Flu Vaccinations 2020 - Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and 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 aiming to start Flu clinics from 18th September for over 65 groups please contact the surgery if you are eligible for a vaccination and from 30th September for patients 18-64 in vulnerable group.
If you have a fever and/or a persistent cough, or loss of taste and or smell please do not come to the practice- please self isolate for 7 days.

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is published and the required disclosure is shown below. However, it should be noted that the prescribed method of calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices. The average earnings for GPs working in the Concord Medical Practice in the last financial year (2018/19) was £112,657 before taxation and national insurance. This is for 3 full time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
