Appointments

We operate the Advanced Access system at the surgery. You can telephone at any time during surgery hours to book an appointment in advance-that is, not for that day. We shall endeavour to give you an appointment with the clinician of your choice but this will not always possible. If you feel you need to see a doctor or nurse on that day, our reception staff will take some brief details and you will be offered a call back from one of our clinicians, who will discuss matters with you and will offer you an appointment later that day if there is a medical need for you to be seen. Please be aware that our telephone number may not be displayed on your phone when you are called back and should not be mistaken for a cold call or sales call.

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
