Across the country, we are moving to the next phase of the COVID-19 vaccination programme after reaching the target to offer all those in phase 1 a vaccination. 

From this week, people aged 45 and over (Group 10) are now eligible to receive their Covid vaccination and will be invited to book an appointment. Appointments can be booked through the NHS booking service: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ 

Alternatively you can wait to receive your invite to our local vaccination service at Brighton Racecourse. Please do not call your GP.  

If anyone in the first nine priority cohorts is yet to have their first vaccination we encourage them to arrange their appointment immediately through the NHS booking service or by calling 119.

Update on the COVID-19 vaccination programme: national vaccination letters

We are aware that some of our patients are starting to receive letters from the national vaccination booking system. The letters is labelled only from the NHS and invites you to book your vaccination appointment.

Please don’t worry, our service is not affected.

These letters are offering the opportunity to book an appointment at one of the larger vaccination centres, such as the Brighton Centre or a local pharmacy. You cannot book at our vaccination service through this system.

Our vaccination service at Brighton Racecourse is working alongside these other services. You have a choice where you receive your vaccination – at our service, at a larger vaccination centre like the Brighton Centre or at a local pharmacy service.

Our partner HERE will contact you directly to arrange an appointment at our vaccination service. Appointments for the larger vaccination centres and pharmacies are available through the national booking system set out in the letter – either online or by phone.

You can either follow the details in the letter to book at one of those services, or we will be contacting you in the next two weeks to arrange an appointment in our local service.

We thank you for your support.

Repeat Prescriptions should be ordered via email, Patient Access or

NHS App. We are not able to take requests over the telephone without prior approval from the Doctor.
