FLUATHON - Sat October 13 at THAXTED DAY CENTRE  

Appointments now available for our annual Fluathon.  Because of building work, Fluathon is in Thaxted Day Centre this year. You are eligible for a free NHS flu vaccine if you are 65 or over, pregnant, a carer, or have a long-term condition.  

Half-Marathon Raising Funds to Equip our new Extension.   A patient is running the Windsor marathon for us in September. To donate via Just Giving, click here

Our thanks to rrt, whose burger lunch raised £2,720 and to the residents of Vicarage Mead who raised £622 with their coffee morning.

Building Work Commences 17 September.   The first few weeks are likely to be noisy.

We will do what we can to use the quieter rooms, but please bear with us.  We can offer quieter evening and weekend appointments at Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow.

Thaxted Surgery has again been rated best in West Essex - 2018 National Patient Survey

Thank you for your continued support and please bear with us through a difficult period of building.
