SHINGLES IMMUNISATION from the 1st Sept 2015. You can have a vaccination if:
You are aged 70, 71 or 72 on the 1st September 2015, but not previously vaccinated.
You are aged 78 or 79 on the 1st September 2015, but not previously vaccinated, you will remain eligible until your 80th birthday
We will send all patients that become eligible this year a letter inviting them to attend our September Shingles Vaccination Clinics.
An Advanced Nurse Practitioner runs a weekly clinic on a Monday morning at the Practice, and from September will also run a clinic on a Friday morning.
Every patient is allocated a 'NAMED GP'. If you have 'repeat medication' your repeat prescription slip will show your 'named accountable GP'. We ensure that any letters that you receive from the practice indicate your 'named GP'. All new patients and those over 75 will have been contacted to inform them of their 'named GP'. Any patients that do not know their 'named GP' are welcome to ask at reception when visiting or telephoning the practice

THE WAY YOU ORDER MEDICATION ON OUR WEBSITE HAS CHANGED
The ‘old’ and ‘new’ medication ordering systems were running in parallel on our website between January 2015 and the 31st July 2015 to help allow patients time to migrate to the ‘new’ medication ordering system. We apologise for any inconvenience caused but due to NHS regulations we have now had to cease the ‘old’ medication ordering system. Further information on registering for the NEW system is available via clicking on the link below:
