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.

Mental Wellbeing

 

The surgery can offer patients experiencing depression, low mood or anxiety the opportunity to have an extended appointment with a mental health nurse specialist.

 

Our specialist nurse works Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

 

To be referred in to this service you must speak to your usual GP first.

 

If you would prefer to read about how to self manage there are lots of resources available to support you.
