For patients who are at risk the best action is to have a flu vaccination every year.

We will NOT be sending out letters to all patients to help minimise waste and impact on our environment; it also helps to reduce administration at the practice.  You may receive a personalised text message on your mobile or telephone call to your home telephone number promoting the service; just follow the instructions given in your message.  Are your contact details up to date with us?

Please telephone the surgery, after 11am (to avoid the busiest times) and select “Appointments” from the list of options to ask our team for an appointment at one of our special flu clinic sessions.

In addition we will be holding flu clinics especially for children, ask our team about these separate clinic dates.

If you are unable to leave your home for medical reasons we can arrange for a District Nurse to administer your flu vaccination at home.

Combe Martin Branch Surgery’s first clinic will be Wednesday 04 October 2017.
