The practice team of doctors, nurses, dispensers and administration staff take pride in providing the highest standard of healthcare. Traditional values are combined with modern advances whilst encouraging patients to be active participants in the care they receive. We offer a full range of medical care plus many other extra services that demonstrate our ethos of innovation for patient benefit.
We hope that you will use our website to make the best use of the services we provide.
BOOK YOUR FLU VACCINATION FROM 2ND SEPTEMBER
The flu season is approaching and we are now opening the clinics for patients who are over 65 years of age.
Patients who are entitled to a vaccine because they fall into the 'At Risk' group or are children aged 2 and 3 years of age will be able to have their vaccination but not until late into October due to our supply delivery dates. We will keep you updated when we have confirmation of the exact delivery date.
We are unable to vaccinate you if you do not fall within the below criteria even if we have vaccinated you in previous years. If you think you may be entitled to a vaccination but are unsure please ask for Alison Hunt who will confirm your eligibility.
A flu vaccine is available free on the NHS for:
- Anyone aged over the age of 65
- Pregnant women
- Children & Adults with an underlying health condition such as Diabetes, Respiratory disease, Heart disease, Kidney, Neurological and Liver disease
- Children & Adults with weakened immune systems
- Registered Carers
- Children aged 2 or 3 years old on 31.8.19
We are planning to have completed our over 65's Flu Campaign this year by the end of October. We vaccinate approximately 1800 people against flu each year. The sooner we vaccinate our eligible population the greater we reduce the transmission of flu in the community.
Please do not wait for us to send you a reminder, telephone the team on 01872 863221 and get your slot booked today. Other clinics will also be available during normal surgery hours. If you are visiting the nurse for your Long Term Condition Review or the doctor for a consultation please ask them for your vaccination while you are here.
