ALERT: TELEPHONE SYSTEM

We are currently experiencing issues with our telephone system. If you are unable to contact us by phone then please use eConsult or phone 111. We will have the system up and running as soon as possible. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

FLU VACCINATIONS

We are running Saturday clinics here at the practice during October and November. These will not be walk-in clinics.

You will need to make an appointment. If you are in the following categories:

* If you  are aged 65 years or over
* If you are aged 65 years and younger in an at-risk group
(for example, you have asthma)

You can make an appointment either by telephoning the practice or booking online:

FLU VACCINATIONS FOR 50-64 YEAR OLDS

Flu Vaccinations for 50-64 year olds

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

CARERS & HEALTHCARE WORKERS

Are you a carer or a healthcare worker?

If you are then please get in touch with the practice as you may be entitled to a flu vaccination.
