FLU VACCINE

Please contact the Practice to book an appointment.

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

If you think you or someone in your household has COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19, use the NHS 111 online service. You should only call 111 if you cannot access the internet or cannot cope at home. Do not go to the GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you have these symptoms.


If you have any one of the following symptoms: a high temperature, a new continuous cough, loss of taste or smell, you can now get tested for coronavirus. Do not leave home for any other reason other than to get tested. Find out how to get a test and how long to isolate at NHS.uk/coronavirus.

Bank Holidays are always a busy time for the NHS and with the country at a crucial stage in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to remind you to use the correct service.

Due to the lockdown, GPs will telephone triage patients first and will provide either a video consultation or face to face appointment if necessary. Patients who require medical advice will only be asked to visit the practice if this is deemed necessary by the clinical team.

Our GPs will be able to provide care for those who need it for all other medical conditions and concerns, including for those with long term conditions and for those needing immunisations.

Most pharmacists will be open over the Easter weekend. You should first check the pharmacy opening hours and when you visit, comply with the social distancing measures in place to protect yourself and staff.

Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we are limiting all face to face appointments.
