Coronavirus Vaccinations

We are working in our Primary Care Network (PCN) to deliver COVID vaccinations to our patients. Our PCN consists of five practices, which includes Abington Park Surgery.

 

We will be contacting ALL eligible patients following the guidance given to us by NHS England.  We will contact you as soon as we can offer you an appointment. 

 

Please be aware we can only offer clinics as and when we receive delivery of the vaccine, this is not a quick process and will take many months to vaccinate but we will work hard to ensure we can deliver the vaccine as quickly as possible.

  • a high temperature above 37.8
  • a new, continuous cough within the last 7 days

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
