The flu clinics are now open for you to book your flu appointment, please telephone the surgery on 01242 215015 and to assist us please don’t telephone before 10:30 as the telephone lines are very busy before this time.
This flu clinic is for patients aged 18 – 64 years old, and is for patients who are in one or more of the disease management groups (please see below).
This is the 1st of two clinics that we will be running for this age group, please can we ask that the “Well 50 – 64 year olds” do not telephone the surgery as we currently don’t have any flu vaccines for this group yet, we are hopeful these will be available for us to buy in November 2020.
This flu clinic is running on the 24th October starting at 08:00. Please ensure that you have an appointment (no walk ins), wear a face covering, wear a short sleeved shirt/blouse, wear a coat if required, arrive at your appointment time, not early or late, and please do not bring additional family members with you unless you require a carer/family member to assist you.
Please can you ensure that we have the correct contact details for you. If you need to update your contact details such as an email, mobile/home telephone please complete the Change Personal Details triage.
