    Hi and welcome 

    Sorry to hear your situation and hope you can get your back sorted 

    I had my covid vaccine at home but I am unable to leave the house unless escorted so was put on the surgeries housebound list

    Welcome to the community @tabs57 :) How are you doing?

    I'm also sorry to hear about your situation. Were you able to explain your circumstances in full to your doctor? Is there anyone else at the surgery you could ask to speak to? Would travelling to the GP surgery be a possibility for you at all, if it were to come to that?

    I would raise a complaint through the practice manager and see if that can resolve things. 

    Although I’m not 100% sure if there is any guidance that has been published in this area so it maybe that they have to decide on a case by case basis.
