Covid-19 Vaccination - why do I have to wait?

Please do not contact the practice to ask about COVID-19 vaccination. You will be contacted when you are eligible.


We have been asked by NHS England and NHS Improvement to start delivering the COVID-19 vaccination programme in December. This will be done by working together with other local GP practices (called a Primary Care Network) to provide the vaccines, rather doing vaccinations here at the practice. To enable everyone to get the vaccine in a safe and controlled way, priority groups have been agreed, so the vaccine can be delivered to people who need it first. We will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about where to go and when.  


Please don’t contact the practice to ask for a vaccine before then


All Covid-19 Information can be found on the support page. Please click here for more!

COVID 19 Support

Solihull Council, in partnership with Carers Trust Solihull, have set up an emergency fund to support family carers struggling during the Covid-19 crisis.  

The fund, which is being administered by the Carers Trust Solihull, is for unpaid/family carers who are at the point of crisis and need help with essentials when no other solutions are available.  The fund will be capped at £250 per carer and may also be accessed by young carers supporting family members who require items such as learning resources or access to internet-based support groups.
