Noticeboard

We are terribly sorry and disappointed to have had to cancel our planned flu clinic for the 50-64year olds this Wednesday 25th. We have the vaccine and staff ready and organised for your appointments. NHS England however, have refused permission to allow clinics to be run before 1st December, for contractual reasons.

We have taken this as high as we can as we feel we / our patients are being penalised for efficiency.

We can only apologise and we have rebooked you all- texts sent. Please only contact reception if the new appointment isn’t suitable.

FLU VACCINE:  As you are aware this year the influenza vaccine is being made available to all patients aged between 50 and 64 years old. We have now received our vaccine stocks for this cohort and are able to offer appointments. We will be running clinics on the next Wednesday morning, 2nd December, and Thursday 10th December at our Pitstone branch. If you are registered please book via our online access https://www.patientaccess.com/ or call your surgery (Eds 01525220333 or Pits 01525223211) only between the following times Tues - Fri 10-12 or Mon 11-12 to book an appointment
