Dear patients, if you are unable to attend for flu vaccine on these days, please speak to reception staff, we are happy to accommodate when convenient for you.  

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

NHS England have issued guidance to GP practices about the use of online appointments in relation to the current coronavirus outbreak.

Online access for GP appointments is removed due to Coronavirus. So Sorry for any inconvenience caused. 

In order to protect patients, all unnecessary visits to the surgery are to be avoided. You can no longer book a face to face routine appointment without speaking to a clinician. Telephone consultations will be available via our reception. Please kindly allow up to 48 hours to receive a call back due to volume of calls.

Telephone triage will be available for urgent medical problems that cannot wait until the next telephone consultation.

If you are displaying flu like symptoms, please access NHS 111 services online or via telephone, as this WILL NOT be managed by the medical centre. We appreciate your patience at this challenging time at Shaftesbury Medical Centre.
