FLU Vaccinations 2020/21

Our vaccinations will be arriving after the 18th September and clinics will start the following week. We are not booking appointments until they arrive. Due to keeping everyone safe by social distancing the clinics will be very different this year and it will take us longer to get those aged 65 and above as well as patients in an at risk group vaccinated. Please come at the time specified and dress appropriately so that the clinicians have easy access to your arm.

Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier. 

Our Patient Participation Group [PPG]

The overall aim of our group [PPG] is to develop a positive and constructive relationship between patients, the Practice and the community it serves, ensuring the practice remains accountable and responsive to all its patients needs.

 Our group key roles are:-

1.  Create and improve two-way communication between patients, the Practice and the community it serves.

2.  To bring a sense of partnership between Practice and patients.

3.  Provide an avenue for patients’ input in the way facilities and services are planned and executed, to add humanity to, and influence those services.

4.  Support the Practice in good health promotions, preventative medicine and health literacy

5.  Collect patient opinions and experiences to help the practice to evaluate its services.

Our Patient Participation Group Membership

All registered patients are welcome to join the PPG although, in the interests of effective decision making, membership of the core group is limited. Specialist sub-groups may be formed to deal with specific topics utilising individual skills and interests.
