Influenza Immunisation

From October to January every year we offer a free flu immunisation to all our patients over the age of 65 and to those in clinical ‘At-Risk’ groups (i.e. asthmatics, diabetics, patients suffering from heart or renal disease).

If you are eligible, our administrative team will contact you each year by text message, phone or letter to offer you an appointment. We hold special Saturday Flu clinics as well as early morning and late evening clinics to ensure that all our eligible patients can attend at a time that works for them.

We are unable to provide flu immunisations privately so if you do not fall into one of the NHS eligible groups, we will be unable to provide you with your flu jab. Local pharmacies such as Northcote Pharmacy provide a private flu immunisation programme.
