Influenza Vaccination 2020

Are you aged 65 and above OR under 65 at risk ? *Please note this does not currently include the new government COVID-19 risk groups and further information will follow for these patients*. 

If so you are eligible for a free flu vaccination and we would like to invite you to book an appointment at one of the following clinics:

For patients 65 years and over ONLY (due to scheduled vaccine delivery dates)

Saturday 26th September 2020 - 08:30 to 17.00 - PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOW FULLY BOOKED

Saturday 10th October 2020 - 08:30 to 17:00 - a limited number of appointments still available 

For patients under 65 years at risk ONLY (due to scheduled vaccine delivery dates)  

Saturday 24th October 2020 - 8:30 to 11.30

Saturday 14th November 2020 - 8:30 to 11.30

To make your appointment: please click the 'Book an appointment' tab at the top of the screen. Follow the log in instructions, select the week the date of your chosen clinic is scheduled, then scroll down for the available flu appointments. Alternatively you can speak to a receptionist to book an appointment. 

 

Please note that people in the 50-64 year old age group (who are not in an at risk group), will not be vaccinated until November and December. Providing there is sufficient vaccine available appointments will be offered at this time.

This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 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.

 

PLEASE NOTE: We are not providing a drop in clinic this year due to COVID-19

CARE NAVIGATION

The right care from the right person, first time

When you ring to book an appointment, you might notice our reception team will ask you for a brief outline of how we can help you.

This is because we have introduced something called Care Navigation. It means our reception team has been trained to ensure they can help you to find the best service for your needs, so you can receive the right care more quickly. Anything you share with our team will be kept confidential.

Through this specialist training, our team will be able to direct you to the most appropriate clinician or service for your needs.

 

Our reception team will never offer clinical advice. Instead, this new way of working is about offering you the choice to see more appropriate professionals in our practice team or even somewhere else. If they can deal with the problem directly, it will often be quicker and means you may not need to see a GP at all.

By working this way, it helps to free-up time for GPs to care for patients with complex or serious health conditions that can only be managed by a doctor. More importantly though, it means people are seen first by the clinician that is best placed to help you with your health needs.

HELPING YOU TO CHOOSE

This choice is always yours though. It is completely up to you if you want to share information with our reception team.

You will never be refused a GP appointment but we hope next time you contact our practice and speak with our reception team you will see the value of seeing another healthcare professional if they are able to help.

You can find out more about Care Navigation by taking a look at our frequently asked questions, by picking up a leaflet or by speaking to a member of our practice team.
