We would like to welcome Dr Rukshana Steven to the practice. She joined the team on 1st December 2016 as a GP Partner.
Flu vaccinations are still available to all patients over the age of 65, patients under 65 with a chronic condition such as heart problems, respiratory problems, kidney disease. All 2-5 year olds are also entitled to the flu vaccination free of charge. If your child missed the vaccination at school then the practice is able to offer a 'catch-up' programme. Please contact your surgery to make an appointment with the practice nurse for this.
This is the time of year when coughs, colds and sore throats are very common. If you have a minor illness such as this please see the section on the right-hand side of the website for some advice on how to treat this at home. Usually a mild viral illness will improve without treatment in about a week. If your symptoms do not improve within a few days or worsen then your local pharmacist can help or you can phone the GP for some advice.
