COVID Vaccination booking link or by calling 119.

We are now using the national booking system so you will see appointments outside of the Nottingham area.  Appointments for the vaccination centres are being opened on a phased basis and are added regularly so if there are none showing locally please try again at a later date/time.

Eligible patients who need assistance (transport) to go to a vaccination centre should call the local support line on 0115 8834640.  

Patients who are housebound should have now been contacted to arrange a home visit for a vaccination.

Shortage of Blood Bottles                     

A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests. 

 Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems will still get one, but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled. 

 Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.

 If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
