Flu season is almost here! Due to the need for social distancing, we will be running our clinics as appointment only. These will take place on Saturday mornings and afternoons and Thursday mornings. We will contact you by letter with your appointment, and instructions for the day. You will still be able to have your flu vaccination if you have a pre-booked appointment with the doctor, nurse or healthcare assistant. Our first clinic will be Saturday 19th September, invites for that day are in the post!
Wearing a mask in an enclosed space is now mandatory in England. People with certain conditions are exempt. Please download and keep one of these cards if exemption applies to you.

If you are in danger and unable to talk on the phone, call 999 and listen to the questions from the operator and if possible, respond by coughing or tapping the head set.
Call 999 from a mobile
If prompted, press 55 to Make yourself heard and this will transfer your call to the police.
Pressing 55 only works on mobiles and does not allow police to track your location.
Call 999 from a landline
If only background noise can be heard and operators cannot decide whether an emergency service is needed, then you will be connected to a police call handler.
If you replace the handset, the landline may remain connected for 45 seconds in case you pick up again.
When 999 calls are made from landlines, information about your location should be automatically available to the call handlers to help provide a response.
