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.

Pharmacists

The surgery has a Practice Pharmacist and Prescription Clerk.


The pharmacist and clerk will be dealing with repeat prescription requests and medication queries.



The pharmacist will in the long term run clinics for patients with long-term conditions, such as asthma and COPD.  


The pharmacist role is to support GPs in ensuring patients are taking the most appropriate medication and to ensure patients attend for regular reviews of their long term conditions.


 


Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
