Dr Protheroe

Dr Protheroe will be leaving the practice at the end of August.  It is with much sadness that we wish her goodbye.  She has been a fantastic part of the team for the last 13 years and we wish her all the very best in her future career.

If Dr Protheroe is your named GP the other doctors at the practice will take responsibility for your care in her absence.

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

flu vaccinationsFlu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.

 

Flu vaccines are available from 22.09.16 please contact reception asap to make your appointment or come to our drop in sessions on Sat 1st October and Sat 8th October between 10 am and 11.30 am.
