You will have heard much talk in the media about covid vaccinations. While we have at this stage very little information to share, local GP practices have agreed to be a part of delivering this vital service.
Once we receive information about vaccine delivery, these vaccines will be delivered strictly according to government guidance. They will be delivered to the most at risk patients first and then through the different eligible cohorts as vaccines are available. We will contact patients by text or letter to invite them for a vaccination as they become eligible and vaccines are available.
At this stage please do not contact us regarding the covid vaccination programme, we have no further information than that provided above and are extremely busy with all the usual winter illnesses and extended Flu vaccination programme.
The NHS will get in touch when it's your turn to be vaccinated.

This leaflet is for patients with suspected coronavirus who have not been admitted to hospital and will be isolating at home.
The way people access their GP practice has changed to ensure patients get the best possible care safely and quickly. We only want people to attend the practice when they need to, in order to keep patients and staff safe from coronavirus.

COVID-19 ADVICE ON FACE COVERING
It is important that patients report adverse reactions and events in relation the medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency. This will be key in the case of the deployment of covid-19 vaccinations. However, any reaction to any medicine that has been used for patients with covid-19 should be reported. There is also a seperate reporting tool for non-covid adverse reactions.
