Seasonal Influenza Update:
Flu jabs will be by appointment only this year.We are prioritising high risk groups, shielding patients and care homes.
We will contact you and invite you to book an appointment if you are eligible.
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.
In line with government guidance, our appointment system has changed. Anyone who needs advice or treatment from a GP will be offered an online eConsult or telephone consultation in the first instance. The GP will be able to assess, diagnose, manage, advise, prescribe and refer as normal. Following assessment if the GP feels a face to face review is needed then this will be arranged too.
TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY UNLESS A GP HAS GIVEN YOU AN APPOINTMENT.
If you have an appointment pre-booked with the surgery within the next 4 weeks, we will contact you 24 hours before your appointment to confirm if you are well to attend
You will now be asked to wear a face covering if you are coming to our GP practice for an appointment. This will help protect you, other patients in the waiting area, and staff.
Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly. For example, primary age children unassisted, or those with respiratory conditions.
Face coverings can help stop the spread of coronavirus by preventing you from inadvertently passing on the disease to others if you have it but are not showing symptoms. By wearing a face covering, you’ll be helping us to make sure our GP practices remain safe places for people to receive care.
It’s important to remember that, it’s still so important to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds on a regular basis.
If you are unable to provide your own face covering, we can provide you with one of our face masks. However, please be considerate as these masks are the supply which is used by our staff.
Information about wearing face coverings and how to make your own is available on the gov.uk website: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/how-to-wear-and-make-a-cloth-face-covering
