Unpaid Carers and young carers
Those who, without payment, provide help and support to a partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour who could not manage without this help. This could be due to age, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.
Young carers are those under 18 who carry out significant caring tasks and assume a level of responsibility for another person which would normally be taken by an adult.
Please note that patients who do not fall into these categories or who have no other clinical reason for receiving the flu vaccination will not be given the vaccination.
Clinicians will visit the residential and nursing homes as usual to administer the vaccination.
We will also be offering the shingles vaccination to all those eligible.  Eligibility can be checked at the following website:

 The shingles vaccination can be given at the same time as the flu vaccination.  Please advise our Reception team if you also wish the shingles vaccine so that they can make an appropriate appointment for you.

Travel Clinic

Our practices nurses are happy to provide any travel advice you might need particularly if you are planning a trip abroad.  Lynne Innes and Caron Fletcher are specially trained to give travel advice and this included discussion about immunisations, malaria prevention, safe eating and drinking, staying safe in the sun and other sensible health precautions.  We do ask patients to make an appointment several weeks in advance of a trip.  To request an appointment, please ask for a Travel Form from Reception or complete it on-line in the Travel Information section our website. 

Two appointments will be required, one to discuss your travel arrangements and decide on the appropriate immunisations, and a further appointment to administer the vaccinations. There is no charge for the Travel Clinic, but some immunisations, including Yellow Fever, and all malaria prevention medication cannot be prescribed under the NHS. There is therefore a charge for the private prescriptions and for the medication at the pharmacy.

Hopefully for those staying at home, we will have a sunny and warm summer and if we do it is still important to think about staying safe in the sun. Children and those with fair skin can be more vulnerable to sun burn and should take precautions. Lots of useful information and advice is available on the Cancer Research UK website  So whether you are having a holiday at home or abroad, we hope that you have a very enjoyable, relaxing and safe holiday.

Compliments and Complaints

We are always keen to hear from patients about the services that we provide.  It is gratifying to hear when things go well, but we accept that sometimes we could improve.  We therefore encourage comments or suggestions which will enable us to identify problems and correct them.  Complaints, concerns or comments can be discussed with any clinician or member of staff at the Health Centre or they can be sent in writing to the practice manager.  Further information is available in the Policies section of the website.
