NEWSFLASH:

Flu Vaccine Delivery DelaysPractices across the UK have been informed that Flu vaccine deliveries from the supplier Seqirus, are going to be delayed by at least one to two weeks, due to "unforeseen freight challenges". This means that UK General Practices will be without vaccines, possibly until the beginning of October. This is completely outside of our control.

We are working hard to change our existing plans and ensure that as soon as confirmed delivery dates are received, patients will be contacted and appointments booked.

Please Do Not telephone the practice to book an appointment - you will be contacted when we have further information.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how we contact you will be different at the moment.  This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.  Face to face appointments are available, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what is most appropriate for you and to keep staff and patients safe.

Please DO NOT come to the surgery unless you have an appointment

Vaccine Scam Alert

We are aware some people are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the covid vaccine.  In some cases people are asked to press a number on their keypad or send a text message to confirm they would like the vaccine.  Doing so is likey to result in a charge to the phone bill.  In other cases callers are offered the vaccine for a fee and asked for bank details.  Please take care.
