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.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
