Flu Clinics - Book now!
Posted on 14 Sep 2020
We ran our first flu clinic of 2020 on Saturday and we're pleased to say it was a huge success and patient feedback was overwhelmingly positive!
Here’s what some of our patient’s had to say:
- “I was really impressed with how quick and easy it was. Staff were friendly and efficient, there was no queueing and I was in and out in 2 minutes!”
- “I felt really safe as the vaccination was being given by experienced, qualified staff. I was glad to be supporting my local GP practice!”
- “It was great to be able to come down on a Saturday morning and it was really well organised, so I didn’t even have to wait!”
- “I was struggling to get into the surgery due to mobility problems, so the nurse just came out to my car to give me the vaccination. Everyone was so happy to help. I’m very grateful, thank you.”
