     MHRA new advice on AstraZeneca vaccine: MHRA issues new advice on AztraZeneca vaccine

We have been asked by NHS England to start delivering the COVID-19 mass vaccination programme from 15 December. This will be done by working together with other local GP Practices (called a Primary Care Network) to provide the vaccines, rather doing vaccinations here at the practice. To enable everyone to get the vaccine in a safe and controlled way, a prioritisation list has been established so the vaccine can be delivered to groups who need it first. The bookings team will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine .  Read more.....  COVID-19 vaccination update

Organ Donation in England has moved to an 'opt out' system:    

What has changed?

Organ donation in England has moved to an 'opt out' system. You may also hear it referred to as 'Max and Keira's Law'.

This means that all adults in England will be considered to have agreed to be an organ donor when they die unless they have recorded a decision not to donate or are in one of the excluded groups.

Your family will still be approached and your faith, beliefs and culture will continue to be respected.

You still have a choice about whether or not you wish to become a donor. Get the facts about organ donation to help you decide.
