NOTICE

TO ALL OUR PATIENTS

 

Can we please ask for your help and support for the practice over the next few months?

 

As you know, Dr Hee has retired and Dr Swift is starting her maternity leave. We are aware that it will be more difficult to book an appointment during this period and we are working as hard as we can to reduce any impact on our patients. We have been successful in recruiting three new GPs who will be starting over the next few months.

 

Although this is a period of change, we are very optimistic and excited about the future of the practice.

 

Thank-you for bearing with us during this period of transition.

 

Dr Kath Markus, Dr Josie Wenham and Dr Kathryn Lucas (The Partners)

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 people 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.
