Coronavirus Vaccinations

We are now booking appointments for COVID vaccinations for our patients following the guidance from NHS England of which cohorts we must prioritise first and we will contact you to arrange your appointment when it is your turn. Clinics will be held at our designated Thorntree site NOT at the Discovery Practice.

Patients will need to have 2 vaccinations to be protected and we will be contacting patients over the next few days to book their appointments.  

Unfortunately we are unable to offer vaccinations to housebound at this time due to the transportation of the vaccine we have been supplied. However, we hope to receive a vaccine that can be transported soon and we will be in touch once we receive further information regarding this.

We are not able to offer the vaccination to anyone else at this time but rest assured we will invite additional patient groups when we are informed we can start vaccinating additional in the groups.
