Covid-19 Vaccination Programme

Foundry Healthcare Lewes is privileged to have been one of the first GP sites in East Sussex to offer the Covid-19 Vaccine.

Appointments are to be made by invitation only. Those eligible patients will be contacted by text, with a request to accept, decline or defer their appointment within 24hours.

For those who do not have the facility to receive texts, contact will be made by telephone.

Patients due their 2nd dose will be contacted in the same way as the 1st. Please be patient with us, we will be in touch as soon as we know when your 2nd dose vaccine is due for delivery.

Nearly all patients known to us in Priority Groups 1-9 have received their 1st vaccine dose. If you have previously declined the vaccine but wish to reconsider or you believe you are eligible, as part of any of these priority groups, but have not received invitation from us, or the National Booking Service,  we ask that you contact us via email:

E. esxccg.foundrycovidvaccineenquiries@nhs.net.

Please include your name, date of birth, and your clinical details (If considered to be Clinically Vulnerable).

We are currently only able to vaccinate patients eligible in Groups 1-9 and Patients 40-49yrs*. We are not holding any waiting lists for patients outside of these groups for the purpose of offering any surplus vaccine. We ask that you do not contact us in this regard. We will contact you with invitation to book your vaccine.

*Patients aged 40-49yrs can now also book their vaccine via the National Booking Service for vaccination at one of the  larger vaccination sites or Pharmacy.


We thank all our patients and their family members who have sent such overwhelming messages of support following their appointments.

A selection of these patient testimonials, alongside some very valuable patient feedback, are available for you to view here.

Patient Vaccine Queries

Alongside the complex organisation and administration of our vaccine clinics, our staff and resources are needed to provide day to day NHS primary care services, including urgent care, to our patients.

We ask that in the first instance patients seek information about the vaccine via the following methods:

  • Our Website (Read on for further information & updates)
  • Covid Vax Facts – A website designed to help answer your Covid Vaccine questions
  • Sussex Health and Care Partnerships’s FAQs
  • Covid-19 Vaccine: FACT CHECK 
  • NHS.co.uk

We ask that you do not call the surgery if you cannot find the information you require. Please email our team who will get back to you as soon as they can.

We have received a number of enquiries about what people should be doing after their vaccination.

It is really important that everyone still continues to follow the government guidelines and take the simple steps to keep you and others safe.
