Flu Vaccine for 50-64 year olds


We have just seen in the media this morning that flu vaccinations have been extended to all 50-64 year olds by the Department of Health. We found out by seeing it on the news the same time as you. We have not yet received any details about how to order the additional vaccine but have been advised that this won't be until after 1st Dec. As soon as we have more information we will contact all eligible patients. Please do not phone us in the meantime as we cannot give you any further information. If you are over 65 years, or under 65 in an at risk group – you will have already received an invitation from us for a flu vaccination, if you have not had it yet we do still have appointments for you. Thank you for your support.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence, also called domestic abuse, includes physical, emotional and sexual abuse in couple relationships or between family members.

It affects people from all walks of life, both male and female and presents itself in many ways. The victims often live in constant fear and intimidation from the perpetrator. This can create a very lonely, frightening and isolating existance fro them. For many people, abuse starts slowly. They often don't recognise it or play down what's happening and only ask for help when the abuse is at its worse.

It's abuse if your partner or a family member:

  • threatens you
  • shoves or pushes you
  • makes you fear for your physical safety
  • puts you down, or attempts to undermine your self-esteem
  • controls you, for example by stopping you seeing your friends and family
  • is jealous and possessive, such as being suspicious of your friendships and conversations
  • frightens you

 

You dont have to wait for an emergency situation to seek help.
