I live in London and would like to get vaccinated for swine flu. I am not in a "high risk" group. How can I do this?

As far as I can tell, in the UK the swine flu jab has only been offered to people considered "high risk". I don't fall into any of the official "high risk" categories, but would like to get immunised anyway. It seems that the UK has a surplus of vaccine but for some reason isn't offering it to the general public.
I have an appointment with my GP on Monday, and will definitely be asking her about this, but I when I asked last year, I was just told I wasn't eligible. I am happy to purchase the vaccine if necessary - I understand this option is available for the usual seasonal flu jab? I'd appreciate some advice, even if it's just about how to talk to my doctor about the issue.
