Seasonal Flu Vaccination

The winter vaccination programme has started. If you are eligible for a free flu vaccine, you will get a letter from NHS Scotland. This will either give you an appointment date and time at one of the flu vaccination clinics in Lothian, or instruct you to make an appointment using an online portal.

If you are eligible for a COVID booster, you may get this at the same time as your flu jab, but this is not guaranteed, and you may have to attend two separate appointments.

You will not get your flu or COVID jabs at your GP practice. Please do not contact the surgery about your flu or COVID jab appointments.

If you have received a letter with an appointment that you are unable to attend, you can rearrange your appointment online here.  Alternatively you can call the vaccination helpline on 0800 030 8013 for assistance with re-booking.

If you are housebound, your jabs will be given to you by the housebound team, and they will be in touch to arrange this.

Online Service - Getting Started

heart_and_cardiogramIt will be necessary initially for you to register to use the internet appointment booking facility. Ask the receptionist for a registration form (one registration form for each adult and child, 6 yrs and over, in the household), which provides the information you need to register to use the internet facility. 

Once the registration process is complete, you can log onto the appointments system using your individual patient identifying number and password, and be able to view appointments you have already made, cancel them if necessary, and book an appointment with your doctor after checking the times available.

This system is fully encrypted ensuring access to a remote highly secure site managed by EMIS, not at the practice, so there is no possibility of unauthorised access to clinical data.

***Please note, we have temporarily withdrawn our online appointment system in light of the pandemic - when routine face to face appointments are available again we will reinstate this service.***
