Anyone approaching or entering the surgery building must now wear a covering over their nose & mouth; whether it be to attend an appointment, collect a prescription, or be a chaperone for someone else.
Please do not arrive EARLY for your appointment.
In accordance with current social distancing guidelines, we are not permitting patients to wait inside the building. You may be asked to return to your vehicle and wait for your clinician to become available. Please therefore be mindful of the weather conditions when setting out and come prepared.
We would like to thank you all for your understanding and support during these challenging times. We continue to do our upmost to ensure we offer high standard healthcare in a manner that is safe for both patients and our dedicated staff.
Flu Vaccinations Autumn/Winter 2020
We are still busy booking appointments for flu vaccinations.
Due to Covid-19 we are running our flu clinics slightly differently this year, with enhanced safety measures and social distancing, to minimise the risk to both your health and ours.
Our second vaccine delivery for the over 65 age group arrived on 16th October, but we are not due to receive the vaccine for the Under 65 at risk group until the end of October at the earliest. We will continue dedicated vaccination clinics, primarily on Saturdays, throughout the autumn season.
All clinics will continue to be by appointment only, managed by a bookings team via a dedicated telephone line, separate to our main surgery number. Please try to avoid contacting our reception team to book or enquire about a flu vaccination; bear in mind they are trying to deal with patients who require medical assistance and also they may not have access to the flu clinic appointment schedules.
We are experiencing a higher than usual demand for vaccinations this year and so we have tried to ensure that patients in the highest risk groups get invited and vaccinated first. We have sent invitations via email and/or text message to those eligible patients who have given us permission to do so. For those who haven't, a letter has been sent via Royal Mail.
Those patients aged 50 to 64 who are included in the new extended flu vaccination programme will be contacted later in the season after the higher risk groups have been vaccinated and when we receive further advice & instruction (and vaccine supplies) from NHS England.
We need you! See our Staff Vacancies page for further info...
