Flu Clinics 2018


Saturday 10th November at Kingskerswell 08:30-11:30am - Drop in.

Saturday 17th November at Ipplepen 08:30-11:30am - Drop in.

Dear Patient, We would like to provide an update to our patients on this year’s seasonal flu vaccination campaign. Unfortunately unlike previous years, this has been organisationally very complex for the practice to organise due to delays in manufacturing and a requirement from NHS England and Public Health that different age groups of patients are vaccinated with different types of vaccines. This has resulted in our Saturday drop in clinics being little later in the Autumn than usual. read more...
