Update on the COVID-19 vaccination programme: national vaccination letters
Posted on 28 Jan 2021
We are aware that some of our patients are starting to receive letters from the national vaccination booking system. The letters is labelled only from the NHS and invites you to book your vaccination appointment.
Please don’t worry, our service is not affected.
These letters are offering the opportunity to book an appointment at one of the larger vaccination centres, such as the Brighton Centre or a local pharmacy. You cannot book at our vaccination service through this system.
Our vaccination service at Pound Hill Surgery is working alongside these other services. You have a choice where you receive your vaccination – at our service, at a larger vaccination centre like the Brighton Centre or at a local pharmacy service.
Our team will contact eligible patients directly with an invitation to arrange an appointment at our vaccination service. Appointments for the larger vaccination centres and pharmacies are available through the national booking system set out in the letter – either online or by phone.
Once you have received an invitation, you can either follow the details in the letter to book at one of those services, or wait for your invitation from our team to book an appointment at our clinics instead.
We thank you for your support.
