Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier

We are sorry for the inconvenience being caused for our patents trying to contact the practice by telephone recently. You may have found that trying to reach us first thing on a Monday morning has been particularly difficult.
Like many GP practices in Lancashire, our telephone system is run by a local NHS IT provider who are aware of these issues.
We want to assure you these problems have been escalated and explain that fixing them is not in our control, so please be patient with us whilst they are being addressed.
We have been told that over the next few weeks, a short term fix is being put in place that should ensure our telephone systems can stay online during very busy periods. In the longer term, we know that upgrades are being made to the system that should fully resolve the problems.
Remember, there are other ways that you can contact the practice. Please review our web pages as this is where we will provide you with the most up to date methods of contacting us or where appropriate other alternatives exist such as:-
MyGp or PatientAccess ; an app that you may have already downloaded (if not please do so if you can and follow the instructions for use) which you can use to book appointments, or order your prescriptions.
As usual, you should dial 999 in an emergency and can access NHS111 or your local pharmacy for advice.
