2020 Flu clinics - contact surgery to book an appointment please

Do not attend if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus, or if you have been told to isolate.

Attend on your own unless you need help with your mobility.

Please arrive on time for your appointment - Do not arrive early or late for your appointment time: we have allocated a strict arrival time of patients to ensure that people are queueing for the minimum amount of time and social distancing is maintained.   Please wear a face covering. 

Once you have sanitised, we encourage you not to touch anything in the practice an follow the instructions for queuing. If you are in a wheelchair or have very limited mobility, please make yourself known to the queue marshal

There will be no chairs available to sit while waiting and you will not be able to sit whilst having the vaccination (for infection control). If you think you will struggle with this, please speak to the queue marshal on arrival.

Wear clothing which makes it easy to expose your upper arm. The vaccinations will be given behind a screen in the waiting room to comply with infection control.

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

PATIENT ON LINE ACCESS - Less time in waiting rooms, less time on hold




Everyone working for the Health Service has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. Confidentiality also extends to family members, therefore medical information relating to you will not be divulged to anyone without your consent.

Your doctor and other health professionals caring for you keep records about the treatment you receive. They may be written down (manual records), or kept on a computer (electronic records).

From 25/5/18 The Data Protection Act of 1998 has been replaced by the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Most of the principles are the same between the two and because the NHS has very strict confidentiality rules the surgery is largely complying with GDPR already. Below are the guiding principles of GDPR.

Data must be processed lawfully, fairly and transparently

It must be collected for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes

It must be limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed.

It must be accurate, kept up to date and stored securely

The practice must comply when patients request copies of their medical records

Where we need your consent to process data, this consent must be informed consent and freely given.

Patients can ask for data to be corrected and can, in certain circumstances, opt out of data being processed. The Practice must notify the Information Commissioner's Office with 72 hours of a data breach.


NB: Some of your personal information may be used for statistical reporting purposes. These reports may also be passed to organisations involved in health and social care research, for example universities. Occasionally and independent check (audit) will take place to make sure your information is being recorded and stored accurately and securely.

On the rare occasions where it is essential to include personal identifiable information, we will ask for your consent before this information is shared.

We may share information with organisations where they contribute to your health and care. These could include other NHS Trusts, national blood services, strategic health authorities, general practitioners, social services, ambulance services, Primary Care Trusts and clinical networks, for example, cancer care alliance.

Details of our processes are available below as four privacy notices and a patient leaflet is also available at Reception in the surgery.
