When will I get my jab? – update for Brightling residents

Information from Sussex Health and Care Partnership, published on 18 January 2021

Thanks to an extraordinary effort by the NHS across Sussex, a GP led vaccination service is due to go live on Wednesday [20 January] to provide the COVID-19 vaccine to people in Rural Rother.

The GP led vaccination service at Etchingham Village Hall is a partnership between Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust and the following GP practices:

Fairfield Surgery [Burwash], Ferry Road Health Centre, Martins Oak Surgery [Battle], Northiam and Broad Oak Surgery, Oldwood Surgery [Robertsbridge], Rye Medical Centre, and Sedlescombe and Westfield Surgeries

Patients from those GP practices who are over the age of 80 will be the first to receive the vaccination from this service over the course of this week.

People are asked not to contact your GP practice but to wait until you are contacted. You will be contacted as soon as an appointment is available for you.

We are also asking people not to turn up early for their appointments. Arriving on time will help us manage the number of people at the venue and help keep our patients and staff safe.

The above is an edited extract from the full announcement on the Sussex Health and Care Partnership website.
