Flu Campaign 2020

We would like to inform our patients that because of the current pandemic there will be some adjustments this year to flu clinics and the booking system to ensure the safety of patients and staff.

Please note the flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19 so government guidance needs to be followed for this.

ALL flu bookings this year will require an appointment, and this time must be adhered to. We will be unable to accommodate opportunistic walk-in vaccinations, and priority will be given to the most vulnerable patients in the first instance. Saturday clinics will be running, but these will be booked for allocated time slots.

The first clinic will be SATURDAY 19TH September 2020 starting at 10 am.

In the first instance, we will be inviting People aged 65 and over by 31st March 2021 i.e. born before 1st April 1956

Please ring the surgery to book an appointment.

Important Notice: Late arrivals

Given the demands on doctors' and nurses' time, we cannot guarantee you will be seen if you arrive beyond the appointed time.

If you are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment, you will be asked to re-book your appointment. This is to ensure we provide the best service possible and so that all patients get a fair opportunity to discuss their problems.

Appointments not Attended

We would like to remind the 230 patients who booked an appointment to be seen in December 2019 but failed to either attend the appointment or cancel it, that they can contact us on 02920 353020 to cancel their appointment. 27 patients missed their appointment last week.

Patients who miss appointments increase the time it takes for all of our patients to book a routine appointment as they usually rebook the missed appointment.

Patients who persistently miss appointments, without a valid reason, will be asked to register with a different doctor’s surgery.

We are now providing Nexplanon (Implants) to patients of City Road, Roathwell & Albany Road surgeries as well as our own patients, and accept self-referrals. Please see link below for a self-referral form.
