Covid-19 Vaccination & Urgent Care

Please do not contact your GP for a COVID-19 vaccine

The first phase of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme has started. When it is the right time you will receive an invitation to come forward. For most people this will be a letter, either from your GP or the national NHS. This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number. Please do not contact the NHS to get an appointment until you get this letter. Information on the vaccine is available here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/

Urgent Care Update

“The NHS in London is very busy due to rising coronavirus infection rates, but we’ll help you get urgent care when you need it.

GPs are providing more appointments, including evenings and weekends, for patients with urgent health needs. Contact your practice, to arrange same-day appointments if you need urgent care.

You can also contact 111, day or night, for other urgent health advice – including if you have concerns about your Covid-19 symptoms.

Please remember that 999 and A&E are for emergencies.”
