For the 2020 flu clinics, there will be four different vaccinations allocated to different age groups starting in September.
- The age group eligible for the flu vaccine has been extended to 50 upwards. (50 - 64 year olds will be vaccinated in November & December, providing there is sufficient vaccines. Unless you are in the at risk category then you will be invited sooner.)
- We will be starting with 'at risk' patients. Vaccines will be subject to availability.
- Don't forget you can use your pharmacy for vaccines.
On flu clinic days, we will be operating a one way system.
- All appointments will be booked in advance.
- Social distancing will apply to all appointments.
- Please expect queueing.
- Once you are in the foyer, please remove your coat and roll up your sleeve ready for the vaccine.
- We will NOT be able to do anything other than the flu vaccination in the appointment.
Children in the 'at risk' category, have an option to have their vaccination either at school or at the GP surgery.
Children NOT in the 'at risk' category will receive their vaccine at school and NOT the GP surgery, if this is missed the school will do a mop up session.
Please let us know as early as possible if you require a home visit for your vaccination.

New Prescription Service- Changing 28th April 2020
All prescriptions will now be sent to pharmacies electronically.
If you have a nominated pharmacy there will be no change.
If you want to nominate a pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent to automatically, either tell your GP practice or speak to your pharmacy.
If you do not have a nominated pharmacy you will be issued with a token which looks like a usual prescription but only a barcode on it. You take this to any pharmacy and they will scan the barcode and give you your prescription.
Please allow 72 hours for prescriptions to be processed.
Thank you to everyone who helped us to raise
in total over the year £1075.35
