Covid-19 vaccines 


Unless you are aged 70 and over and have not been contacted about having your first vaccine, please DO NOT contact your GP for a COVID-19 vaccine. 


The NHS is prioritising vaccinating people who experts have agreed will benefit the most. We will let you know when it is your turn. Please see here for advice. 


If you are aged 70 and over, and have not been contacted about a first vaccination please let us know. If you are aged 70 and over and housebound we have had to wait until we had the right vaccine, the right procedures and processes, so we have only recently started visiting homes - however there is no harm in ringing us to check we have you on our list.  


There is comprehensive information, guidance, and answers to questions at COVID-19 Vaccination programme | East London Health & Care Partnership (eastlondonhcp.nhs.uk) 


Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines.  Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
