    Latest Covid update

    20210203 Cases of COVID
    20210129 COVID UPDATE
    20210118 Update from Elm Tree Surgery NEWS 2 Jan
    Our surgery have been working alongside other practices in their group to roll out the vaccine in clinics being held at the Steam Museum in Swindon (next to the Outlet Centre) The venue is large enough to enable over 1000 people to be vaccinated each day which means the roll out speed is increased for everyone. There are no other local vaccination clinics being held in Swindon and no surgery, including Elm Tree Surgery, will be allocated supplies of vaccines for use only in their surgery. Individual practices will have access to limited supplies of the vaccine for those patients on the eligible lists who are truly housebound.
    The practice is working through the lists of patients allocated in accordance with the government guidance for the first phase priority groups. All patients aged over 80 will have been invited for their Covid vaccines by 19th January 2021. As and when you are eligible for a vaccination appointment, the surgery will be in contact by phone or text. Please do not contact the surgery as everyone is listed and you will be contacted in due course.
    The surgery continues to contribute a doctor or nurse and an administrator to every clinic held at Steam, currently for three whole days a week, including Saturdays.

  • Brown bin collection - an update

    Brown bin collection - an update


    Having progressed the current situation with VWHDC yesterday, it appears that there is unlikely to be a collection this coming Monday [15th inst.].   We understand that the reason is staff shortages due to the impact of the Covid-pandemic, and while we have some sympathy for their predicament we have nevertheless suggested that the district council consider a reduction in the annual fee by way of a goodwill gesture.   We probably will not succeed, but it does no harm to try!
