Flu Vaccinations

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.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) We would prefer patients attending the surgery for a Face 2 Face appointment to wear a mask

All appointment requests will be booked for a telephone triage appointment with a clinician who will assess the patient. The clinician will then decide if the patient will need to be seen face to face or if their medical need / request can be dealt with over the telephone. 

Patients needing emergency appointments will be asked the following screening questions by the Care Navigation team:

1) Do you have a new continuous cough?

2) Do you have a high temperature?

 Thank you for your continued support.

Online Booking System

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we have been advised by NHS England to switch off our online appointments. This will allow the  care navigators on reception the opportunity to triage appointments to make sure that patient's presenting with coronavirus symptoms are signposted to NHS 111 as per the NHS and Public Health guidelines. 

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and will of course switch the online booking system back on as soon as it is safe to do so.
