Alternatively you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine, the letter may to take up to 5 days to reach you.

We continue to deliver our Covid Vaccination Programme with several other local practices from Hinckley Leisure Centre in Argents Mead, Hinckley. Appointments will be offered at  Hinckley Leisure Centre and at Burbage Surgery on both on weekdays and weekends. Patients attending for vaccination at Hinckley Leisure Centre will not be required to pay parking charges at the Leisure Centre Car Park.

 Second doses commenced on 1st April 2021.  We will notify all eligible patients of an appointment date, please do not contact the surgery. 

All eligible Patients have now been called in the priority groups defined by NHS England. Please let us know as soon as possible if you have not been called for your first vaccination.

People under 50 without underlying medical conditions in England are now being called for vaccination locally. They will be vaccinated in order of age by services working on behalf of the practice. Barwell Medical Centre will be contacting patients directly when they are able to offer a vaccination appointment to patients in this age group.

 

When attending your appointment, please wear loose clothing that can be removed easily and a face mask. Please do not attend if you have Covid symptoms or feel unwell.

 

Patients attending Hinckley Leisure Centre for second doses will be assisted and signposted by marshalls. Vaccine delivery will be undertaken by our own surgery staff or by volunteers who have been approved to work with us.

 

The demand on our telephones is very high at the present so it would be helpful if patients avoid calling the surgery to ask for a Covid 19 vaccine appointment. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
