Seasonal Flu Clinics 

The seasonal flu programme will begin in September.  You can find out if you're in a priority group for the vaccine on NHS Inform

We are waiting for more details on the vaccination programme from NHS Lothian but we do know that:

  • You will be given your vaccine at a clinic set up to vaccinate large numbers of people quickly
  • You will be given a pre-booked appointment or invited to arrange your own appointment
  • All eligible 2-5 year olds will be sent an appointment by post
  • All school children (primary and secondary) will be offered vaccination at school 
  • "At risk" children will be contacted by the Edinburgh Vaccination Team to arrange an appointment

As soon as we have more information, we will post it on the website and the NHS Inform website will be updated regularly.  Please don't contact the practice as we have no more information to give at present.

Self-Assessment: If you are not sure whether you are stressed or anxious or depressed, or how much you are dealing with, why not take a simple on-line test and see for yourself.

If the scores are high, please consult your GP.
