Flu Season
We are now getting towards the end of the majority of the flu vaccinations in the practice.  Over the next few weeks the last of the at risk groups should have been in for the annual flu vaccination.  Anyone who has not yet received an appointment should phone the practice - around mid November.  NOTE - if you are housebound and normally have the district nurse visit, then they will be starting their vaccination programme shortly. 

We have over 2000 patients to vaccinate each year, so we are grateful for everyone's attendance and especially to the nurses for administering the vaccine.

Late Patients
If you are late for your appointment, the reception staff will check with the GP to see if you will still be seen, however if you are more than 10 minutes late you will have to re-book. If you feel you must be seen, please speak to the receptionist who can update the GP.
