Changed Address?

Please update the practice if you have changed address or telephone number - it is vital that we have correct contact details.  Please select the Online Services from our Quick Links menu on the right. You must live within our practice area to remain registered with us - look at the practice area map in the New Patients tab to check where you live.

Car Park

The University has introduced Pay & Display around our car park at the back of the surgery. Patients attending the surgery for 90 minutes or less can park without charge in the car park area closest to the surgery.

Named Doctor

All patients have a named doctor and you will be informed who that is when you register for the first time. However we have an "open list policy" which means you are welcome to see whichever doctor you choose but we would strongly advise trying to see a consistent doctor, especially for long term health conditions. Please see here for more information.

This year we are offering booked appointments only for Patients who have been notified by the Practice that they qualify for a free Influenza vaccination. This notification will either be in the form of a text, an email or via a letter sent to your home address.

When you have been notified by the Practice that you qualify for a flu vaccination please select one of the above Flu Clinic dates and make an appointment with the reception.

Eligibility

The Practice will be providing a seasonal influenza vaccination to all eligible patients registered at the GP practice:

The eligible patients are those who are registered at the practice, who are:

    • aged six months to 64 years (inclusive) and suffering from heart disease, diabetes, lung diseases such as bronchitis and asthma, liver disease and some patients with cancer. We are also offering vaccination to those who care for vulnerable patients..

    • pregnant women.

    • aged 65 and over.

    • locum GPs (to be vaccinated by the GP practice where they are registered as a patient);

    • health and social care staff employed by a registered residential care/nursing home or registered domiciliary care provider (to be vaccinated if they are registered with UMP as a patient) and;

    • health and care staff employed by a voluntary managed hospice provider (to be vaccinated if they are registered with UMP as a patient).



The vaccine provides a high degree of protection against influenza. Children aged 2 to 9 will receive 2 doses of a nasal vaccine four weeks apart [if they have not had flu vaccination before] as it is more effective than an injection. The nasal vaccine is not effective for children under 2 years. Please note that as we use an automated call system, 2 and 3 year old  children may get  two invitations as all children in this age group, not those just a risk are being offered vaccination this year. Pregnant women may also receive 2 invitations for the same reason.

If you have an egg allergy, please tell the Nurse before your vaccination, as this is one of the few contraindications to having the vaccination.

If you do not wish to have the flu vaccination to be given to you or your child or have already had it elsewhere, please e-mail us on admin.umpsbpct@nhs.net starting your message with “Seasonal Flu decline” and your NHS number
