There are always new developments happening in health care many of which may be very important to those patients who may be having to make critical decisions about their own or their family's health problems. This page is here to help inform you of any interesting or important news or developments happening both outside and in the practice. There may be links to interesting places, newsletters, changes in staff or useful information for patients to see. This is very much under development at this time so please come back to see what is going on.
There have been many worried patients expressing concerns over the MMR (Mumps Measles and Rubella) vaccination. For information about the MMR vaccine and the diseases that it is designed to prevent, visit the comprehensive MMR website at www.mmrthefacts.nhs.uk
Influenza vaccinations are available every year at the practice usually starting in October. All patients over the age of 65 years are now advised to have a flu jab each year. Other patients who fall into defined at risk groups can also have this vaccination. These are patients with immune deficiencies, diabetes, asthma, registered carers etc. If you would like more information or simply reassurance that the vaccination really cannot 'give you the flu' please look here. In addition to this, patients over 65 years of age are encouraged to have a single pneumonia vaccination.
