UPDATE 04.09.21 Influenza Vaccine Delivery Issues

Clinics booked for 18th September for the 65 years and overs is cancelled. The message received from the supplier is "due to unforeseen road freight challenges, there will be a delay to the scheduled delivery by one to two weeks." 

Once the Surgery knows more and has a confirmed date, we can once again rebook appointments. Until then all patients booked into the 18th September are cancelled and this may possibly effect the 25th September. Once we know more we will update you. 

We realise what a huge inconvenience this is to you, as well as to the Surgery. Please bear with us - as soon as we have a clear confirmed date we will be contacting again to rebook.
Thank you for your continued support
