FLU - NHS England have recommended flu vaccines dependent on age and existing medical conditions and you will receive either the newly licensed Adjuvanted Trivalent or the Quadrivalent.

The Surgery will contact you to ensure you receive ‘your’ vaccine at the appropriate time.  Flu Clinics will be held during September, October and November.

If you are aged 65 and over your recommended flu vaccine is the Adjuvanted trivalent vaccine (newly licensed).

If you are aged between 18 and 64 and eligible for the flu vaccine due to an existing medical condition or you are pregnant your recommended flu vaccine is the Quadrivalent vaccine.

Important message for those patients who use SystmOnline - be aware of an official looking email asking you to click a link to log in because 'we are changing the system and need to update'.  SystmOnline has NOT sent emails and this is a scam.  Please contact the surgery if your online access is affected. Thank you.

We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients, in particular at evenings and weekends.  If you would like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask.  These appointments may be at a  different site; for example, Poole General Hospital, Dorset County Hospital, Weymouth Walk-in Centre, Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospital. 

We are looking for people to join our Patient Representative Committee, the group meets 4 times a year.  Please leave your details with reception if you are interested and the Practice Manager will be in contact.
