COVID-19 Vaccine: The NHS will get in touch when it’s your turn to be vaccinated – please do not contact the Surgery before then
The first phase of the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme has begun. However, initially the vaccination will be prioritised for those over 80, care home workers and residents, and frontline health and care staff. These vaccinations will be delivered through a limited number of Hospital and GP Hubs. See this leaflet explaining who was chosen for the first group and why.
If you are in a priority group, when it is the right time, you will receive an invitation to come forward for your vaccination. For most people this will be a letter (some might receive a text from their GP practice), either from the practice or the national NHS. This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number.
This is going to be a long-term programme and it will likely take until at least Spring before all high-risk groups have been offered a COVID-19 vaccine.
Please help us and do not contact the practice or other NHS services to get an appointment for a COVID vaccination until you get this letter. Please also continue to follow the national guidance to control the virus and save lives.
Information on the vaccine is available on www.selondonccg.nhs.uk/what-we-do/covid-19/

Welcome to The Burney Street Practice
The Burney Street practice was established over 25 years ago to serve the medical needs of the surrounding residential area. At that time the Burney Street practice was served by just one doctor.
Since then the Burney Street practice has grown to a patient list size of over 17,000 patients. To accommodate this growth our team has steadily grown to now incorporate 9 permanent GP's (3 male & 7 female), 2 practice nurses, and 2 phlebotomist and a comprehensive team of Receptionists and Administrative Staff.
The Burney Street practice continues to serve the local Greenwich area, but with the addition of our Branch Surgery at The Wallace Health Centre we have widened our area to incorporate the new developments in and around the Creek Side area of Deptford.
Both surgeries offer identical clinics with many of our clinicians working from both sites. At the current time we can only accept new patients who live within close proximity to the surgery. Please call in or telephone our receptionists who will be able to advise you on the relevant area.
