Coronavirus (Co-vid 19) - please call 111 (NHS111) if you are concerned you have symptoms or been in contact with someone with symptoms of Coronavirus. Please do not attend the practice or A&E without taking advice first if you are concerned.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FLU CLINICS THIS YEAR

Due to Covid-19, our flu clinics will be a little different this year.  Please take note of the following guidance for ALL flu clinics to make clinics as smooth and safe as possible for all patients and staff:

 

  • wear a face covering and maintain social distance at all times
  • attend as close to your appointment time as possible
  • wear a short sleeved shirt/blouse/top to give easy access to the top of your arm.  Be prepared to take your coat off while queuing
  • Park off site and walk to the practice.  Parking at the practice will be limited to blue badge holders only for safety.
  • Clinics may be in an outside shelter - please be prepared.

We know that this year has been very unsettling for everyone.  We aim for our flu clinics to flow quickly to maintain social distance but we need the co-operation of everyone to do so.

 

Where possible and depending on the weather, clinics may be held in an outside shelter to maxmise clear air flow.  In inclement weather, clinics may be held inside the practice but with minimal queuing inside the building. 

 

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
