Don't forget to allow plenty of time for your repeat prescription to be processed over the holiday period. We need a minimum of 2 working days so we can arrange for the doctor to make the checks necessary to ensure your safety.
Free Flu Vaccination!!!
We have now completed our programme of flu clinics for the year, with over 2,500 patients receiving the vaccine. If you missed your appointment, or did not receive your invitation letter, please call the surgery to make an appointment with the nurse.
Before doing this, please check you are eligible to receive a free injection. Details are available here. We are required to check the patient is eligible before giving the injection; and we do have to turn away a few each year who are not entitled to this free service under the NHS.
As your family doctor, we have been providing flu vaccinations for many years; and this is an important part of the coordinated package of healthcare we provide for our patients.

Whenever we do something for you, you are entitled to apply "the Friends & Family Test" by answering the simple question: “How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they need similar care or treatment?” All GP practices in England are introducing this test as a quick and simple way of collecting patient feedback to improve services.
You can pick up a form in the surgery for this, or complete the test using our automated check-in screen. But you may prefer to do this online following the link below. You can also view the results!
