FLU VACCINATION CLINICS FROM 22ND SEPTEMBER 2015

Flu vaccinations will be available from the 22ND September 2015. Flu vaccinations are NOT free to everyone, but are for the following groups of patients:-

* Anyone aged 65 years and over
* Pregnant women (along with the whooping cough vaccination)
* Those with heart disease
* Those with asthma/COPD
* Those with liver disease or kidney disease
* Diabetics
* Those with neurological disease such as Multiple Sclerosis
* Patients with HIV
* Carers receiving Carer's Allowance
* Children aged two or four years old (done through a nasal squirt rather than injection)

If you qualify for a free flu vaccination and would like to have it, please book an appointment with the Practice Nurse.   Please could you also advise us if you do not wish to have a flu vaccination, as this will stop us from telephoning later to remind yourselves.

If you would like a flu vaccination but are not in any of the groups above, flu vaccinations can be provided at a cost by several local providers such as local pharmacist.

NEW MUMS LEAFLET

                                We are a GP Training practice

As a result of the high standards of clinical care and education we offer, our practice is accredited as a Training practice for the training of new doctors. Training offers significant benefits to the doctors, staff and patients, the presence of additional doctors offers easier access to appointments.

What is a GP Registrar?

GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are in the final year of training to be a GP.

Part of the training process requires some of the consultations with the GP Registrar to be recorded. Please be reassured that your consent will be sought before this is done, and if you do not wish your consultation to be recorded on video, we will respect your wishes. Intimate physical examinations will never be recorded.
