The administering of the flu vaccine this year will be very different. Vaccinations will start from 01/10/2020 and will be arranged and given via NHS Lanarkshire. All eligible patients will be sent a letter from NHS Lanarkshire with an appointment date and time when to attend. All patients eligible will be sent a letter for an appointment.
If the appointment time you are allocated is not suitable, you should NOT phone the Practice, but phone the Referrals Line on 01698 687456 to reschedule.
What’s happening in Lanarkshire?
