Vaccinations for under 50s
 
We are not offering Covid-19 vaccinations to those under the age of 50. Patients will need to book their vaccination online or by calling 119.
 
You will need to check online that vaccines are being offered for your specific age, and this is updated on a regular basis.
 
If you are under 50 but in another eligible group, such as an unpaid carer or with a long-term condition, please call the practice to arrange your vaccination.
 
More details on who is eligible and how to book: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
 

Patients cannot choose which Covid-19 vaccination to have. However, if you are pregnant or under 30 years old and are in an eligible cohort, you will need to have a Pfizer vaccination. Please call the surgery so we can arrange an appointment.

The surgery is unable to provide evidence for patients wishing to prove their vaccination status in order to travel.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
