COVID-19 Vaccination Booster Programme

The Collingham Medical Centre will be supporting the Booster (3rd dose) COVID Vaccine Campaign.    Now we have Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) approval, we are getting ourselves ready to support the Newark & Collingham communities.

Eligible patients need a minimum of 6 months between their last COVID Vaccine and booster.   For our communities these will start to be due from mid-October.  

Once we have confirmation of vaccine delivery, we will contact eligible patients to invite.   There is no need to contact us.   

We aim to deliver a large part of this campaign at weekends in order not to disrupt your general practice services during the working week.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination status
From 17 May, patients can access their COVID-19 vaccination status though the NHS App. Patients are being advised by Gov.uk that they do not need to contact their GP surgery about their COVID-19 vaccination status.

FREE Lateral Flow Test Devices are available from the Collingham Pharmacy - it is important to continue to test to protect you, your family and our community.  Follow national guidance to isolate on a positive test and attend a PCR testing Centre. 

Lateral Flow Testing offers reassurance that you are not carrying the virus, even if symptom free.   If you have symptoms, please book PCR test and isolate.

Collingham & District Village Care

The origins of Collingham & District Village Care can be traced back to 1982 when a Volunteer Group was formed to assist with transport to the Medical Centre.  The transport system was set up with a few willing volunteers and this soon expanded to include visits to hospitals, dentist, opticians, hairdressers, social interaction groups, etc. This service is available to patients registered with Collingham Medical Centre.

The group has gone from strength to strength and is a Registered Charity (no.1140642) and as such has a constitution.  The group relies on fundraising activities, donations and bequests to supplement the funds required to run the transport scheme and support other groups within the village.  There is a dedicated team of volunteer drivers and co-ordinators who give their time willingly to help those who have difficulty accessing transport.  We continue to work jointly with the Medical Centre to serve the interests of patients.

Collingham & District Men in Sheds 

What is ‘Men in Sheds’?

It’s a friendly, welcoming place where men of any age can meet and work together on a range of activities of their choosing.

What’s in it for you?

It’s a chance to be with friends or make new ones – to use & share existing skills, or learn new ones – experience the positive atmosphere of working alongside other men, or just sit & chat over a cup of tea/coffee, and put the world to rights!! And where possible, we shall respond to requests to cover new activities or ideas.

Where is it?

At the traffic lights in Collingham, approaching from Newark, turn right at the traffic lights, down Station Rd. After about 300yds, there’s a right hand bend, followed by a left hand bend, from where the Railway crossing can be seen. On that bend, on the left, just after the white house, No 65, there’s a track marked “Access to Horseshoe Cottages only”. And we’re just down that lane, on the left.

We open from 10.00am until 1.00pm, Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays – but we may change those times (with due notice), in line with “Shedders’” demand.   For up to date information of open days/time, please contact

Richard Challand                01636 894274 or 07936 414750

John Nelson                                     01636 703889
