FLU CLINIC UPDATES

Appointments available now, please call reception to reserve a vaccination and a clinic slot for you.

Our flu clinics will be held outdoors where possible to ensure social distancing and the safety of our patients and staff. We ask all patients to wear face covers / masks when attending the surgery. Due to the large volume of patients we need to see, we ask that patients arrive on the scheduled time, and to come dressed to ensure easy access to the top of your arm. You will be signposted at the surgery and we will operate a one way system. There is no parking on site, and you will be expected to park your vehicle elsewhere. Your co-operation is appreciated.
