FLU VACCINATION CLINIC INFORMATION 2020
- This year we need to ensure that we follow all social distancing rules in order to keep both you and our staff safe.
- Patients will need to attend their flu vaccination appointment at the correct time, and only those patients being vaccinated should come into the surgery.
- If you will be attending one of our Saturday clinics, please note that the Practice will only be open for flu vaccinations and not for any other queries.
- It is important that patients are in the building for the shortest time possible, and therefore as you enter the Surgery we need to ask you to remove your clothing so that you bare arm up to your shoulder is ready for your vaccination.
- All patients should wear a face covering, unless you have a medical exemption.
Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group 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.’
We look forward to seeing you all very soon

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL PATIENTS
During this difficult time, we want to assure you that we are still here for your health needs. It is especially important to remember that there are health problems other than COVID-19 that you may need help with and that if you have a medical emergency you still need to access urgent healthcare. Please do not put off contacting us if you have a medical need, sometimes contacting us can prevent a hospital admission if we can treat you promptly. You can contact us via e-consult or telephone and we will conduct a remote assessment. This may mean we respond to queries via email, phone you or conduct a video consultation with you.
If you need to be seen face to face we can arrange to do this safely, following national guidance to minimise the risk of infection. We also have the ability to discuss your care with hospital specialists when needed. The hospital is still “open for business” and if you need hospital care we can support you with this.
Outside of our opening hours, if you have an urgent medical (physical or mental health) need please visit https://111.nhs.uk/ or call 111 if you cannot access the website.
