The flu season is about to start and this year, more than any other year, all patients who are eligible are encouraged to have their flu vaccination.  Letters inviting patients to the flu clinics are being sent out week commencing 28th September 2020.  If you are unable to attend the date you have been allocated, please let us know by email if possible.  Please do not call us to book an appointment for your flu vaccination as we will not be taking bookings until the main flu clinics have been completed (with the exception of nasal flu vaccinations for eligible children).  For more information, click here to view the patient information leaflet.
