*** FLU CLINICS 2020 *** We have now written to all patients that are eligible for the flu vaccination (those patients aged over 65 as at the 31/3/2021 and all those patients under 65 who have a medical condition who puts them at greater risk. If you are over 65 or under 65 in an at risk category and have not received your letter please contact us urgently. We are currently contacting parents/guardians of children that are eligible. Click here for further details for those patients aged 50-64 who weren't previously eligible for the flu vaccine. It is likely that vaccination for this new cohort will not commence until November. GP practices are being asked to focus on their work to get the most vulnerable groups in our community vaccinated first. We will update this message as soon as we have more information from the Government.

Carers

We know that carers are often “hidden” looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day-to-day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.

Caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community, which is often a 24-hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the carer.  Carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits and respite care and not least, a listening ear when things get too much.h

As a Carer, you are also entitled to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services.  A Carer’s Assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a carer and the possible ways help could be given. It also looks at the needs of the person you care for. There is no charge for an assessment.

Also please ensure that you let us know that you are a carer.

A carers assessment can be arranged by contacting - Customer First: 0808 800 4005
