We understand that many patients have received letters from NHS England inviting them to book an appointment for their Covid-19 vaccination via the national NHS booking system at Mass Vaccination Hubs or community Pharmacies.
Local surgeries are not directly involved with the national NHS booking system; and cannot influence this process, change appointments or check where your appointment is booked.
If you are an eligible patient who would prefer to be vaccinated at your local vaccination service run by the practices in your local area, please wait for an appointment and THEY WILL CONTACT YOU. They know who eligible patients are and the order in which they are able to receive the vaccine. The only thing limiting them is vaccine delivery.
If you have booked an appointment through the national NHS Booking system at an alternative venue, unfortunately general practice staff will be unable to help you with any queries. If you do use the NHS booking system please ensure you make a note of the venue your vaccination will take place.
If you already have an appointment booked at a local surgery and have since received an NHS England letter, please do not worry your appointment is still booked and will go ahead as planned.
Finally, ALL Primary Care Networks are doing an amazing job in delivering vaccines. We would like to extend our thanks to all involved.
