Covid Vaccination Updates

Please be aware that we are now contacting our patients to offer them the COVID-19 vaccine. Our patients do not need to contact us regarding these appointments as every patient in each priory cohort will be called. Please ensure your contact details are up to date. You can update us on our webform here.

We do understand that quite a large amount of people wish to be vaccinated and we would like to reassure you this will happen. Please be patient and wait to be contacted. For further information on why you are being asked to wait for your Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information on the GOV.UK website or this leaflet.
