Angmering and Fitzalan Primary Care Network led the way in the Arun district, as one of the first in the area to start vaccinating patients in December 2020, and has now given more than 29,000 vaccinations to its patients. As the country moves on to the younger cohorts, GP practices were given the opportunity to opt out and send these patients to mass vaccination sites, with some being offered venues as far as Brighton and Crawley.

Nichola Gasston, administrator, said: “Our Primary Care Network felt it was our responsibility to look after not only our patients but also all the residents of Littlehampton and Angmering, and as such we are keeping our doors open for all patients in the local community.”
