This year our flu up take has been really, really good, but we still have people who are eligible who haven't had the flu vaccine.  Thank you to everyone for your support at this challenging time. From Team at Hartwood Healthcare. 

We would like to thank all patients for adhering to social distancing and following our one way system. It’s all very different this year.

If you haven't had your flu vaccine there is still time, please call reception on 0117 3015 226. 

Positve Feedback

 

Please click on the attachment which may answer some questions you have regarding the flu vaccine: Facts and Myths about the flu vaccine.

No needles involved-the vaccine is sprayed into the nostrils.

Protecting children helps to protect the whole family from this horrible virus and this is more important than ever this year with the risk of Covid-19.

The vaccination is free

 

Who can get the vaccine?

Children aged 2 or 3 years on 31st August 2020

Children aged 4 to 18 who have a condition that puts them more at risk from flu:

  • Taking a steroid inhaler or tablets for asthma 
  • heart disease
  • kidney disease
  • chronic liver disease, such as hepatitis
  • cerebral palsy
  • a learning disability
  • diabetes
  • problems with your spleen – for example, sickle cell disease or if you have had your spleen removed
  • a weakened immune system as the result of conditions such as HIV and AIDS, or medicines such as steroid tablets or chemotherapy

We want to reduce your exposure to the risk of COVID-19. PLEASE arrive for your appointment on time – NOT EARLY. A longer wait outside increases your risk of exposure to the virus.


Our doors maybe closed BUT WE ARE STILL OPEN! If you think you need to speak or see a doctor or nurse please phone the surgery as normal. If you need to be seen you will be given an appointment time and instructions.  Please follow.
