IMPORTANT: FLU VACCINES FOR 50-65 YEAR OLDS (not otherwise eligible)

The national press has this morning (Friday 20th November) reported the confirmed roll out of the above extended flu vaccination programme from December 1st. We were not given any prior notice of this announcement and therefore do not have our additional vaccine supply or clinic schedules in place yet.

Please bear with us whilst we clarify the exact details. To allow us time to organise the logistics of the delivery of this important vaccination programme, we respectfully request that you do not contact the surgery to request to book your vaccine at this time.

We will update this message as soon as possible, once our additional vaccination clinics are available to book.

We are aware many of you have already expressed your interest in having this vaccination via a previous text message contact. We will contact you to schedule your vaccination soon.

Thank you for your understanding.

Home Visits

Doctor's bagWhilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:00.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
