As you are probably aware, this year the flu vaccination is being offered to anyone over the age of 50. This will be the case but only once the priority groups have been immunised, for example anyone over 65, pregnant ladies or anyone with a chronic illness that can affect the immune system.
We will be running the clinics very differently this year due to covid restrictions, but please be assured we will do our part to keep everybody safe and ask you kindly do the same.
Please contact the surgery to book.
Cervical smears are still taking place at the surgery during the covid pandemic. If you have had a reminder or are overdue please call the surgery to book with the practice nurse.
If this is your first smear test please do not worry, it is a very simple and quick process that could potentially save your life.
Please be aware we have a new access to the building. Please buzz and a member of staff will speak to via the intercom system. You can remove your face covering whilst speaking through the intercom. You will either be buzzed in or a memeber will come to the door. Please be patient as staff are also taking calls at the same time.
Due to ongoing concerns around COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are temporarily suspending the facility for patients to book online appointments at the surgery. This is to ensure that we are able to fully assess risk before appointments are booked at the surgery.
