Flu Clinic

The practice has now completed the annual flu clinic but if you are eligible for a flu injection you can still book an appointment with one of our reception team.

The injected flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to people who are at risk. This is to ensure they are protected against catching flu and developing serious complications.

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 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.

Medical examinations for particular purposes such as HGV, Taxi Licence, Insurance etc can be arranged by appointment.

These examinations are usually chargeable and our fee is usually that which is recommended by the BMA. Please ask our reception staff if you are unsure whether the service you wand incurs a fee or not. We will always tell you how much the fee is before you receive the treatment.

Some non-NHS services involve the purchase of expensive drugs or medicines which we would have to order in on an individual patient basis. In these circumstances you may be asked to pay for your treatment in advance. 

Travel

We also offer a travel vaccination service. Some of the vaccines required for travel abroad may not be part of NHS services and as such will be chargeable. The cost may vary depending upon the type of vaccination required. Please speak to the Nurse if you wish to discuss your travel vaccine needs.

Please allow enough time for the vaccine to work before you travel abroad. If you are unsure how long you will need please ask the Nurse. If you do not give us enough notice we may not be able to administer the vaccine in time.
