For those who can get a free NHS Flu-Jab
Under guidance from NHS England and Public health, we have been advised to use a new Quadrivalent flu vaccine this year for patients that are under 65 but have a medical condition that gives a much broader protection to you. Our duty of care to you means we have to buy this vaccine in for you and unfortunately we don’t receive the full price back if the vaccine is not used, so we ask that you please come to the surgery to have it on one of our drop-in days, or if it difficult for you to get to one of these clinics please call us and we will try to fit you in somewhere – YOUR VACCINE IS HERE WAITING FOR YOU.
As always we are the best place for you to receive your flu vaccine as other healthcare professionals do not have full access to your clinical record and we will keep your health record up to date.
If you are not eligible for a free jab, then we would recommend seeing our local Pharmacy for a Private Flu Jab for a small private fee, (as we are prohibited from offering this to you)
Earlier this year funding which supported GP practices to provide consultations to those who had suffered a minor injury was withdrawn.
Increased funding has instead gone to A&E Departments, who last year saw a 41% uplift on their clinical payments.
An A&E department will receive as much money for ONE patient visiting their department as your GP receives for a whole year of looking after the same patient.
Therefore, please don’t be upset with us when we ask you to attend A&E, not the practice for any minor injury treatment, as we are no longer commissioned to provide this service.
