New GP

We would like to welcome Dr Rukshana Steven to the practice.  She joined the team on 1st December 2016 as a GP Partner.

Flu Vaccinations

Flu vaccinations are still available to all patients over the age of 65, patients under 65 with a chronic condition such as heart problems, respiratory problems, kidney disease.  All 2-5 year olds are also entitled to the flu vaccination free of charge.  If your child missed the vaccination at school then the practice is able to offer a 'catch-up' programme.  Please contact your surgery to make an appointment with the practice nurse for this.

Minor Illness

This is the time of year when coughs, colds and sore throats are very common.  If you have a minor illness such as this please see the section on the right-hand side of the website for some advice on how to treat this at home.  Usually a mild viral illness will improve without treatment in about a week.  If your symptoms do not improve within a few days or worsen then your local pharmacist can help or you can phone the GP for some advice.

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to patients who are aged 65 or over or who are in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.

The flu vaccination is also now offered to all children aged 2-11.  2-5 year olds will be offered the vaccine at the practice and children aged 5-11 will be vaccinated at school.
