Flu Vaccinations 💉
We will begin inviting eligible patients for the flu vaccination from the end of September. This is once the vaccines are available. Please wait for your invite.
Reminder about eligibility:
✔️Aged 65 years and over
✔️Aged 6 months-64 years who are in a clinical or other risk group
✔️All children aged 2 and 3 years old
✔️Front line health and social care workers
✔️Household members of patients on the NHS patient shielded list
Primary school children and year 7’s should be offered their flu vaccination as part of the school immunisation programme.
The aim is to then further extend the vaccine programme in November and December to include all 50-64 year olds. This is subject to vaccine supply.
From 10am on Wednesday 26th August our waiting room will be open again for patients who have been given an appointment.
It is important you speak to the receptionist when you arrive.
We hope you won’t have to wait for your appointment, but if there is a queue, please maintain 2-metre social distancing. There are separate lines for dispensary desk and reception desk.
Please do not come for your appointment if you have any Covid-19 symptoms (new cough +/- temperature over 38c +/- loss of smell or taste) or think you may have Covid-19.
To help reduce the risk of Covid-19 virus spreading during face-to-face consultations, our clinicians will first try to deal with your query by phone, text, or online messaging. Face-to-face consultations can be offered if needed.
Patients will need to bring a mask or face-covering to any face-to-face appointments.
You can help us by only coming to the Practice if you have been given an appointment, and you can also help by registering for the askmyGP online system (see the Get Help Now link on our website homepage).
We have now reopened our waiting room and the dispensary desk. Please speak to the receptionist when you arrive. If there is a queue, please maintain 2 metre social distancing.
