2020 Flu Vaccinations update.

Flu vaccinations will be managed slightly differently this year due to larger eligible groups and the requirement for social distancing.  This means that you may not come to the surgery for your vaccination and instead may be invited to attend at another location.

If you are not in an eligible group and would still like to get the flu vaccination, you can pay a small fee to be immunised at most local pharmacies.

The following groups will be eligible for a free vaccination as detailed:

All pre-school children – The pre-school immunisation team will contact parents and guardians with an appointment at a community location.

Primary school children – All primary school children will be immunised at school.  Please note there is NO opportunity this year for missed vaccinations to be done in the GP surgery.

Dear Patient,

patient surveyWe would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. 

To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
