Parkbury House encourage you to attend for your free flu vaccination at the Surgery as opposed to using alternative private providers. Having your flu vaccination at the surgery allows us to keep an accurate record of your vaccination and health information, offer clinical support and ensures we can provide this service year after year. Flu vaccinations are provided by the NHS and a low uptake would affect our ability to provide this and other additional services in future years.
Please support Parkbury House and the future of General Practice in the NHS by having your flu vaccination with your GP Surgery.
