It is very important that you protect yourself with a ‘flu vaccine, even if you feel hale and hearty, and we ask that you make an appointment to have this done at the Surgery.

It is equally important to let us know if you do not wish to have a ‘flu vaccination and we would be grateful if you inform Reception on (019755) 62253 so that we can record this in your notes.

Please keep an eye on this page (https://www.facebook.com/alfordmedicalpractice/), the Practice website (alfordmedicalpractice.co.uk) and posters in the surgery for up to date information about upcoming clinics.
