Flu update October 2018- Patients over 75 years of age.
For patients aged 75 years and older please note that we have already accounted for our quota of provided immunisations for October and cannot book in any more over 75s at this time. We will be taking another delivery at the end of October and therefore will endeavour to get everybody immunised at the earliest available opportunity.
If you are already booked for a flu jag in October please keep your appointment.
Unfortunately we do not have control on how many immunisations we can order numbers of vaccines are allocated centrally. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Early morning appointments
The Practice is now providing a limited number of Doctor and Nurse appointments from 7.30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These are aimed at improving access for patients who are working and require a non-urgent appointment.
New ‘my diabetes my way’ App
For any patient with a diagnosis of diabetes and who hasn’t already registered with the NHS interactive diabetes website we would strongly encourage you to do so. This excellent website helps you understand and take control in managing your condition. Click here for Website link
There is also a new App that can be downloaded to your smartphone. Click here for App link
Appointments can now be booked on-line for patients who are registered for this service. Please enquire at reception about registering.
