IMPORTANT NOTICE - DELAY TO FLU VACCINE DELIVERY
Unfortunately many flu jab appointments are having to be rescheduled because of an unavoidable delay in the delivery of the vaccines to GPs.
The UK’s main supplier has said there may be hold-ups of around a fortnight because of "unforeseen challenges linked with road freight delays". While they are working hard to resolve the issue we have had to postpone the flu clinics and will arrange these as soon as we can.
Apologies for this inconvenience.

Important Patient Notice
We have been made aware of some inaccurate information circulating on social media regarding special 'rescue packs' for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Please do not contact your GP practice for a rescue pack. You should continue to manage your condition in the usual way and if you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, go to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 before doing anything else.
