Covid-19 vaccine

We will contact patients when the Covid-19 vaccine is available for them.                     Please DO NOT contact us but just keep rechecking this webpage. Due to the limited supply of the vaccine, the NHS will initially be targeting patients in order of the following Priority Groups – currently, Priority Groups 1& 2 are being targeted. Please read this leaflet to explain why you might need to wait: Covid-19 Vaccine: Why do I have to wait Leaflet.

Primary care COVID expectations for General Practice and COVID Vaccination Programme

Dear Patients,

As you will be aware, the COVID-19 rates of infection have increased to significant levels in our area.  At the same time, we need to maximise our work of vaccinating patients with the COVID-19 vaccine.

We have been advised to free up time with our team to help look after patients with emergencies and protect patients with the vaccine. If your problem is an emergency then please call 999

Your online form will be reviewed by a clinician and you will be contacted back. You will either be contacted by the surgery to ask you more questions or you will receive a  text/telephone call on what to do next.
