Welcome to Station Road Flu clinics 2020 which due to social distancing measure we will be running them differently this year. Please read all the information below in order to support our staff run as smoothly as possible. We aim to look after each and everyone of you in these challenging times and give you an excellent service.
Saturday 19th September flu clinic, Saturday 26th September and 10th October - 8.30-12pm. Please book your flu jab if you are eligible - see below. Afternoon appointments are also available. Please only contact the surgery once you have been invited via text or letter or call.
There will be further clinic dates in due course. During week days we will also be providing bookable appointments for flu vaccinations for those patients who are eligible. Vaccination against pneumococcal and shingles for eligible age groups are offered in accordance with national guidance. If you are unsure please ask to speak to our Practice Nurse. Nasal flu to give to children aged 2-3 are also available with the practice nurse on a bookable basis.
To Book flu appointment
Book online, or contact our reception team on 01422 410433 after 11am.
Once you have an appointment please follow these instructions on the day -
Do not attend if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus, or if you have been told to isolate. Contact us the following week and we will rebook you when you are able to leave isolation.
Attend on your own unless you need help in mobilising.
Walk to the practice if you are able to.
Do not arrive early or late for your appointment time: we have allocated a strict number of patients per period to ensure that people are queueing for the minimum of time and social distancing is maintained.
Please wear a face covering. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, please be prepared to provide evidence of this.
Due to infection control we will be holding it in the staff car park this year so will not be able to sit whilst waiting but will be asked to queue in orderly way.
Please follow the instructions for queueing. The queue will be controlled to ensure social distancing. If you are in a wheelchair or have very limited mobility, please make it known to the staff member managing the queue.
Please come prepared with an umbrella in case of rain as the queue will be outside for a short period of time.
Wear clothing which makes it easy to expose your upper arm.
Please heed the instructions of the staff who are supervising the patient flow – they are there for your safety.
