Our teams are working hard to ensure that this year’s flu clinics can be carried out in the safest and most efficient way possible. The safety of patients and staff is our priority. Please note the following important information:

  • Please DO NOT attend if you are unwell, displaying any symptoms of coronavirus, and/or have had recent contact with anyone with confirmed coronavirus.​
  • All clinics are by appointment only. Please arrive promptly at your appointment time and no more than 5 minutes before. If you arrive at the practice late or without an appointment, you will be asked to leave and contact our Monday – Friday team to re-book.
  • Please wear a face covering. If you do not have a face mask, you can use a scarf or similar item to cover your nose and mouth.  Please note that due to PPE shortages, we are unable to supply face masks on arrival.
  • Entry to the practice is subject to a routine non-invasive temperature check. If you are required to queue, please respect social distancing and stay 2m apart.
  • Parking at the practice is limited. If you can, please arrive on foot.

Thank you for your co-operation.
