flu vaccines for those aged over 65
You will have heard through the media that there is a national shortage of the over 65 flu vaccine. This is now impacting on us and as a consequence the vaccination clinic planned for 22 November will now only be for those under 65s who are at risk.
We are now prioritsing those aged over 65 who have additional health problems that make them at more risk from flu, and will contact you individually if you fall into this category to arrange for you to receive the vaccine.
new evening and weekend services
A new evening and weekend service is now available, for those wanting to see a GP, Physiotherapist, Nurse, or Health Care Assistant in the evening (6.30 - 9.30pm) and at weekends (10am - 1pm). These are provided outside Bingley Medical Practice, the nearest location being Shipley Medical Practice.
