FLU Clinics 2020

Flu vaccination will be available from the end of September from your GP surgery for those aged over 65, adults living with chronic diseases, those who were shielding and the household members of those who were shielding.   We strongly recommend that you take up this opportunity to protect your own health.

If you have registered for online ordering of your prescriptions at www.patientservices.co.uk, you can also book your flu appointment online the same way.  If not already registered, why not do this now?

Or phone the surgery on 01307 463558 – please try to phone us from 10am till 1pm, or 2pm till 4pm any working day.

Book an appointment at a flu clinic here in Ravenswood Surgery on one of the following dates:

If you prefer to book a weekday, daytime appointment, we can book you in to be seen at Whitehills for this – this is not a “drop-in, you must book first through ourselves.

For adults aged 55 to 64 with no chronic diseases – you may be invited to attend later in the year.  Please keep an eye on NHS Inform or our website for guidance.  Alternatively, private flu vaccinations at a small cost (roughly £10) can be arranged with many chemists.

We are making every attempt to keep our Practice free from Covid and so please understand that things will not be quite as they used to be.  We are trying to keep your visit time to a minimum, and to avoid you touching surfaces that other patients have touched.

When arriving for your pre-booked appointment:

Do not attend if you have a new continuous cough, fever or loss of smell/taste.

Wear a face covering at all times within the Practice.

Please be prepared to confirm your name and Date of Birth to the person at the front door.

Please be prepared to confirm whether you have any Covid systems to the person at the front door.

Wait till your appointment time before approaching the door. Wait in your car till then if the weather is bad.

If a queue forms at the door, keep an appropriate distance and wear a face covering.

If you bring a family member/helper, make this clear to the person on the door and stay close to your helper.

If weather permits, remove coat etc before entry; leave your coat and bags in your car if you can.

You will be invited in when the vaccinator is ready, and taken directly to your vaccinator.  

Please be prepared to stand for the short time required to have your details taken and the vaccination given.

The public toilet will not be available during the flu clinic.

The waiting room will not be available during the flu clinic.

You will be asked to leave by our fire exit at the far end of the building.
