The practice is working together with other practices in our Primary Care Network (PCN). We are now able to offer the Covid-19 vaccination to patients we will invite you when you are in the correct cohort  once you are  registered with our group of practices.

Eligible patients registered with our practice will be invited to receive the vaccination, at Westcroft Health Centre, 1 Savill Lane, Westcroft, Milton Keynes, MK4 4EN. 

Please help us to manage our time and get through the vaccination cohorts sooner by  not calling us to book a Covid-19 vaccination as all eligible patients will be contacted by us and invited to attend a vaccination appointment. We are now working through cohort 1- 11 .If you have not yet been invited we will contact you as soon as the vaccines and appointments become available  


Following recent publicity that the Government is discussing vaccinating 12 – 15 year olds in the near future, we want to confirm that this is not in the guidelines at present. We are offering vaccinations to -

 

People aged 25 or over; anyone who has a health condition that puts them at higher risk of COVID; and anyone providing care for someone.

 

It will be down to the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation to advise on whether this age group will be vaccinated as part of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

Ensure you notify the practice of a change of address or telephone number. This is so we can communicate with you about our services or at the request of a gp.
