FLU VACCINATION

We are advising all eligible patients to have the flu jab.  It is important to protect yourselves from the flu this year especially as we still have Covid-19 in the community.

Our flu will be conducted from September 2020 to March 22021.

Please note that people in the 50-64 year old age group will NOT be vaccinated until November and December.  No appointments will be offered for this age group until then, and at that point will be subject to vaccine supply.  This is nationally directed - not the decision of the practice and is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. 

If you are 50-64 and you are in on of the other groups eligible for the flu vaccination for example you have health condition which puts you at risk from the flu - you will be invited earlier.

Please also note Its is not responsibility of practices to organise corona virus tests.  If you have coronavirus symptoms or have been asked to get a test you can visit the gov.ukwebsite to organise this or call 119 if you cannot use the online service.

 

Please call the surgery to book an appointment.

Injured or unwell? Don’t just go to A&E

Symptoms? Local Services? HEALTH HELP NOW

Your local Accident and Emergency (A&E) department is under severe pressure because of the numbers of patients attending the department, often with common health problems that can be better treated elsewhere. To help raise awareness, the “A&E won’t kiss it better”’ campaign is being rolled out across Sutton this winter.

The campaign will remind local people that A&E is not for common health problems, often associated with the colder weather, like coughs and colds but for serious and life-threatening emergencies like loss of consciousness

Dr Jonathan Cockbain, local GP and Urgent Care Clinical Lead for NHS Sutton CCG is reminding local people that A&E is for serious emergencies only. “Hospitals are very busy places all year round, but particularly in the winter months. Every day doctors and nurses who specialise in life-threatening illness spend their time dealing with people who have coughs, back ache, diarrhoea and other minor illnesses.
