Flu Programme 2021
We are awaiting details of this year Flu Campaign, however it is expected that the Practice will be responsible for only vaccinating the 80 Years of age and over and our housebound patients.
As soon as we have more details we will let you know.
Hand Sanitisers are also available throughout the surgery. You will be asked to sanitise your hands upon arrival.
We know that all these measures are challenging, however washing your hands, physical distancing and wearing a face covering is vital if we are to reduce infection rates and keep the Practice Staff and our patient’s safe at this time.
In response to the latest government advice we are triaging all appointment requests over the phone. Please DO NOT ATTEND the surgery but instead phone 01655 882708 and one of the clinicians will phone you back. If you require to be seen, the clinician will arrange this with you.
Please attend your appointment alone unless you need help from a carer or family member. Please arrive as close to your appointment time as possible. Anyone not attending an appointment will be asked to wait outside.
We are trying to limit the number of people within the building and waiting room area.
Waiting room space is limited to allow for social distancing.
Please remember to cancel your appointment if you no longer need it.
