Flu Vaccination
Dear Patients

This is information about this year's flu vaccination campaign during the Covid pandemic. All patients will be invited to a specific appointment to comply with Infection Control. The first clinics will be on weekend days for our most vulnerable shielded patients. After these clinics , the remaining patients will receive a text or letter confirming the time slot and date, during September to November. There will be a further general text or letter with more information in the next month. We have approximately 2000 patients to vaccinate out of a total of 9000 in the practice.



We are an IRIS (Identification and Referral to Improve Safety) practice which means you can talk to our doctors, nurses and other staff working here, if you are being hurt or controlled by your current or ex-partner or are afraid of someone at home or a member of your family.

The IRIS service is for all patients and staff, both women and men who are aged 16 or over. 

Social isolation can increase stress at home, impacting on you and your family’s well-being and so, we are here to help you.

Please contact us for help and advice, and you will then be referred to our  IRIS worker known as the IRIS Advocate Educator.

You can also self-refer by ringing the IRIS office directly on 0161 820 8416 between 9:00am and 4:30pm.

In an emergency call the Police on 999.
