The trial is open to people aged 65 or over, or aged 50–64 with an underlying health condition.

Trial Information poster
We wish to inform you that we have now moved to an entirely telephone triage system at Whiteacres Medical Centre. If you have symptoms consistent with coronavirus -a new persistent cough OR a fever, you should remain at home, self-isolate for 14 days and self-care. You should contact 111 if your symptoms worsen. You should NOT ring the surgery.
For any health issue you feel needs medical attention, please ring 01684 577029 and you will be offered a telephone call with a clinician in the first instance. We encourage you to cancel any non-essential/non urgent appointments that you already have made to help support the national effort and maintain our ability to provide care to you.
