Please ask the receptionist for further details on how to book an appointment. During these appointments your health record may be accessed and viewed by clinical staff other than your GP or a GP at your practice.  Please be assured that your confidentially will be maintained; for the service's full Privacy Statement please see 'Patient Information' at www.dlhealth.co.uk."

Seasonal Flu Programme

Childrens flu - for those at risk 

We are starting our childrens flu programme for 2-3 year olds and under 18s at risk. These children will be getting text or letter invitations to book an appointment. 

If your child is in Reception to Year 7 they are eligible for the schools flu vaccination programme and will receive their nasal flu via their school. If you have any queries or concerns about the schools vaccination programme, please talk to the schools flu team on 0333 800 5100.  

Before attending your child's nasal flu immunisation appointment you will need to complete a consent form. This must be done before you go into the clinical room. 

Please read the information about the flu nasal spray Protecting your child against flu

Adults flu - for those at risk or 65 and over. 

We are starting our adults flu programme for those at risk or 65 and over. These people will be getting text or letter invitations to book an appointment. When you book your appointment we will ask you for up to date contact details and permission to text you so that we can send you an appointment reminder by text if you have a mobile phone. We have also been asked to update all our records regarding patients ethnicity this year. 

To ensure patient and staff safety we are running our Saturday flu clinics differently this year. Instead of giving you an appointment with a named clinician we will be booking you into a queue slot. Please come to the surgery at your queue slot time and we will then ask you to wait in a socially distanced queue to check in before then moving into the surgery building for your vaccination. This will be a one way system and you will exit by a different door. 

Please read all the signs that will direct you about where you should go and provide you with additional information. 

Please wear loose clothing so that you can remove outer layers and/or roll up sleeves for your vaccination. 

Please be advised that due to the need to allow for queueing in the car parks, parking will be extremely limited and only available for disabled patients. 

Anyone with disabilities or extreme frailty, who may have problems queueing, should let us know as soon as you arrive so that we can fast track you.

we would kindly ask all patients to be considerate of the fact that we may fast track patients ahead of those in the queue. Not all disabilities are visible and so you may not know the reason why we have fast tracked someone. 

Please do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms

Please wear a face covering. 

Please only attend with one parent or carer if required. 

Please use hand gel before entering the building. 

This is a flu and pneumo vaccination appointment and the clinicians will not be able to discuss any other medical matters with you, but support staff will be on hand to help direct you and answer any queries you may have. 

Adults flu - 50-64 year olds.  

Following Public Health England guidelines we are not yet able to offer this vaccination programme. It is expected that this will be setup and delivered after the completion of the programme for those at risk or 65 and over.
