Norovirus

#Norovirus is one of the most common stomach bugs in the UK. While very unpleasant, it usually clears up by itself in a few days. If you’re suffering, make sure you avoid going to your GP as it can spread to others very easily. #HelpUsHelpYou #HealthierFutures

Why have you flu vaccination at your GP surgery?

Why have you flu vaccination at your GP surgery?

We offer a setting where we can check your medical records and make sure you get the most suitable vaccine

–    We can check your medical records to see what else you may be eligible for at the same time, eg shingles or pneumococcal vaccinations and get everything done in one visit

–        We can offer protection for those who may be forgetful by reducing the risk of duplication in vaccines being administered

–       

We have already ordered a flu vaccination for all of our eligible patients.  Our first lot of vaccines for anyone 65 years and over are here already!

Please note that we have to order vaccine well in advance of flu season and assure NHS England that we have enough vaccines for every eligible patient

We have to buy these vaccines for you and we can only return a limited number that go unused, the rest have to be paid for by the surgery.

Dementia Awareness Campaign

Worried someone close to you is losing their memory?

Many people suffer from memory loss as they get older. But if it starts to happen on a regular basis, it could be the early signs of dementia.

What should I look for?

Dementia is not a single illness but a group of symptoms caused by damage to the brain. The symptoms include:

  • memory loss, such as remembering past events much more easily than recent ones
  • problems thinking or reasoning, or finding it hard to follow conversations or TV programmes
  • feeling anxious, depressed or angry about memory loss, or feeling confused, even when in a familiar environment

What should I do?

If you’re worried about someone who is showing the signs above, encourage them to visit their GP to get a proper diagnosis. Use the link at the top of the page to find your GP.

The Alzheimer’s Society provides tips on how to raise the topic of dementia with a loved one.
