New Appointment System

When you call for a doctor’s appointment, you will be asked whether your need is:

URGENT, ACUTE OR ROUTINE

In order to help categorise your appointment, and ensure you see the most appropriate person, the receptionist may ask you if you can share the nature of the problem or issue. Please be assured that this information will be treated confidentially.

Named GP  

 

If you would like to know who your named Doctor is please ask reception when you next visit the surgery.

FLU Clinics

Flu clinics are now available.  Please call or book online.

You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you

  • are 65 years of age or over   
  • are pregnant 
  • have certain medical conditions 
  • are very overweight
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility 
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill 
  • are a front-line health and social care worker.  It is your employer's responsibility to arrange vaccination for you

 65s and over and the flu jab

You are eligible for the flu vaccine this year (2016-17) if you are aged 65 and over on March 31 2017 – that is, you were born on or before March 31 1952. So, if you are currently 64 but will be 65 on March 31 2017, you do qualify.

Pregnant women and the flu jab

If you're pregnant, you're advised to have the injectable flu vaccine, regardless of the stage of pregnancy you've reached.

That's because there's strong evidence to suggest pregnant women have an increased risk of developing complications if they get flu.
