News & Events

FLU VACCINATIONS 2020

Flu Vaccinations

we’re now booking flu appointments are available every day from 5th October and the Saturday flu clinic is on 10th October 9.30-12 and are bookable now online or by phone.

This year the flu vaccine is being offered on the NHS to:

adults 65 and over

people with certain medical conditions (including children in at-risk groups from 6 months of age)

pregnant women

people living with someone who's at high risk from coronavirus (on the NHS shielded patient list)

children aged 2 and 3 on 31 August 2020

children in primary school

children in year 7 (secondary school)

frontline health or social care workers

Some of these groups are more at risk of developing potentially serious complications of flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection).

Others are more at risk of passing flu on to vulnerable people should they catch the virus.

Later in the year, we expect to be able to offer the flu vaccine to healthy people aged 50 to 64. However, people of this 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 to your practice earlier and you should not delay having your flu vaccine.

 

 

 

 

 

Patient Survey - GP Services during COVID-19

We would like to hear your views about GP services during COVID-19

Local GP Practices and NHS North East Lincolnshire CCG are working together to gather the views of patients regarding the changes that have been made to Primary Care services in response to the Covid19 outbreak. At the start of the response to the outbreak, a number of changes were made to how GP services operated in North East Lincolnshire, with patients being assessed over the phone or digitally, and only being asked to attend in person when necessary.

We are asking for the views and experiences of patients now, in order to inform plans for future services. You can complete the survey online by clicking here - https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/PC-C19-GPE this link will work on laptops, PCs, tablets and mobile phones.

Or if you would prefer you can complete the survey over the telephone by calling the CCG on 0300 3000 567.

This survey closes on Monday 24th August 2020.

Cervical Screening - Warning

NHS Cervical Screening Programme

We have received reports today of a possible scam. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.

These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme. Please contact the practice if you are unsure, DO NOT supply your personal information to anyone.
 

CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION

***CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION***

Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

Follow the governments latest measures where possible and self-isolate if necessary.

• Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

What to do if you have symptoms

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

- a high temperature

- a new continuous cough

if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms.

This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.
