 Seasonal Influenza Update


You will no doubt be aware that seasonal flu is now circulating in the area.


Flu vaccination appointments are still available to book for those patients eligible to have a vaccination. To book your appointment, log on to your online account or contact the surgery on 01769 580295.


Most cases of flu can be treated effectively at home. Patients are encouraged to self-care, seek advice on treating symptoms via reputable online resources such as NHS Choices, or to seek advice from a local Pharmacist before contacting the GP.


Patients should be advised to:


- rest and sleep.


- keep warm.


- take paracetamol or ibuprofen to lower your temperature and treat aches and pains.


- drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.



More information can be found on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/flu or via NHS 111.

The fees charged (listed below) are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our patient service team will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
