We would like to reassure our patients that we are working hard in making arrangements to have flu clinics in September and October that will observe all the current procedures for social distancing and protection. They will be organised very differently to those our patients are used to. We are committed to ensuring that our patients get timely treatment and care, and that we can give that in the safest possible conditions to keep both our patients and our staff safe. We will be contacting you soon if you are eligible for a flu vaccination – we will be concentrating on the patients who would normally be eligible – ie aged 65 and over, 18 to 65 with a long term condition, carers, patients and their families who are immunocompromised etc. We have not yet been notified by the NHS about the plans for the recently announced extended group of patients who will be eligible (50 and over). Please watch this space and we will keep updating as we know more.
