Noticeboard

Whilst we’ve received information that all 50-64 year olds may be eligible for a free flu vaccination as part of plans to protect more people against seasonal flu, these free vaccinations will be subject to vaccine delivery later in the year.

This allows us (GP’s and community pharmacists) to focus on those who are in an at risk group, such as pregnant women and people with long term health conditions. They will be given priority and offered the vaccine first; if you are in this category you will be contacted.

If you are aged 50-64 and not in one of the at risk categories you will be made aware in the coming months if you will be able to attend for vaccination. If the programme is extended this is likely to be November or December.

Community Clinics for lower leg wounds at the Withywood Centre

A weekly community clinic has been set up at the Withywood Centre for people with lower leg wounds.  During the clinics, patients can receive compression therapy or other lower leg treatments, with support from our friendly nurses and volunteers, whilst enjoying a cup of tea and socialising with other people experiencing the same condition. To support the initiative, Bristol Ageing Better has commissioned Age UK Bristol to provide volunteer support and to arrange patient transport.

Patients can attend the clinic instead of their usual weekly appointment at the GP surgery. The clinic is being piloted for 12 months, beginningvApril 2017. It is organised by South Bristol Primary Care Collaborative and supported by Bristol Ageing Better.

 The clinics take place every Thursday morning from 09.30am in the Withywood Centre, with more to follow in Knowle at a later date. If you are interested in attending, please contact your GP practice nursing team to find out more.
