Coronavirus Vaccinations:

Over the next few weeks, we will be commencing the process of offering patient's over the age of 80 their first coronavirus vaccination. Those who are housebound will be vaccinated by our district and practice nursing teams in due course. 

We have strict criteria to follow regarding who we offer the vaccine to, and at the moment, we will only be able to offer it to those over the age of 80, in line with national guidance.

We ask that you are patient with us while we get the vaccination programme up and running. To help up, please DO NOT contact the surgery requesting an appointment for vaccination. We will contact you.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this busy time. We look forward to getting our way out of the trials of the past 12 months!
