Ladies Walk Practice
We hope to use our surgery website as a way of presenting all our patients with an up to date resource for all information relating to our practice.
We will keep it current with any news, developments and details that are relevant to the practice and our patients.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you use the website as a useful resource with links to other reliable websites for health related information. If there is topical health information we will also add this to the website.
We will not be holding Saturday flu clinics this year. However we will be running sit and wait clinics at both surgeries during the mornings and afternoons from the 19th September for those eligible for the flu vaccination. There will also be pre-bookable appointments held on Monday evenings for those who find it difficult to attend the surgery during our normal working hours. Please ask at reception for further information and to check if you are eligible for a flu vaccination. Children will be invited to attend a pre-booked appointment by letter.
Eligible patients include all patients over 65 years of age (those born before 1st April 1952), younger patients with long term conditions (bronchitis, MS, HIV/AIDS, chronic heart, liver kidney or obstructive lung disease, diabetes), pregnant women, patients with learning disabilities, patients with asthma currently taking steroid treatment, patients that are immune suppressed, patients that have had a stroke and patients that are registered with the practice as a carer.
Further information about the flu jab can be found at www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/pages/flu-influenza-vaccine.aspx
Patients eligible for a free flu vaccination are asked to support Ladies Walk Practice by having their flu vaccination at the surgery.
