FLU SEASON 2020/21

Don't let the FLU catch you! Yes it's that time of year again..... Every season, influenza does more damage than most people realize. It can affect your child or parent, a friend or family member, a colleague or loved one. If you are over 65, pregnant, have a child 2-3yrs of age, a carer, have a long term health condition, or perhaps your unsure? Please call the surgery.

Flu Clinics are to be arranged and will be advertised for our patients once the practice has received our Flu Vacs

50-64 Year Old Age Group

Please note that people in the 50-64 year old age group will not be vaccinated against influenza until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered to this 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.

Opening Times

The surgery can be contacted via telephone between 08:00 and 18:00 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and between 08:00 and 12:00 on a Wednesday. 

Alternatively, if you wish to speak to a member of staff face to face, a receptionist is always available during these times.   

Please note - The surgery is closed on the third Thursday afternoon of each month for staff training.
