Macmillan provide practical, medical and financial support and push for better cancer care.

The website feature real-life accounts of issues such as effect on work and education, social life and relationships, consulting health professionals and treatment.

Flu Immunisation

This year’s flu vaccination campaign is being managed differently from previous years due to the restrictions placed upon us by Covid-19 and the need to ensure patient and staff safety. The importance of immunisation against flu this year has been stressed in the media and we urge all patients who are invited for vaccination to attend. We have good supplies of vaccines.

There are no walk-in clinics this season. All clinics are by appointment only - on most weekday afternoons and on some Saturday mornings.

All patients who are at risk – those aged 65 and over on 31st March next year and those with long term conditions –  are being invited in small groups each week. As soon as you receive your invitation please ring to book your appointment.

Patients who are known to be housebound will be vaccinated by the District Nursing team.

Vaccination against Shingles and Pneumoccocal will be given in line with national guidance.

We will be providing immunisation for healthy children aged 2 and 3 on Mondays. This programme is again by invitation.

Patients aged 50 to 64 who are not in an at risk group will be invited for vaccination from November in line with national guidance and vaccine supply.

Many thanks in advance for your support of what is going to be a very different flu campaign this year. We are grateful for your understanding and assure you of our commitment to your health and safety.
