COVID-19 Vaccination Programme Update as of 4 February 2021

Our COVID-19 vaccination programme continues to roll-out smoothly. As of today all those aged 70 and above, and all those who have been assessed as being clinically extremely vulnerable should have received an invitation, either by text or letter, to book their COVID-19 vaccination. If you fall into one of these categories and have not yet received an invitation please contact the Practice and we will book you an appointment (please also check with our Patient Advisors that we have your correct mobile phone number on record).

If we have a mobile phone number on record for you, then this is our preferred method of advising you that you are now able to book a COVID-19 vaccination. You will receive a text message from ‘GPSurgery’ with wording similar to the following:

  • Dear Mr Smith, we are pleased to let you know that you are now invited to book your COVID-19 vaccination. Please click the link to book your vaccination time: (There will then be a link to click on which will take you into a very simple booking system).

Please, where possible, book your appointment via the text message rather than ringing the Practice. If we do not have a mobile phone on record, then we will write to you to advise you to contact us to make your appointment. Also, as a reminder, all vaccinations will take place at our local hub:
