Please do not contact the surgery to book a covid vaccination. Please wait to be invited.
Patients will be contacted to arrange an appointment for vaccinations at the Forest of Dean Vaccination Centre in Cinderford. Invitations are being issued to cohorts in the order of priority identified by the NHS. Patients will receive either a text message with a booking link, or contacted by landline if we do not have your mobile number. Please wait to be contacted for your appointment.
Patients may also choose to have their vaccination at an NHS mass vaccination centre or pharmacy. If you have received a letter from the NHS Booking Centre it contains information on how to book your appointment online at one of these NHS Centres. Once you receive this, you can also call 119 to book over the phone.
Further information is available on the Forest GP Surgeries website or Facebook page. Lots of information is available on the NHS website as well as answers to FAQs (frequently asked questions) so please check these websites before contacting the surgery.
Our telephone lines are very busy so please help us to free up these lines for our vulnerable patients.
Please, only contact the surgery to book an appointment if you are in Cohorts 1-4 and were unable to accept your invitation when it was offered, but would now like to go ahead.
