We have no control over this process and have no access to vaccines, all vaccines will need to be booked via 119 or when you have been invited.

We as a practice and within our Primary Care Network will be supporting care homes and housebound patients and will be touch will those patients as soon as we have been advised of dates for vaccines.
Please do not call the surgery, we are unable to help. You will be contacted by NHS England when it is your turn.
Below is a list of those patients eligible.
