CHILDREN'S FLU VACCINES WILL BE DELIVERED IN OCTOBER. DATES WILL BE ADVISED.

WE ONLY VACCINATE CHILDREN BORN BETWEEN 01/09/2015 - 31/08/2017 AND CHILDREN WITH CERTAIN CONDITIONS PUTTING THEM AT AN INCREASED RISK FROM FLU COMPLICATIONS.

 

NHS guidelines state that the following registered patients are eligible and it is recommended that they have a flu jab:

  • Patients with the following conditions: Respiratory Disease (such as COPD or for certain Asthmatics), Heart Disease, Kidney Disease, Liver Disease, Neurological Disease (such as past history of a stroke), Diabetes, Immunosuppression
  • All people aged 65 or over
  • All pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy
  • Health & Social Care Workers
  • Carers
  • Children who are 2, 3 or 4 years old (nasal flu vaccine)                      

WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE ALL ELIGIBLE PATIENTS TO HAVE A FLU JAB WITH US!

We had to order stocks at the beginning of this year and vaccines will be wasted if not used.

Without a seasonal flu jab eligible patients will be at risk of developing serious complications from catching flu, such as pneumonia. Most people experience no complications after a flu jab, but you can sometimes get a sore arm, mild fever or chills. These symptoms usually settle within a few days and since the injection does not contain any live virus, contrary to popular belief, it cannot give you flu.

Smear Tests in Online Booking

We have now enabled online booking for smear tests.

If you are registered for Online Access, please go to https://systmonline.tpp-uk.com/ and type in your credentials.

Select a Session with one of the Nurses and book a SMEAR TEST appointment.
