Noticeboard

Whilst we’ve received information that all 50-64 year olds may be eligible for a free flu vaccination as part of plans to protect more people against seasonal flu, these free vaccinations will be subject to vaccine delivery later in the year.

This allows us (GP’s and community pharmacists) to focus on those who are in an at risk group, such as pregnant women and people with long term health conditions. They will be given priority and offered the vaccine first; if you are in this category you will be contacted.

If you are aged 50-64 and not in one of the at risk categories you will be made aware in the coming months if you will be able to attend for vaccination. If the programme is extended this is likely to be November or December.

We are working together with other local practices to offer more appointments in the early mornings, evenings or at weekends. Speak to a member of the practice team to find out more.

Improving access to general practice: evening and weekend appointments now available

 

Patients who are registered at this practice can now book an appointment to see or speak to a GP or nurse on weekday evenings (after 6.30pm) or at the weekends (on Saturdays).

 

Talk to our receptionists to find out more or book an appointment. Some appointments are available to book online. To sign up to book online you will need to visit the surgery with some ID.

 

By March 2019 everyone in England will benefit from access to general practice appointments in the evenings and weekends at a time that is most convenient to them. This is part of a national drive to help improve access to general practice and get the best possible outcomes for patients.
