BOOST DAY is this Thursday 2nd December and is a day where you’ll see a mass media campaign takeover promoting the uptake of vaccines ahead of the festive season and there are a range of resources to support this on the Campaign Resource Centre (CRC). BOOST DAY will drive mass awareness and momentum around the importance of boosting your immunity this winter.

Messaging encourages those eligible to book their vaccines as soon as possible so we can all enjoy the festivities safely with our loved ones. This includes both flu and COVID-19 boosters, the evergreen offer for anyone still to get their 1st and 2nd doses of COVID-19 vaccine and second doses for 16-17-year olds. We welcome you all to get involved and use the BOOST DAY materials to make this day as big a success as possible.


The GP’s at The Haven seek to encourage every eligible patient to have their free flu jab this year. Perhaps you are delaying booking an appointment until more is known about the Covid-19 booster programme, or you are hesitant because there were very few cases of flu last year and you feel fit and well at the moment? You may be waiting for more information from the government or from other reputable sources? In any case, our sincere advice to our patients ,is that you should pre-book your flu vaccination appointment as soon as possible.

Our receptionists are waiting to hear from you.

Making an Appointment

Please call in or telephone 01273 555999 to make an appointment. You will usually be seen on the day you request. Babies and children are always seen on the same day.  Currently all appointments are via telephone or video consultation.  If you wish to see the Doctor Face to Face please let the Reception Team know when you call.  

You can make an appointment with any one of the doctors by:

  • Calling into Reception
  • Contacting us by telephone
  • Booking Online via Patient Access or the NHS App 

(You must register in person with the surgery before using Patient Access for the first time. Find out more HERE.) or have the NHS App set up. 

The Practice philosophy is that we like to take time when seeing our patients. For this reason you may experience delays during some surgeries. The receptionists will advise you of any such extended waiting time.

Telephone Advice

If you feel an appointment unnecessary but would like some advice, please ring and ask to speak to the doctor or nurse who will call you back when they are free (usually at the end of the surgery).

Do not forget to leave your correct contact details. 


If you cannot keep your appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. If you have the NHS App or Patient Access you can cancel your appointment online.  If we are closed you can also email us on
