Seasonal Flu Clinics
This year we will be working differently due to the Coronavirus and this will affect how we operate our Flu Clinics. To prevent large queues and to help maintain a safe and efficient clinic for patients and staff alike, we ask that you follow the simple measures we have put in place. Please see the Flu Clinic Section, which can be found in the Services tab above for more information regarding these measures. Our priority remains to keep all staff and patients safe.
The surgery has arranged to hold the following flu clinics and vaccines will be given by appointment only
Monday 14th September - Over 65's Flu Clinic
Thursday 17th September - Child Nasal Flu Clinic
Wednesday 7th October - Over 65's Flu Clinic
Thursday 8th October - Child Nasal Flu Clinic
Friday 9th October - Aged 18-64 At Risk Flu Clinic
Tuesday 13th October - Child Nasal Flu Clinic
Wednesday 14th October - Over 65's Flu Clinic
Further clinics may be added in due course.
In line with Government Guidelines, we aim to extend the vaccine programme to include the 50-64 year old age group subject to vaccine supply. This extension is being phased to allow for the prioritisation of those in at risk groups first.

Information - Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Coronavirus is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. The UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate but the risk to individuals remains low. Health professionals are working to contact anyone who has been in close contact with people who have coronavirus.
The symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a cough
- a high temperature
- shortness of breath
But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.
If you have any of these symptoms, DO NOT go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.
Surgery Coronavirus UpdateAntibody TestBased on current guidance from the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group our surgery is currently NOT able to provide Antibody tests for patients.
For information on the coronavirus outbreak please go to the NHS.UK page on coronavirus or the information on GOV.UK.
We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients, in particular at evenings and weekends. If you would like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask. These appointments may be at a different site; for example, Poole General Hospital.
