Flu Vaccination Campaign
"We are currently making plans for our 2020 Flu Campaign"
Please note we do not receive the Flu Vaccination for the under 65 age group until October. We will be contact the eligible patients by letter. Please be patient with us, this is a delivery issue which we have no control over. If you feel you are unable to wait until we contact you, flu vaccination are available at high street pharmacies.
As you can imagine this year is going to be more challenging than in previous years. We are very much governed with what we can do based on delivery timescales (on orders that are placed a year in advance) The over 65 age group will be the first group to receive vaccines this year. It is especially important that when you receive your letter you read it thoroughly as there are wide-scale differences in this years process. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A LETTER. We will update this page when the letters are sent out.
The Doctors and Staff thank you for your continued support.
In line with the recommendation by the BMA the practice will not provide a letter of support to patients who are or feel they should be exempt from wearing a face covering. Please seek advice and guidance on this from the Government Website.
