Flu Season is Here!
The Flu Season is here and it is important that you get your flu jab early.
Influenza is an acute viral infection which spreads easily from person to person. Those most at risk are the over 65s, those with chronic respiratory disease such as asthma and chronic bronchitis, people with diabetes mellitus, those with an underactive immune system and pregnant women.
Vaccination is the most effective way to prevent infection. If you are eligible for a flu vaccine, please call Reception and book an appointment NOW!

Think before you attend A&E
Before you attend A&E please think carefully about whether that is actually the right choice or whether you could get help elsewhere. There are still people heading to A&E even though they should really be seeking help from GPs, pharmacists or getting better at home.
The hospital teams find themselves having to care for people with illnesses such as colds and flu; or the winter sickness and diarrhoea bug – that means they have to balance the overriding need to deal with genuine medical emergencies; with the needs of the less seriously ill.
Many people arriving at A&E would get faster; more convenient help if they spoke to a qualified pharmacist; contacted the practice; called 111; visited one of the NHS walk-in centres or an urgent care centre.
