Sussex Vaccination Centres & Vaccine Groups

In addition to the invitations coming from the surgery NHS England is also sending out letters inviting patients to attend the large county vaccination centres like the Brighton Centre, Eastbourne or TIcehurst. These letters are not coming from the surgery and there may be an overlap between these letters and the calls from the surgery. If you receive these letters you are very welcome to book an appointment on the link from the letter but please be assured you will also be contacted by the surgery offering you an appointment at Etchingham so there is no need to travel farther afield if you do not want to.

More information is given in this leaflet
