Influenza – flu – is a highly infectious and potentially serious illness caused by influenza viruses. Each year the make-up of the seasonal flu vaccine is designed to protect against the influenza viruses that the World Health Organization decide are most likely to be circulating in the coming winter.
Regular immunisation (vaccination) is given free of charge to the following at-risk people, to protect them from seasonal flu:

They cannot give a second opinion on a condition which has already been seen by a Doctor
Out of Hours Service
Urgent problems which can’t wait until the Surgery is open (18.30 08.00hrs weekdays and all weekends including bank holidays) call: NHS 111
This telephone help service is available 24 hours a day 365 days a year. NHS Direct can give guidance and advice on most medical conditions.
Most Pharmacies have a qualified Pharmacist available; Pharmacists are qualified to give general medical advice on various minor illnesses. However, if the Pharmacist is unable to help they will give advice on who you should see. This will generally be your GP.
GP Emergency Clinic
Basically for everything else which you think is urgent .
We run Emergency Clinics every weekday from 9am to 12.00pm.
We class as emergency any condition which is causing you concern or distress, usually new conditions or an old one which has got worse suddenly. For example:
You will be seen by the duty doctor or nurse as appropriate. There may be a small wait when we are busy but this is usually much less than you will find in Accident and Emergency.
We cannot deal with suspected fractures, wounds that need stitching or nosebleeds that won’t stop – these are best seen by Accident and Emergency or the Minor Injuries Clinic.
Unless your condition really needs hospital treatment, it is better for you to be seen in the G.P. Surgery – we have your records which tell us about your previous illnesses and any medicines which haven’t suited you in the past. You will usually be seen more quickly in your G.P. Surgery than in A&E. If you go to A&E with a condition which could be seen in your G.P. Surgery this will cause delay for those who really do need hospital treatment.
Please keep the emergency clinic free for those who need it and don’t try to use it for routine appointments.
Our triage nurses offer telephone advice between 8.30am and 12 noon. Between 2pm and 6.30pm our receptionist would be happy to ask our doctors if you are unsure as to where would be the best place to go for your problem. Please phone us on 023 92663368 and we will be happy to advise. Outside these hours advice can be obtained from the NHS 111.
