Between the months of September – March the flu vaccine program is offered ever year through the NHS to help protect people at risk of getting seriously ill from flu, we are currently running flu clinics at our surgery.

You can get the vaccine for free if you’re:

•             65 or over

•             from 18 to 64, with an underlying health condition

•             pregnant

•             a carer

•             Frontline health and social care workers

If you’re not in one of these groups but think you need the vaccine, contact us. We may still be able to give you the vaccine.

  • We have a clinic on Saturday the 7th October for anyone over the age of 65years

To book your vaccine, you can:

•             call the surgery

•             ask in-person at reception

We will attempt to send all eligible patients a text with an invite/booking link (Patient Support: How to book an appointment with your practice using your Accurx link | Accurx Help Centre) for our clinic’s, please ensure your telephone details that we hold for you are correct.
