Flu Vaccinations:
We have received our first batch of flu vaccines and now in a position to run our 1st group of flu clinics on Thursday 23rd September, Thursday 30th September and Saturday 2nd October. These clinics will be for FLU ONLY and we are commencing initially by inviting our over 70’s, 16+ at high risk, HSC workers and pregnant women, followed by further age groups as we work through our patient lists. Patients will start to receive appointment letters/texts over the coming days inviting them to book into these clinics. We will be inviting around 700 patients to these clinics, so please allow us time to make contact and keep our phone lines clear for those who require medical assistance.

COVID Boosters:
We are still awaiting final JCVI guidance and have no further information at this time.

We are very grateful to our patients who have continued to wear masks when visiting the practice. We have kept this measure in place along with social distancing in our main reception and treatment rooms to keep staff and patients safe. We thank you for your co-operation.

New staff:
We have a number of new staff members who have joined us recently at our Practice. They are currently in training, so it may take them a little longer than usual to assist you. We thank you for your patience whilst they get settled in their roles. Please note: We cannot respond to individual medical questions or complaints via social media.

Thank you
Shap Medical Team
