Flu Clinics

We apologise because of the current situation we are unable to offer a wide variety of clinics on different days and times as is usually the case. Please contact the surgery to make an appointment.

We currently have a clinic for patients under 65 years old on Wednesday, 16th September and for patients 65 years old and over on Saturday, 26th September. If you cannot make either of these clinics we will be arranging additional clinics in October when we receive our next batches of vaccine.
