What you can and can’t do 

Follow national guidance – we urge all residents and businesses to follow national guidance. We know it is challenging, to follow the restrictions, the gradual easing of restrictions will allow us ease back to a more normal lifestyle.

Thank you – Thank you to all the NHS staff, Social Care workers and volunteers doing an amazing job in our area in such difficult circumstances.  

Vaccine Roll out – Please be patient and do not contact the GP surgeries. As the vaccine programme is rolled out the vaccination hub, in this case The Ridge Primary Care Network, will contact you.

They phone patients to make an appointment, if for some reason the call is missed, they write to you and you can book on the NHS website or use a free phone number. 

The good news is that they are making good progress with appointments.

Testing – Symptom-free testing is free nationally
