Noticeboard

Our FLU CLINIC this year is on Saturday 7th October.  If you're eligible, please make your appointment now.


Friends and Family Test results so far show that 99% of our patients said they are extremely likely to recommend our practice to their friends or family members.


The NHS has requested us to tell every patient who their doctor is.  If you wish to be told, please call us on 01452 740213.  If you come to the surgery, the receptionist will probably confirm this with you.


If you were aged 70 - 73, or 78 - 79 on 1st September 2016, you can have a shingles vaccination.  You need only one of these to protect you, so please make your appointment now.

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

flu vaccinationsFlu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people. From 2013, children aged 2 and 3 will also be invited; their vaccination will be given via nasal spray.
