Flu Clinics

Our Flu Vaccination clinics will be held through September and October for patients eligible for a free NHS vaccination.

Invitations will initially be sent by text, and appointments can be booked online through AskmyGP in which an appointment will be allocated for you  https://my.askmygp.uk/?c=L85027 alternatively you can call the surgery on 01963 435700 and Press Option 1 for Flu jab appointments.

Attending an appointment

So our clinics run smoothly, please help us by:

  • attending as close to your appointment time as possible
  • wearing a face covering and maintaining social distance
  • wearing a short sleeved shirt/top and be ready to remove your coat
  • being prepared for inclement weather if there is a queue

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the 10 days prior to your appointment, please DO NOT attend the practice but DO re-book your appointment.
