COVID-19 Vaccination Booster Programme

The Collingham Medical Centre will be supporting the Booster (3rd dose) COVID Vaccine Campaign.    Now we have Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) approval, we are getting ourselves ready to support the Newark & Collingham communities.

Eligible patients need a minimum of 6 months between their last COVID Vaccine and booster.   For our communities these will start to be due from mid-October.  

Once we have confirmation of vaccine delivery, we will contact eligible patients to invite.   There is no need to contact us.   

We aim to deliver a large part of this campaign at weekends in order not to disrupt your general practice services during the working week.

FREE Lateral Flow Test Devices are available from the Collingham Pharmacy - it is important to continue to test to protect you, your family and our community.  Follow national guidance to isolate on a positive test and attend a PCR testing Centre. 

Lateral Flow Testing offers reassurance that you are not carrying the virus, even if symptom free.   If you have symptoms, please book PCR test and isolate.

Private Services (Non-NHS Services)

Outside the scope of our NHS contract, we do support our patients with some private services. We do use the information stored in your medical record (with your consent) to undertake this, for example 

  • non_nhs_services3The administration of some travel vaccinations not available from the NHS
  • Medical examinations, ie HGV, employment or sports applications
  • Medical reports to insurance companies to support insurance policy applications/claims
  • Letters of support or letter of fitness to participate

These services are all non-NHS services and are chargeable.  The time the team need to invest in making this happen for you needs to be funded.  A note of the fees can be found on our website and in the waiting area of the Collingham Medical Centre.

If you have an appointment for a medical examinations and cancel, or DNA, within 24 hours of this appointment date/time, the appointment will still be chargeable and an invoice will be forwarded for payment.  A further appointment would be made, if required, once payment received
