Important Information regarding Influenza Vaccine for patients aged 50-64

We are aware that patients aged 50-64 may receive a letter from NHS England advising that Flu Vaccine is available.  This is not correct and we would urge our patients NOT to contact the Surgery to book an appointment if you are aged 50-64 currently.  We do not yet have the vaccine.   Many apologies for this situation.

PATIENTS AGED 50-64 NOT IN AN AT RISK GROUP WILL BE INFORMED AT A LATER DATE OF HOW THEY CAN ACCESS THE FLU VACCINATION

IMPORTANT ADVICE FOR OUR PATIENTS AND CARERS

The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE SURGERY IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THE SYMPTOMS ABOVE, STAY AT HOME AND ARRANGE TO HAVE A TEST ON WWW.GOV.UK.

For most people, COVID-19 will be a mild illness. However, if you have any of the symptoms above, stay at home and isolate for 10 days.  You should arrange to have a test - visit www.gov.uk.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SURGERY TO REQUEST A TEST WE DO NOT HAVE TESTS AVAILABLE

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
