Important Information for Patients about your COVID-19 vaccination

You will soon be invited for your Covid-19 vaccine. Here is how it will work:

  1. You will receive a text message to your mobile phone. Please follow the instructions in the text message to book your appointment at the Brighton Racecourse Vaccination Facility.  This is the easiest and quickest way to get your appointment.
  2. If you cannot respond to the text, you will receive a phone call inviting you to book your appointment
  3. The texts and calls will come from our partners who are organising the appointments.  They may be called ‘NHSNoReply’ or ‘HERE’ or ‘IAS’.  You can trust them.

There is more information about what to do when you receive your invitation in this letter from Sarah Webb, our Practice Manager. Please download and read it carefully.

From the 25th of January 2021, there is a new vaccination centre opening at the Brighton Centre:

Patients have reported that 119 are advising them to call their GP practice. Unfortunately we are not able to help with the central vaccination program, so please do not call us.

  1. This is being run by Brighton & Hove CCG in partnership with Sussex Community Foundation Trust.
  2. They are sending invitations to eligible patients by letter. The letters contain a link to book an appointment online and advise you to call 119 if you are unable to use the website.
  3. The letters are marked as coming from ‘NHSEngland’ directly, rather than from Wellsbourne Healthcare.
