Please do not contact your GP for a COVID-19 vaccine

The first phase of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme has started. When it is the right time you will receive an invitation to come forward. For most people this will be a letter, either from your GP or the national NHS.

This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number. Please do not contact the NHS to get an appointment until you get this letter. Information on the vaccine is available on here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/

GP appointments are still available

Although we’re delivering services a little differently at the moment, appointments are still available. You might find that you have an appointment over the telephone or online (known as an eConsult) please see below and this might be with someone different than you normally see.

If you need medical help, please call your local GP practice or go online as you normally would, we just ask that you do not come to the surgery in person.
