We are aware that some patients may have received an NHS letter inviting them to book a COVID-19 vaccination online. Some of these appointments appear to be based many miles outside of the local area. This letter is sent centrally by the NHS, not by The Downland Practice. If you are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, you WILL be contacted by the team at the practice by telephone and offered an appointment at Newbury Racecourse. In accordance with NHS guidelines, patients in Group 2 (i.e. patients aged 80 and over, and health and social care professionals) are being contacted first. Our team are working extremely hard to ensure all eligible patients are contacted and offered an appointment as soon as possible.
SCAM REMINDER: Be aware of scams. Our team will NEVER ask you for your bank details, personal passwords, or PIN numbers when offering you a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.
Thank you for your support during these challenging times.
