SEASONAL FLU VACCINATIONS THIS WINTER.

The surgery will shortly be starting to invite eligible patients for their seasonal flu vaccination by phone call or text message.

The surgery will provide clinics during the week and a Saturday flu clinic on 16th October.  We will be inviting patients in a specific order to make sure we have a vaccine to allocate to every patient whom is eligible.

Staff at the surgery have been working hard to plan and organise vaccinating patients as soon as vaccines are delivered to us. We will be starting to vaccinate from the 27th September 2021.

Please support your local surgery;

We know other providers like pharmacies and supermarkets offer flu jabs to our patients.

Like all other GP practices we rely on funding from each flu vaccination we give to ensure we can acquire the same amount of vaccines for next year and to help maintain our services.

Every single flu vaccine patients have elsewhere means loss of funding for your GP practice.

Please support your GP surgery by choosing to have your flu vaccine with us.
