Response to COVID-19 Vaccine Oxford-AstraZeneca media reports
The UK Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, which is responsible for ensuring that medicines and medical devices work and are acceptably safe, have said that evidence DOES NOT suggest that the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab is linked to blood clots.
People should still go and get their COVID-19 vaccine when asked to do so.

Welcome to Stanley Medical Group
New Extended Hours Service - Need to see a GP or nurse in the evening or on a weekend? GPs in Derwentside are working together to offer extra GP and Nurse appointments from 6.30pm on weekday evenings and from 09:30am on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The clinics are held at Tanfield View Medical Group. To book an 'Extended Hours' appointment please contact your surgery Monday-Friday 08.30-5.00. When your surgery is closed, please call 111 to access these clinics. If you need to cancel an appointment, after your own surgery has closed, please ring 07548 652124
We have introduced a cancellation line to make it easier for you to cancel an appointment that you no longer need. Ring 01207 285800 – as soon your call is connected ( you needn’t wait for the announcement to finish) - PRESS 1 on your keypad – you will then be asked to leave details of your appointment on an answerphone which is answered in less than 5 minutes.
Do you really need to see a GP? Can the Pharmacist help?
