COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

It is great news that one of the COVID-19 vaccines will be reaching us soon and we are working across the patch for the safe delivery of the vaccine. GPs will not be the only service delivering the vaccine but, like the flu vaccine, they will focus on the most vulnerable groups first. 

The NHS is now ready to deliver a vaccination programme for England so that those who need it most will be able to access vaccinations as soon as they are available.

A prioritisation list has been produced in order for the vaccine to be delivered to groups who will need it first. The NHS will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about location and date. We will contact you when it’s the right time to come forward, so please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine before then. Thank you

Changes to Repeat Prescriptions

Changes to the way your order repeat medication

Many patients have a 'repeat prescription' meaning that they can regularly receive certain medication without having to see their doctor each time. Some people order these repeat prescriptions themselves. Others choose to use a pharmacy or dispensing company to order medicines on their behalf. Depending on how you request your medicines, the way that it works for you may change from 1st August 2018.
