The Covid-19 vaccination programme has begun. When it is your turn to be vaccinated, the NHS will contact you. Please do not contact the NHS.
In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a few different health and care organisations including hospitals, GP practices, care homes and others are working together on the Covid-19 vaccination programme. This means when it is your turn to be vaccinated, this may not be at your GP practice. You will be told where to go for your appointment and how to book.
In line with expert guidance, the first priority for vaccination is care homes residents and staff, people over the age of 80 and frontline health and care workers.
We understand a lot of people want to be vaccinated and would like to reassure you this will happen. Please be patient and wait to be contacted.
For further information on why you are being asked to wait for your Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information on the GOV.UK website or this leaflet.

IT IS NOT OUR POLICY TO PROVIDE FACE MASK EXEMPTION LETTERS
From 24 July 2020, individuals will be required to wear a face mask in various public settings in accordance with recent government guidance, or face a fine of £100. The government website lists legitimate reasons for not wearing face masks, find out more at www.gov.uk.
As your GP practice, it is not our policy to issue letters of exemption to wear face masks. Government guidance suggests that there is no requirement for an individual to produce evidence of exemption.

GP ACCESS SCHEME
GP Access January - March 2020
Please be advised we no longer prescribe items for minor illness that you can buy or obtain from your local pharmacy (e.g. for hay fever) If you think you need an appointment for a minor illness we are asking you to visit your local pharmacy for advice and possibly treatment under the ‘pharmacy first’ scheme.
Don’t wait for a doctor’s appointment, go straight to your pharmacy.
HELPING YOU TO HELP YOURSELF
The NHS is under pressure from increasing demand, but you can help ease that pressure. Here are a few tips how…
|■ Please don’t ask for over the counter medicines on prescription for a minor illness|
■ Don’t just miss your GP appointment – tell them you’re not coming, preferably at
least 24 hours in advance
■Don’t just tick the box for repeat prescriptions - only order what you need
■A&E is for emergencies only - if it’s not an emergency, please try your local
Pharmacy, GP, Urgent Care Centre or call 111 for advice and out-of-hours GPs
