Flu Vaccinations Winter 2020
The Practice is encouraging ALL eligible patients to have the flu vaccination.
Saturday flu clinics are planned for the 3rd, 10th and 24th October and 7th November. These are all available to book on line now, however we are aware of the high demand for these appointments and would ask you to bear with us. Our first clinic on 3rd October will be a pilot clinic, and once we have an idea of our capacity, taking into account social distancing measures and infection control, we will be making more appointments available. All those eligible will receive a text or letter from the practice. Please be aware that if you are not eligible for a flu jab, or you have booked into the wrong clinic we will cancel your appointment. This is to ensure you get the correct vaccine and the highest risk patients get the vaccine first.
For the safety of both patients and staff, we will be operating social distancing and please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your appointment. We are expecting to do an increased number of flu vaccinations and will publish details of any additional clinics through the winter once we have a better idea of demand and when vaccination stocks will be made available.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THESE FLU CLINICS, WE WILL PROVIDE AN UPDATE WHEN THEY ARE READY TO BOOK INTO.
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age 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.

COVID-19 Important Information
In light of the current status in the UK with the COVID-19 pandemic we have implemented some changes to how we are managing our patient care.
We have temporarily suspended general access to the building please do not attend the surgery. However please be reassured we are still here if you need us, we are trying to conduct most appointments over the phone and email is another option. We are also looking into video consultations.
If you need to speak to a GP please call the surgery and speak to the reception team on 01223 423424 they will be able to assist you with arranging a telephone consultation.
If you need to order medication there are a number of ways you can do this without attending the surgery these are as follows;
- email your request to us at email@example.com , please remember to include the patients name and date of birth .
- You can also use our 24hr automated telephone ordering system (you will require a PIN number for this service this can be arranged for you over the phone by reception).
- You can also send a request through the post (please include a SAE if you wish us to post back to you)
- If you have a System Online account or the NHS app you can order your medication via these methods.
For our more vulnerable (at risk groups) patients we are restricting appointments to our morning clinics to reduce the risk of exposure.
We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation at this difficult time.
