Please be aware that we are experiencing unprecedented levels of demand at the moment and despite our best efforts, we are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with this demand. Our waiting time now for a non-urgent appointment is around 3 weeks. If you feel you need to contact us, please consider if there are other avenues that may give you a quicker answer. Read More.

Flu clinic instructions
We have redesigned our flu clinics this year to minimise any risks from coronavirus. We have a strict one way system in place and social distancing in the queue. Our aim is for you to spend the minimum amount of time necessary in the practice.
Please follow these instructions for your safety and that of our staff:
- Attend on your own unless you need help to access the practice.
- Arrive on time for your appointment - do not come early or late. We have allocated a strict number of patients per period to ensure that people are queueing for the minimum of time and social distancing is maintained.
- Please wear a face covering. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, please be prepared to provide evidence of this.
- Please follow the instructions for queuing. The queue will be controlled to ensure social distancing. If you are in a wheelchair or have very limited mobility, please make yourself known to the queue marshal.
- Wear clothing which makes it easy to expose your upper arm.
- Please heed the instructions of the staff who are supervising the patient flow – they are there for your safety.
Do not attend the flu clinic if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus, or if you have been told to isolate.
Free flu vaccinations may also be available towards the end of the year to people aged between 50-64. However, it is important to stress that this will be subject to vaccine supply and priority will be given to those in at risk groups first.
