Flu vaccination: Who should have it this winter and why

We have a limited number of flu vaccines left for patients aged 65 and over.  If you are in this age group and still require a flu vaccine, please contact the surgery by telephone or email to request an appointment.  Please note that this only applies to patients aged 65 and over!

Please see our information on the Coronavirus thank you

We are aware that some patients might be understandably anxious about the Government's recent announcements around the use of face masks in various public settings. 

Gps are unfortunately not in a position to provide individual risk assessments or letters for patients who feel that they should be exempt from wearing a face mask.
