Flu Vaccination Clinics
We are now booking appointments for our flu clinics for patients aged 65 and over.
We are holding two clinics one on Saturday 12th September and one on Saturday 19th September.
We will add further clinics once we have received our deliveries of vaccinations for patients that fall within different age/ clinical groups.
All clinics will be run following social distancing rules. Please do not attend early for your appointment as you may have to queue. Can we please ask that you also come prepared with a face covering and minimal clothing on your arms so as not to delay clinics.
We will be updating this message on a regular basis so watch out for new clinic dates and categories of patients that we will be inviting to book an appointment for their vaccination.
Please note do not attend for your appointment if you have developed a cough or temperature.
All the staff at The High Street Surgery would like to thank our patients for their help and assistance during this difficult time we are all going through.
We are continuing to triage all requests for appointments. You will be contacted by a clinician and be given a time to attend the surgery or you may be offered a video consultation.
Following national guidance in June we will be re-introducing some appointments for routine reviews. You will be contacted directly by a member of staff offering you an appointment if required for your review.
When you attend your appointment please wear a suitable face covering. This will ensure that our supply of PPE is always available for the clinical staff.
Please remember to attend your appointment alone. If required your carer can attend with you. For children’s appointments only one parent/carer please. This will help us with social distancing and prevent the waiting room becoming over full.
You can continue to post your routine prescription requests in the post box located outside by the main entrance. Alternatively if you are registered for on-line services please order your repeat medications via the link on this web site. If you would like to register for on-line services please see further information on this below.
Our aim is at all times to keep you the patients safe as well as our staff. To this end we will be asking you to follow the SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES when you attend for your confirmed appointment. There will be signs and floor markings to assist you with this. You will be asked to use the sanitizing hand gel.
