We are holding a further Flu Vaccination Clinic on Wednesday afternoon 21 November 2018. This is for the over 75 age group so if you have received an invitation letter for this clinic please contact the Practice to book your appointment.
There continues to be a shortage of the new vaccine for the over 65 age group. Additional flu vaccination clinics will be scheduled as we receive further vaccine so please wait for your invitation letter before contacting the surgery to book an appointment.
