Flu Season

We are planning for this winter's flu vaccinations and expect clinics to be very different this year. We will have more information in late August on how we can safely and effectively administer vaccines to eligible patients.
Our phone lines are very busy as patients catch up with their healthcare checks and clinics that we had to postpone during lockdown so please don't call us to ask about flu jabs at this time.
We will post further updates later in August when we know more.
