FLU UPDATE

For safety of both patients and staff we are unable to safely run clinics in the surgery.  In line with Scottish Goverment advice the local HSCP will be running central flu clinics. These are planned to be in Clydebank.  This means there will be NO flu clinics at the Medical Practice this year. If you are eligible you will receive a letter of invitation over the next few weeks.  Those initially eligible are those patients aged 65 or over and those under 65 with underlying health conditions.  These clinics will run in October.   Those aged 55-65 with no underlying health conditions are also eligible, however clinics for these patients will not start until November.

You will receive a letter with a confirmed appointment date and time.  If you are unable to attend please call 0141 201 4180  Please note you will then be recalled later in the year  We strongly advise you to make all efforts to attend the scheduled appointment.

Please note we are aware there is a centrally generated letter advising of the up coming flu campaign advising you to visit the NHS Inform website  YOu will also receive a letter with an appointment, this may not arrive for 3-4 weeks.  Please be patient
