Flu Clinics 2021

Help us to help you beat the flu!

Despite it being the summer, here at Longrove Surgery, we are actively planning our flu clinics . We always adopt a proactive approach to planning our flu clinics and if you are eligible for a FREE flu vaccine, then we will soon be in touch to invite you to make an appointment for your vaccination.

Longrove Surgery is THE best place for you to have your vaccination and here’s why:

  • We know you and understand any specific needs you may have
  • We can use the time opportunistically to remind you of any important health related matters that may be of relevance to you
  • We continually strive to increase the uptake of the vaccination and our ambition is to ensure that at least 80% of eligible patients are vaccinated
  • We run our flu clinics in line with the National flu campaign, aiming to complete flu vaccinations as early in the season as possible; this helps reduce the number of patients who may catch influenza

The NHS belongs to all of us; we are all part of the NHS family, and you, our patients are at the heart of everything we do. So this year, help us to help you and protect you from the flu.
