Please book in for your flu jabs if you are eligible.
REFURBISHMENTS WORKS !
From Tuesday 31st May work commences to refurbish the nurse treatment rooms at the surgery. Please accept our apologies in advance for possible disruption whilst we undertake this necessary work.
As the weather declines we are seeing an increased number of patients with upper respiratory infections. Almost all of these are VIRAL in nature and not BACTERIAL, and therefore ANTIBIOTICS WILL NOT HELP.
Before making an appointment to see a doctor, please try cold and flu remedies from your pharmacy, drink plenty of fluids and keep warm. It can sometimes take a week to 10 days for symptoms to improve. Your local pharmacist will be happy to advise and, of course do contact the surgery if symptoms worsen or you remain concerned.
If you are a patient on one of our ‘at risk’ registers, or are over the age of 65, and have not already done so, please make an appointment for your flu vaccination.
