Due to updated recent government guidance, and as from the 15th June 2020 :
ALL patients entering clinical premises should now wear a face covering.

FLU CLINICS 2020/21
We will be holding walk through clinics at the surgery on a Saturday. These will be by appointment only and we will contact you to make an appointment. There a 2 vaccines this year, one for the over 65's and one for the under 65's at risk groups. Due to the staggered delivery of these vaccines, which is unfortunately beyond our control, we only have the over 65's vaccine at present so this group will be targeted first. As soon as we receive delivery of the vaccine for the under 65's at risk groups we will be in contact with you to make an appointment.
We will be operating a one way system throughout the surgery to ensure social distancing measures are enforced , hand sanitizer and masks will be provided on entry.
If you have been previously shielding and do not wish to enter the premises we can a offer a car appointment where you will be vaccinated in the car park and will not be asked to leave your car , please advise reception if this is your preferred option.
We have had an increase in requests from patients for letters of exemption to wearing face masks in various public settings.
Our response follows the UK Government guidance, which is supported by the British Medical Association:
The Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption direct with the person questioning them (eg bus driver).
Practices are therefore not required to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions, or to those who do not fall under the list of exemptions.
For more information please see the gov.uk website and TFL websites here:
