Covid vaccinations

The Weardale Practice have appointments available for covid vaccinations in our next clinic which will be held on Saturday 20 March 2021 at North House Surgery, Hope Street in Crook.

Patients in eligible cohorts 1 – 9 can book an appointment by contacting Stanhope Health Centre on 01388 528555. 

If you have already arranged an appointment at one of the mass vaccination centres and would prefer instead to book via your GP practice please just give us a call – we can still book your appointment but you will need to cancel your original booking at the mass vaccination centre.

The practice is currently administering Covid vaccinations in accordance with the guidance issued by HM Government which identifies the highest priority groups as :-

Cohort 1 – Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers

Cohort 2 – All those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
