Practice Flu Vaccination Campaign for 2021
It’s that time of year again when we are pleased to invite our eligible patients to book into our flu clinics for their free flu vaccination. Our clinics are being held at our Burton Joyce and Lowdham surgeries for your convenience, and we are also now pleased to be able to offer our patients an appointment starting on Saturday 2nd October in Lowdham and Saturday 9th October in Burton Joyce, with more clinics during the week too. We will add all of the clinic dates onto the website. With Coronavirus it is very important to be protected from influenza again this year so if you are eligible for the Flu vaccination please call in the afternoons to make your appointment.
We would like to advise you that we are having a new telephone system installed which may cause some disruption whilst the system changes over. Please bear with us whilst this is taking place as we do not know exactly how long it will take. Our existing number should still be in service and our new number 01159312500 will be up and running shortly. For urgent assistance call 111 or 999 for emergency services. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

The Institute of General Practice Management has launched a campaign to raise awareness of some of the abuse our teams face every day. While most patients are polite and courteous, our teams are having to deal with abuse daily and the abuse must stop. Featured on 5Live and BBC Breakfast, hopefully this will make some people think twice. Please take time to watch this 4 minute video

Most chest pain is not a sign of anything serious but you should get medical advice just in case. Get immediate medical help if you think you're having a heart attack. You have sudden chest pain that: spreads to your arms, back, neck or jaw, makes your chest feel tight or heavy, also started with shortness of breath, sweating and feeling or being sick, lasts more than 15 minutes. You could be having a heart attack. Call 999 immediately as you need immediate treatment in hospital.
The F.A.S.T. (Face, Arms, Speech, Time) acronym is effective in driving calls to 999 for stroke, saving lives and reducing disability. It also provides a simple test to help people identify the most common signs of a stroke: Face – has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile? Arms – can they raise both arms and keep them there? Speech – is their speech slurred? Time to call 999 if you see any one of these signs of a stroke. When Stroke Strikes Act F.A.S.T. Call 999
