COVID-19

Information & Guidance for our patients     

Covid-19 vaccination programme

Bromley  Connect Primary Care Network (comprising the Dysart, London Lane Clinic and SouthView surgeries) are now running a Covid-19 vaccination centre here at London Lane Clinic.

FOR FIRST DOSES:

NOTE:  ONLY ASTRAZENECA VACCINE IS AVAILABLE FOR FIRST DOSES

When you become eligible for a Covid vaccination, you will be contacted by a text, phone call or a letter inviting you to make an appointment at the London Lane Clinic centre.  So it is essential we have your correct contact details so that you are not missed.

Please do not contact us if you haven’t received an invitation yet.  You will be contacted when it is the right time for you to book an appointment.

London Lane Clinic will be contacting ALL patients from the 3 surgeries when their vaccination is due.

FOR SECOND DOSES:

You will need to go back to where you had your first dose vaccination.

For those who had their first dose at Community House in Bromley, the Community House site is now CLOSED.  You will be offered  your second vaccination dose here at London Lane Clinic.

Your second dose has been reserved for you and will be the same as the first dose.  We will contact you in due course and an appointment will be made for you to have your second dose.  You will not be forgotten, you will be contacted.

Please help us and do not contact the practice or other NHS services to get your second appointment.  Your support is appreciated to keep phone lines open for people who need to make appointments for other health matters.
