We are still running our children's flu clinic on Wednesday 23rd September.
We are now beginning to book flu appointments for all over 65's. Please contact reception to book an appointment.
For patients under 65 and in the at risk groups, more information will follow.
We apologise for the delay in the provision of under 65 at risk flu groups, this is due to provider delivery availability for this type of vaccine.
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. This is in line with NHS England advice and guidance.
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 vaccinated as usual.

The practice was established in 1984. Since this time, the practice has undergone major extension and refurbishment in order to keep up with the demands of an ever changing primary care. All consulting rooms are on the ground floor and are designed to meet the needs of all our patients, particularly those with disabilities.
We are a partnership of one male doctor and two female doctors and we employ two female salaried doctors, with additional support when needed from a regular locum doctor. You are welcome to see any doctor, but we do encourage you to see the same doctor for the same problem to aid continuity of care.
We have a small car park with limited spaces for Patients. There is on street parking available within the area, but we do ask all patients to park responsibly.
