Breaking News !!!

Flu Clinic – Saturday 12th October 2019 - 9am until 10.30am.

We are texting our patients advising of the time to attend.  Do we have your up to date mobile telephone number.  If you do not use a mobile phone please drop in if you are eligible. 

Please could I ask that all patients who are due a flu vaccine this year, support their GP Practice. Our clinicians have updates each year; know how to deal with you in an anaphylactic emergency; we have infection control audits each year to ensure our premises are fit for purpose. If you choose to go elsewhere for your flu vaccine, then GPs could be left with fridges full of vaccines that they have already ordered and paid for and that is a big waste of money, not only for the GPs but for the NHS as a whole.

Practice Staff Training Date - Practice Closed on Tuesday 8.10.19 and 5.11.19 from 1.00pm until 6.30pm.  If you have an appointment booked please press the intercom on your arrival.  If you require medical assistance urgently during this time please ring the normal surgery number 0114 2488187 and you will be put through to the out of hours service, or alternatively call 111.
