COVID-19 VACCINATIONS – PATIENT INFORMATION
We are pleased to advise that our practice is participating in the national Covid vaccination programme.
We are working with 8 other local practices in our Primary Care Network (called "Brompton Health") to get our patients vaccinated as quickly and safely as possible. The first lot of Covid vaccine was delivered the week commencing 4th January 2021.
We are following detailed National Health Service guidance.
