 to arrange your appointment.
If you need to register yourself or someone you care for as housebound to make sure they receive their booster jab.

A MESSAGE FOR ALL PATIENTS
ACCESSING YOUR GP SERVICES
- Your NHS services have a range of measures in place to keep you safe from COVID- 19 including regular cleaning of patient areas and social distancing. Please ensure you wear a face covering to your appointment.
- Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients where there is a clinical need. You will be asked to first discuss your conditions over the phone or online with a member of the healthcare team to assess what would be most appropriate for you and which practice member would best provide it.
- We are also offering telephone consultations, these can be convenient and flexible ways to receive healthcare. Where patients need to be seen by a health professional face-to-face, this will be arranged. If you have a preference about how to access care you can discuss it with your practice.
- General practice continues to offer care based on clinical need.
- General practice continues to offer cervical smears and childhood immunisations.
