Our flu & Covid clinics will be running in late September/October as soon as we receive our supply of vaccines. Please support your surgery by having your flu vaccine with us when available. We will be inviting you for a vaccine. Please may we ask that you refrain from ringing the surgery at this time to enquire about the flu vaccine in order to keep telephone lines free.
