Additional Flu Vaccine cohort 2020

Along with the rest of the population we heard last friday 20th  November on BBC Breakfast that the 50 - 64 age group could be vaccinated against Flu from 1st Dec 2020.  Having received confirmation of this later in the day we have finally managed to order some vaccines but they will not be with us until during December so please DO NOT phone to arrange an appointment yet, we have not confirmed clinic dates and times as yet as we are not sure when the vaccines will arrive. As soon as we have more information we will be texting inviting everyone with a mobile number and sending written invitation to anyone else. We will also update the website and Facebook pages.  Thank you for your patience.

Influenza vaccinations – appointments and drop-clinics.  We recommend an influenza vaccine for the elderly and patients with certain conditions including chronic heart, lung or kidney disease and diabetics.  The vaccination is normally available from October through to early March depending on supplies, but its best to get protected as early in October/November as you can. 

Maternity services – the local midwifery services provide a weekly ante-natal care clinic at the surgery.  doctors are available for additional consultations, if necessary.  Post-natal care is by appointment with the doctors.  If you need to speak to a community midwife or the delivery suite please check you green notes for the best telephone numbers to call.
