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.

The NHS Friends & Family Test

We want you to have the best possible experience of care.  The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service.  It is based on one simple question:

"How likely are you to recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care of treatment?"

Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your expeirence - what you like and what you think we could improve.  Ultimately, you're helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.

If you'd prefer to give your comments anonymously, then please do so.  If you do leave your contact details then we might get in touch, to talk to you about your feedback so we can better understand your views.

If you would like to leave feedback please pick up a card in surgery or click here.
