Barnsley Healthcare Federation are increasing the amount of vaccine being delivered in Barnsley. As such, Apollo Court Clinic will be moving to 6 days a week (Tuesday – Sunday) up until Christmas and most likely all of January. Apollo Court Clinic is now on the National Booking System which can be accessed by patients by calling 119 or utilising the NHS website to book a coronavirus vaccine. Vaccines are alos being given at The Metrodome, Barnsley.

Recent Government announcements have stated that GPs are expected to ‘clinically prioritise’ their services to ‘free up’ capacity to support the vaccine campaign, alongside critical appointments such as cancer and urgent care. This might mean that routine appointments are postponed. Please be patient as this is unavoidable and our team are following Government guidance.
