We now have flu vaccines available for all patients eligible over the age of 18. If you are over 65 or have a long term condition such as diabetes, heart disease or COPD please call to make an appointment.
If you are a carer for someone it may also be advisable to have a flu vaccination if the person you care for is at risk but please note if you are a paid carer, this should be assessed and undertaken by your employer's Occupational Health Service.
Flu vaccine for under 18s is now in
Please allow at least 48 hours for us to process your request for repeat prescriptions however you ask for them but please do not request them more than 7 days in advance as they are likely to be rejected. If you are going away and are making an early request, please allow 5-7 days to ensure you have your medication in good time.
On the Day Telephone Consultations - Help us to Help you.
Please note these are for URGENT problems - and if you consider your problem is urgent you should be available to answer the phone as soon as the doctor calls you and be available to attend the Surgery if the doctor feels he/she needs to examine you.
If this is not possible then your call is probably not urgent and you should book a routine appointment or use the e-Consult/Web GP button on this screen as an alternative method of contacting the GP direct.
Currently a lot of time and resource is wasted with calls not being answered the first time the doctor calls.
