Flu Clinics 2019

Dated: 23-Sep-19

Please support your GP Practice and have your flu jab here.

If you choose to have your flu vaccination somewhere else, such as a pharmacy or supermarket, we will not get the vital funding which we use to improve services and employ doctors and nurses. Please help us by not putting the variety and volume of services we offer to you at risk and have your flu jab with us. Eligible patients will already have received a letter with details of our Saturday clinic dates.

If you have any queries please contact the surgery. 

Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus. The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.
