We have updated our Health advice and Self-Care page with lots of links to local services which you can access directly, without having to involve your GP.

We are now booking Flu jabs for patients 65 and over – the uptake so far has been amazing which is fantastic, and bookings are running into October.
If you are over 65 and would like to book a Flu jab, please phone the surgery on 01243 608201.
Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group 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.
