FLU PROGRAMME 2020

Please note: If you have received an invite from the surgery but have already arranged an appointment, there is no need to contact the surgery again and your appointment will still stand. 

The best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated every year.

To accommodate the increasing demand for flu vaccinations this year, and to support safe social distancing, we will be offering patients the opportunity to book an appointment slot at Robin Park Sports Centre for a flu vaccination this year.

Don’t worry if you are unable to travel to Robin Park, you will be able to attend the surgery for your vaccination.

Both sites will only be being offering pre-booked appointments only.  All of these appointments will be made via the practice. We ask that only when you are invited to so you contact the practice, as we are sure you can understand it is not practical for our patients or our practice for all patients to attempt to contact at the same time. Our invites will be sent via mobile text message or letter.

A variety of days and times will be available at both sites.

The purpose of the vaccination Centre at Robin Park is to allow additional availability for our patients to be vaccinated earlier in the season. This site is intended for eligible patients who have relatively good health and are able to attend the alternative site. Patients who are more vulnerable will be asked to attend the surgery.

When contacting the practice to book your appointment our team will ask a small series of questions to help ensure you are directed to the most appropriate clinic for your needs.

Please note these clinics are only for adult flu vaccinations and further information will follow regarding the child nasal flu programme.
