Queues may form if there becomes an unavoidable clinical delay and therefore this may result in queues forming outside within our car park - please prepare for typical British weather.

During the flu season our seasonal flu vaccination appointments can be booked via the NHS app or via your online service providers such as Patient Access
If you have no internet, PC access or smartphone then please call the surgery on 01772 503180 after 3pm to inform us or your specific access and communication needs
OUR CLINICS ARE INTENDED TO KEEP OUR PATIENTS AND STAFF SAFE AT ALL TIMES
There will be REDUCED car park spaces at the surgery WITH LIMITED SPACE FOR DISABLED ACCESS AND SPECIFIC ACCESS NEEDS ONLY so please arrive on foot if you are mobile and able to do so.
You are welcome to bring a carer / guardian to support you around the building
Loose fitting clothing or short sleeves should be easily accessable for vaccination to your arm.
To continue to protect other patients, visitors and our healthcare teams who may be vulnerable or have low immune systems may choose to wear a face covering or shield during their visit to the practice and we respect everyone's choices.
Who is eligible to have the flu vaccine?
Please visit NHS websites for NHS eligibility criteria
If you are a carer, or live with or have regular contact with someone who has a weakened immune system or a long-term condition, please read on here.
If you are housebound and do not leave your house and are unable to get to the practice due to mobility / medical reasons then please contact us on 01772 503180 to let us know
Patients or carers are welcome to book an appointment for someone who is genuinely housebound who we may not be aware of, e.g. they may have just come out of hospital and are temporarily unable to leave their home.
Please note, housebound does not mean that someone does not have transport or access to transport.
A housebound patient is someone who is bed or chair bound, either temporarily, or permanently.
Why have your vaccination at your GP Surgery and not elsewhere?
We offer a setting where we can check your medical records and make sure you get the most suitable vaccine
We offer a safe and efficient flu clinic service with your local surgery team
We have already ordered a flu vaccination for all eligible patients registered with us for the 2024/2025 flu vaccination season.
We have to do this in advance and assure NHS England we have enough vaccines for everyone.
