Woodlands Surgery Flu Vaccination Programme 2020

In order to ensure your safety we will be running Saturday clinics for the flu vaccination form October this year. During these clinics we will be operating a one way system through the building to maintain social distancing.

We will be contacting all eligible patients in due course, there is no need to contact us before this time.

When you attend your appointment we ask that you do the following:

  • Please wear a face covering and a short-sleeved top (not applicable to children)
  • Please DO NOT attend if you have the any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, loss of taste/smell. If you are self-isolating, awaiting a Covid-19 test result, your household has suspected Covid-19, or you have travelled to a country under quarantine in the last 14 days you should not attend either.

We look forward to seeing you soon.



Our practice has signed up to SystmOnline, this service is a patient portal which allows you to book appointments, request prescriptions and if enabled view your medical record.


Patients who wish to use this service will need to come to the surgery with ID so that we can issue you with a username snd password. Unfortunately due to the ongoing pandemic we are asking patients not to attend the surgery and are unable to activate accounts.

Statement of Fitness for Work Certificates

If you have been ill for 7 days or less you do not need to see a Doctor. You can complete a Self-Certification form yourself. 

Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you can download the Self Certification Form. 

If you have been ill for more than 7 days you will need a doctor’s certificate. These certificates are called ‘Fitness To Work’ Certificates.

If you have been ill for more than 7 days, or you are requesting a Fitness for Work Certificate, please call the surgery to arrange an appointment with the Doctor. Alternatively, you can complete our Sick/Fit Note Form.

Travel Health

 We offer a full travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad please complete and submit the travel form in plenty of time (we recommend 6-8 weeks) before your journey. This allows the Nurse to check your reccord and inform you of vaccinations you may/ may not need but also allow us time to order the vaccinations you need.
