Seasonal

We run the following seasonal services:

Flu is a serous viral disease. Healthcare professionals know that flu can be more serious in elderly people, or those with long-term medical conditions, because their bodies are not always strong enough to fight -off the infection. Sadly, each year, some people actually die from flu.

If you fall in to one of the following categories you are entitled to a free flu vaccination. Please ring the surgery on 01530 242313 during September to book an appointment.
