FLU CLINICS:

Please see the NHS Website for more guidance: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/flu-influenza-vaccine/

We are holding flu clinics at the Surgery in October, for those who are eligible. If you have received a text message, please book using the link, or call the Surgery. If you are over 65, you can have your flu vaccine at any participating Pharmacy. If you are under 65, you will need to show your eligibility text message/letter. Not all Pharmacies are doing under 65's, so we recommend ringing in advance. 

Starting from mid-October, people aged 50 years old or over (including those who will be 50 years old by 31 March 2023) can have a free NHS flu vaccine. This is so at-risk groups can be offered vaccination first. A local Pharmacy will be able to do that for you. Alternatively, you can wait to be invited by the Surgery, to have it done with one of our clinicians.

A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface.
Blood samples from children (under 16) are taken at the hospital which you will need to pre-book. They are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
