If you have received a letter from the national booking system about a vaccination appointment and have any questions about this, please contact the number on the letter. The practice does not have any information on the centres and is not able to book appointments for patients at these venues.
If you would prefer to have your appointment at our local service, you do not need to do anything – we will contact you as soon as an appointment is available.

We can confirm that NHS England is writing to patients to invite you to attend for a COVID-19 Vaccination at one of the vaccination centers in Nottingham, Mansfield or Newark.

However, please be assured that if you would prefer to attend local sites for your vaccine please wait for us to contact you.

Informal Carers
We are seeing an increase in requests regarding vaccinations for informal carers. The JVCI (Joint Vaccination Committee on Immunisations) has advised that patients must wait to be called forward when we reach their age group. This applies to unregistered carers – ie: looking after someone you live with, a neighbor, etc.

We are asking patients to please NOT contact the surgery regarding COVID-19 Vaccinations.

We are experiencing a surge in calls about the vaccination.

Vaccinations will be delivered in phases – initially in Bassetlaw and as soon as we are able to invite you to be vaccinated, you will be contacted. Please help to free up our phone lines for patients to call us with urgent queries.

If you are calling for an up to date shielding letter, these will be sent out to you from a central national service. However, your shielding letter from last year will still be valid.
