Flu can be a very unpleasant illness for children with potentially serious complications, including bronchitis and pneumonia.

The nasal spray flu vaccine has very few side effects - the main one is getting a runny nose for a few days after vaccination.

For children registered at the Practice please call the appointment line to book.

BOOKING APPOINTMENTS

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT BEFORE 8am

Please let us know if you need to cancel your appointment

On just one day this week 5 patients failed to turn up for appointments they had booked with our Practice Nurses. This is a frequent occurrence. You will appreciate that this is a serious waste of their time.  If you have an appointment booked with either a nurse or a doctor and you cannot attend please let us know so that this appointment can be offered to someone else. Thank you.
