FLU VACCINATION CLINICS
This year the practice is offering two different vaccinations, based on the latest guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.
We will be offering the Fluad vaccination to all patients aged 65 (on or before 31/3/2019) as this has shown to be the most effective for this age group.
For all patients not in this age group, who are eligible for an NHS vaccine, we will be offering Quadrivalent vaccination which offers protection from four different strains of flu. This is based on the World Health Organisation's recommendation for the 2018/19 season.
We are now taking bookings for flu vaccinations - please contact Reception on 01948 662033 to book your appointment.
EMERGENCY & URGENT TREATMENT
The practice offers a Telephone Access appointment for all patients who require an urgent (same day) appointment.
We are also fortunate in Whitchurch to have a Minor Injuries Unit based at Whitchurch Community Hospital. The minor injuries nurses can see you for sprains, lacerations, head injury advice, bites etc. The unit is currently open from 9 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday.
We are pleased to announce that you can order your repeat medication,book appointments, look at a summary of your medical records, update your personal details ie address, telephone number online.
