Flu Vaccinations 

It is really important this year more than ever to get vaccinated.

Our first flu clinic will be held on Saturday the 12th SEPTEMBER between 8am and 4pm. This will be for patients aged over 65. You can also book these appointments online.

If you are eligible for Shingles and Pneumonia vaccination this will be offered at the same time.

The first clinic for the under 65s who are at risk will be held on the 3rd October. Over 65’s can also book into this clinic.

There will also be midweek clinics and evening clinics. Dates are to follow.

If you are visiting the surgery for s different appointment and are eligible for Flu, Shingles or Pneumonia vaccination this will be offered to you during your appointment.

We will adhere to strict protocols to ensure patient safety at this time.

Patients with Long Term Conditions 

We are changing the way we review patients during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Rather than being asked to attend for a routine review in your birthday month. We will be focusing on those patients who are high risk due to their condition or high risk of adverse effects of Coronavirus in the 1st instance. 

This will not affect your medications being reauthorised. 

Thank you for your co-operation at this time.

Face Coverings

If you have an appointment at the surgery from 15th June 2020 you will need to wear a face covering. This could be a mask or scarf. Any item that covers the nose and mouth.

Thank you for your co-operation.

More information on attending GP Appointments during Covid-19 is available here.

Appointments

In line with guidance from NHS England we will be moving to a full triage service for GP appointments. There will be no routine appointments available to book for GPs.

We will be pre-booking some nurse appointments and you will be contacted on the day of your appointment to check you don't have a cough, high temperature or a loss or change in your sense of smell or taste.

You appointments may take place using video and you can find a general guide below on how video consultations work as well as instructions to follow if a GP has sent you a video consultation link.
