We will be arranging appointments to coincide with delivery of new vaccine stock. Please be patient as we make plans for this and wait to be contacted. Please remember that vaccinations will continue throughout the winter season.

If you are in an at-risk group, you remain a priority for vaccination and should contact us as soon as possible for your free flu vaccine.

We have a range of measures in place to keep you safe from Covid-19.

If you are a household member or a carer of a shielded patient, you are eligible for the flu vaccination. Please contact the practice for more information or visit your local community pharmacy.

For parents/carers of two and three year olds, you should receive an invitation for your child to have the vaccination at the practice before the winter. If you haven’t heard by early November, contact the practice directly to make an appointment. 

For primary school-aged children and those in Year 7 at secondary school, a vaccination session will be held at school during the autumn term. Your local healthcare team will contact you via the school.
