The surgery is now able to offer all our at-risk patients aged between 50 and 64 the flu vaccination, this is highly recommended. We would urge you to call the surgery, if you have not already done so to book an appointment.

Covid Vaccination


As we enter this current national lockdown the staff at Meadowside Medical centre are actively involved in the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccine. The government have prioritised the vaccination of everyone in the 4 most vulnerable groups within the next 6-8 weeks. This is a massive undertaking. As such we ask for your support in only contacting us for urgent clinical problems or symptoms that are concerning you. This includes symptoms that you worry may be cancer.  We are suspending some routine work including routine blood tests, allowing us to prioritise the vaccine roll out, continuation of childhood vaccinations, cervical screening, and management of patients with new or worrying symptoms. We also need to limit the footfall through the practice to maintain safety for patients and staff. We will review this in line with government review of lockdown, but ask for your support and help in only contacting us when absolutely necessary.
