Flu Vaccinations at Pharmacies and Supermarkets: If you are considering attending a pharmacy or supermarket for your flu vaccine please be aware that the vaccination you will receive from the surgery is a quadrivalent vaccine which protects you against FOUR different strains of vaccine. Vaccines given elsewhere may be a trivalent vaccine which only protect against three strains of influenza.
IMPORTANT: On Thursday 6th October there will be no doctor or nurse appointments available and a telephone triage system will be operating for urgent problems only that cannot wait until the following day.
At Layer Road surgery in Colchester the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, childhood vaccinations, travel vaccinations, phlebotomy and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
