Flu vaccination campaign 2021/22

We have had an overwhelming response from our patients since the start of our Flu vaccination programme back in Sept/Oct. Well done to all who have so far had their vaccine.

We have sent invitation to all known eligible patients and encourage you to get in touch should you still require an appointment.
