***IMPORTANT FLU INFORMATION***


Please note we are currently running our flu clinics.  If you are entitled to the Flu Vaccine and have received a letter please contact the surgery to make an appointment.  We are also running a Fluenz Clinic for 2-3 year olds.


Children are more likely to suffer from flu than adults. Giving flu vaccine to children helps stop them catching and spreading the infection, so it protects them and also the people around them, including those at increased risk such as elderly relatives or people with chronic health conditions.  If you have a child in this age range please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment.  Primary school children will receive theirs at school.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
