COVID Boosters – an update on provision

17/12/2021 – Update

Following the announcement on 12 December by the Prime Minister, GP practices have been asked to prioritise workload around providing Covid vaccination boosters.

We have now sent out invitations via SMS to all eligible patients for whom we have a mobile number registered in their clinical record.

If you haven’t received the text message please ensure we have your up to date number by supplying it here

If you do not have a mobile phone, you can also book into one of the National Booking Centres via the NHS website here or calling 119. Due to time constraints, the need to staff clinics, and also to try to maintain the best levels of staffing we can at the surgery, we will not have the capacity to phone you individually.

Please act now and respond to your text!

Please also be aware that if you have a routine appointment booked in the next two weeks there is a small chance that this will be either rescheduled, reallocated to a different clinician, or at the worst case cancelled. This is as we try to follow guidance from NHS England and the Government.
