COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

Patients are asked not to contact the surgery regarding COVID-19 vaccinations. We will call you to book an appointment. We have started to call people who fall into these priority groups to book appointments for them.

It’s possible you’ll be asked to attend a GP practice which is not your usual one so you can have a vaccination. Your GP practice is part of a group of local GP practices looking after the healthcare of patients in the local area. The vaccinations will be delivered to one GP practice which will act as a hub to give the vaccinations to a range of local people, not just those registered as patients at this practice. By using one location it means we can use all our skilled staff in one location to provide the vaccination clinics.

You might have to wait to have a vaccine, as every dose is needed to protect those at highest risk. You will be called in as soon as there is enough vaccine available. Please don’t contact  us to seek a vaccine before then.

If you have not yet been approached about having the Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information: why you are being asked to wait. You can also find further information on the Covid-19 vaccine here.

Even after vaccination you must continue to abide by all the social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
