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.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination status
From 17 May, patients can access their COVID-19 vaccination status though the NHS App. Patients are being advised by Gov.uk that they do not need to contact their GP surgery about their COVID-19 vaccination status.

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.

Training Practice

Collingham Medical Centre is an accredited training practice by the East Midlands Healthcare Workforce Deanery for the training of General Practice Specialty Registrars. Specialty Registrars are fully experienced in hospital medicine but require further general practice experience before entry into practice independently.

We also teach undergraduate students from the University of Nottingham Medical School.  

Any fellow health care professional may also be invited to sit in with one of the practice doctors or nurses. If either applies to your consultation you will be informed beforehand. Please exercise your right to ask them to withdraw if you would prefer.  

We occasionally wish to video consultations but only with the patient’s consent. Patients will be informed of this possibility when making an appointment.
