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.

Flu Vaccination - Booked Appointments

 VACCINATION AGAINST INFLUENZA

 

These instructions are 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 or via a letter sent to your home address.

 

This year we are offering booked appointments only.

 

Please make an appointment now in person, by telephone or online for the following dates in October:

 

Mon 8th 2:30-4.30    Tue 9th 2–4:30    Wed 10th 9:30-11:30 / 2:00-4:00    Thu 11th 2:00-4:00

Sat 13th 10:00-12:00

 

Mon 15th 2:30-4:30    Tue 16th 2–4:00/4:30-6:30    Wed 17th 2:00-4:00    Thu 18th 2:00-4:00

Sat 20th 10:00-12:00

 

As you are aware, flu vaccination is recommended for all those over the age of 65 along with patients of all ages 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.

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
