FLU 50 - 64 Year Olds

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Our patients can now be seen for routine GP appointments in new GP centres at Queen Mary's Hospital and Erith Hospital from 18:30-20:00 weekdays and 8:00-20:00 weekends and bank holidays. You will be seen by a local GP who with your consent will have access to your medical records and we will receive full details of the consultation automatically. However if you have opted-out for your medical information to be shared you will not be able to use this service unless you opt back in. If this is the case please let reception know. These appointments should not be used for follow-up appointments as continuity of care is important. These appointments are booked by your GP surgery ONLY. Please ask at reception for further details.
