Welcome to Tinkers Lane Surgery

Update on booking your Covid Booster Jab – 14th January 2022:

To book a booster vaccination or to have your first or second vaccine include booking an appointment at a community pharmacy or vaccination clinic using the online National Booking Service or by calling 119.  Appointments are available from a wide range of locations, including community pharmacies, large vaccination centres and some GP-led venues.   There are large vaccine centres in the region at Bath Racecourse and Salisbury City Hall, as well as the Steam Museum in Swindon.

Tell the NHS about coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you’ve had abroad:

This service enables you to book an appointment to show evidence for any coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you’ve had outside of England. This is so the NHS can securely update your vaccination record. Please click on the link and follow the instructions:   Tell the NHS about coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you’ve had abroad – NHS (www.nhs.uk) 

Who can use this service:

  • if you are aged 18 years old or over
  • have an NHS number
  • have received one of these MHRA-approved vaccines outside of England – Oxford/AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria), Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty), Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) or Moderna (Spikevax)

Important Patient Information:


For a number of years, we have provided a ‘Same Day Urgent’ Triage service 5 full days a week for the benefit of our patients offering an average of 70 triage appointments per day not including the myriad of routine pre-booked daily appointments with our various clinical teams.  However, since the end of lockdown in July, the volume of demand has significantly increased, resulting in the whole days’ triage appointments being regularly filled before 9:00am.  In order to help us to prioritise and be able to treat genuine ‘same day urgent’ patients, especially as we are going into the Winter which traditionally greatly increases demand, it is requested that patients who have ongoing ailments that have continued for more than 2 weeks, to book a routine appointment with a clinician. This will leave a greater number of ‘same day urgent’ triage appointments for patients with relatively new ailments that they have had for less than 2 weeks.  The current waiting time for a routine appointment is between one and two weeks depending on if you wish to see a specific clinician or the next available one.


Please be aware of the myriad of different services that Tinkers Lane Surgery now offers covering the following clinical professionals: GPs, Physician Associates (PAs), Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs), Practice Nurses, Health Care Assistants (HCAs), Clinical Pharmacists, First Contact Physiotherapists (FCPs), Midwives and Community Nurses.  For further details about how these different clinicians can help you and what clinical specialisms they cover, please click on the ‘PRACTICE STAFF’ tab at the top of this page.

Please see the following Info-graphic providing a snapshot of our activity as a Practice over the month of December 2021 highlighting the services, support and treatment carried out by us on behalf of our patients:
