This is a generic communication that has been issued for the general population
Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups 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.
Within our group of practices, Limes Medical Centre, Village Surgery and Blackwell Medical Centre, extended hours appointments with a GP are now available between 7.30am and 8.00am on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday mornings and between 6.30pm and 8.00pm on Tuesday evenings.
From 1st March 2020 extended hours appointments will be changing. They will be available between 6.30pm and 7.00pm on Monday evenings, between 6.30pm and 8.00pm on Tuesday evenings and between 7.00am and 8.00am on Thursday mornings.

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Our mission statement reflects the policy of the Practice:- 'We go further'.
Police forces have become aware of a fraud circulating targeting elderly and vulnerable members of the community.
Some people have received telephone calls from a caller who purports to be from a GP surgery and asks for an appointment to discuss the persons health or mobility needs. During the appointment, the older person is persuaded to buy mobility aids which are either unnecessary or inappropriate and always expensive.
If you receive a call like this, please check with your GP surgery first before agreeing to a visit.

Student protection for meningococcal disease
Public Health England is calling for students to get the MenACWY vaccine as cases of meningococcal disease - that can lead to meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning) - are anticipated to spike in the winter months. They are urging students to take up the vaccine during their university break before they return to university and halls of residence, where they are often in close contact with many other students.
