Stop Press:

***Many of our patients this year are going to the chemists to get their flu jabs in the belief that this is saving us work. Unfortunately this is one area where our reimbursement from the government is good. When we lose this work to the chemists, it means that the income lost is then not available to fund other areas of work here in the surgery, making it harder to provide. All other things being equal, we would be grateful if you would continue booking your flu jabs through the surgery rather than the pharmacy. Thanks from the Surgery Team.***
