News as of 8th January 2021 - We are starting to get the COVID-19 vaccine sent to us in stages. The NHS is prioritising vaccinating those people who experts have agreed will benefit from it the most. It is not the decision of any member of staff in the surgery. We will let you know when it is your turn to book your vaccination. In the meantime you can get information about the COVID-19 Vaccination online at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination Thanks from all of us for your patience in this matter.
