Children are asked to submit their suggestion, with a parent or teacher, via the online competition page by 30th April. The successful entry will be used to name the centre, and the winner will receive £50 in book tokens for their class.

Dr Hicham Nakouzi is GP Partner at Saxonbrook, he said: “It’s a privilege to involve the community, and especially children, in this important project. We have spent three months creating a safe and effective setting for local residents to receive their vaccine and we want them to continue to feel involved in our ongoing work. We look forward to receiving lots of competition entries in the coming weeks.”

Full terms and conditions as well as instructions about how to submit an entry can be found at: https://abcltd.org.uk/nhscrawleyschoolscompetition/The new vaccination unit at the Maidenbower site launched last week and allows the Saxonbrook team to administer up to 2,000 vaccinations per day separate to the practice’s day-to-day GP services.

Saxonbrook was among the first sites in the UK to welcome patients to receive the Covid vaccine in December and has since administered more than 18,000 doses.

Saxonbrook’s vaccination programme is being rolled out by GP Federation Alliance for Better Care, which has practice members across East Surrey, Crawley, Horsham and Mid-Sussex. To date, ABC has launched seven vaccination sites in the region and administered more than 130,000 doses of the vaccine.
