Flu Vaccinations 2020

If you have a chronic condition or are aged 65 years and over, please call now to book your flu vaccination. Please be aware that we are changing the way we run the clinics this year due to the ongoing pandemic.

  • There will be very limited parking on the day
  • You must wear a short sleeve top.
  • Vaccination will take place in the waiting room, it is a walk in - walk out clinic.
  • Please make sure you come at the time you are booked and not earlier or later.
  • You must wear a mask at all times, even while queuing.
  • Again, there will be very limited parking on the day

Whilst we’ve received information that all 50-64 year olds may be eligible for a free flu vaccination as part of plans to protect more people against seasonal flu, these free vaccinations will be subject to delivery later in the year. This allows us to focus on those who are in an at risk group, such as pregnant women and people with long term health conditions. They will be given priority and offered the vaccine first.

If you are aged 50-64 and not in one of the at risk categories you will told in the coming months if you will be able to attend for vaccination. If the programme is extended this is likely to be November or December.  Of course if you wish to access a vaccine prior to this date you can pay to have this at your local pharmacy as in previous years, otherwise please wait for more information.

Improved Access

This is a new initiative across Somerset whereby patients can make appointments at extended times (up until 8pm at night Monday-Friday and on Saturday mornings) at other practices across the local area. Practices working together to deliver extended access to appointments are listed on the poster below.

Appointment types will vary, some being face to face and some on the 'phone and there will be a mixture of pre-bookable and same day appointments available across the week. They may be with a doctor but could also be with another healthcare professional such as a primary care practitioner or a nurse. We are keen to balance the importance of continuity of care with convenient access for patients whilst ensuring that the service is safe.

To book an evening or weekend appointment please contact your registered practice during normal opening times, this will help us to signpost you to the most appropriate option for your particular problem. By contacting us we can fully explain the process, ensure that the booking is appropriate (as we hope to be able to meet your needs by offering an appointment with your usual GP) and cover all the relevant information (and consent) that we need to before we book an appointment for you. Further information is shown below.

How do I book an appointment?

If you need to access these appointments then please ring your usual surgery telephone number. The receptionist will be able to advise on appointment availability. 

In the Taunton, Wellington and Wiveliscombe area the following practices are currently involved in this scheme:

  • College Way Surgery
  • Creech Medical Centre
  • Crown Medical Centre
  • French Weir Health Centre
  • Lister House Surgery
  • Luson Surgery
  • Lyngford Park Surgery

  • Quantock Vale Surgery
