Face Mask Exemption 

You do not need a letter from your GP. You simply need to declare your exemption when asked. We are sorry, but we will not provide any letters of exemption for the wearing of face coverings.

Vaccination Cohorts 10 - 12

Please note that the practice will not be running vaccination clinics for people aged 18 – 49 when they become eligible. We have focused on delivering vaccination services for people in the first 1-9 priority groups. There are a wide range of alternative local options for people who are due to be vaccinated next that can be accessed by using the national booking service.

You will be contacted by the NHS when it is your turn and invited to book an appointment via the national booking service or by phoning 119. You will be given the option of attending a local pharmacy, participating GP-led community location, or large vaccination centre. It’s extremely important that when you get your invitation you take up the offer of having the vaccine, as you will be protecting yourself and friends and family around you. 

You should not have to wait any longer for your vaccine and if you are 50 years old or older, or are in another eligible group and haven’t had your vaccine yet, it’s important you are vaccinated as soon as possible. You can access an appointment through the practice, from the national booking service or by phoning 119. If you have already had one dose of the vaccine, you will be able to get your second dose using the same service as your first.
