Our teams are working hard to ensure that this year’s flu clinics can be carried out in the safest and most efficient way possible. The safety of patients and staff is our priority. Please note the following important information:

  • All clinics are by APPOINTMENT ONLY. If you arrive without an appointment, we cannot guarantee you a flu vaccination.
  • Please WAIT IN THE CAR when you arrive. The nurse will collect you from the car park. If you are arriving on foot, please wait outside near the staff entrance.
  • Due to limited parking and large numbers of patients attending, please arrive on foot if you can.
  • Please wear WEATHER APPROPRIATE CLOTHING in case outdoor queuing is required.
  • Please DO NOT attend if you are unwell, displaying any symptoms of coronavirus, and/or have had recent contact with anyone with confirmed coronavirus.​
  • Please wear a face covering. If you do not have a face mask, you can use a scarf or similar item to cover your nose and mouth.  Please note that due to PPE shortages, we are unable to supply face masks on arrival.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Our teams continue to work extremely hard to ensure that the thousands of our patients requiring flu vaccinations are vaccinated in the safest, most efficient way possible. Had a positive experience at the practice recently? Please join our other patients in leaving feedback on NHS Choices.
