GP-led Covid vaccination clinics held across Nottingham city and the wider county

A number of pop up GP-led vaccination clinics have been held across the city and county this week.

The aim of the targeted clinics is to encourage people from communities where uptake is lower to come forward for their vaccinations.

Vaccination clinics this week have been held at:

  • AlQuba Mosque – FiveWays Centre in Sherwood
  • Mary Potter Centre in Radford
  • Welbeck Surgery in Carrington
  • Skegby Family Medical Centre
  • Trentside Medical Centre in Netherfield
  • Hucknall Road Medical Centre
  • The Family Medical Centre on Carlton Road
  • Highcroft Surgery and Stenhouse Medical Centre in Arnold
  • Rivergreen Medical Centre in Clifton
  • Deer Park Family Medical Practice in Wollaton Vale
  • Willowbrook Medical Practice, Woodlands Medical Practice and Kings Medical Practice in Sutton-in-Ashfield
  • Wollaton Park Medical Centre
  • Brierly Park Medical Centre in Sutton-in-Ashfield

Over the course of this week, almost 2000 patients have received their Covid-19 vaccine across the different practices.

Work is underway to establish where else clinics need to be identified, with further pop-up clinics happening next week.

Elizabeth Pain, Practice Manager at The Family Medical Centre, said: “The clinic today has gone really well and it’s been great to see people coming in for their vaccinations. It’s really important that anyone eligible for their vaccine gets it as soon as possible to help protect themselves against Covid-19. We are really pleased to have been able to play a part in the roll out of the vaccination programme locally.”

Amanda Sullivan, Accountable Officer at NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG, said: “It’s fantastic to see our local GP surgeries offering vaccination to eligible residents and I would like to thank all of the practices and teams involved who have worked tirelessly to make this happen.

“It’s important we do everything we can to encourage vaccination in areas of low uptake which is why this programme of work is so important.

“We have a number of places across our city and county to be vaccinated including our hospital hubs, local vaccination services and Mansfield Vaccination Centre. I would urge anyone who is currently eligible to book in as soon as possible to help protect themselves and their loved ones against Covid-19.”

Anyone eligible for vaccination who has not yet been vaccinated is still encouraged to have their vaccination at a hospital hub, local vaccination service or Mansfield vaccination centre as soon as possible.
