COVID-19 Vaccination Campaign
29/12/2021 – As from today we are using a new method for inviting patients to book Covid vaccination appointments. Our hope is to try to make things easier for patients and to help manage the amount of phone calls coming through to Reception. This should help leave the phone lines more available for unwell patients who need our help. If you do not have a mobile phone or internet access; please ring Reception on 01386 552424 who will be happy to help you. For patients who have a mobile phone: you will be sent a text with a link to book your Covid vaccination appointment at Abbottswood Medical Centre.
