The annual campaign for vaccinations against flu usually take place from October - March (as long as stock lasts) for those age 65 and over as well as those living with certain long term conditions or in the ‘At Risk’ group of patients. Please contact the surgery to book an appointment. If you are unsure about qualifying, please ask at reception and they will be able to advise you.
‘At Risk' patients include:
- chronic (long-term) lung disease
- asthma (but only patients who have been prescribed asthma medication during the last 6 months)
- chronic neurological disease (neurological disorders include motor neurone disease, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis)
- suppressed immune systems (whether caused by disease or treatment)
If you are over 65 and haven't had your pneumococcal vaccination, you will be offered this as well.
These reviews are now done by telephone. You will be sent an Asthma Questionnaire via text initially and the extent of further review will depend on how well your asthma is controlled at present and how much support you may require
Family Planning / HRT / Cervical Screening
A full range of family planning services including hormone replacement therapy and preconception advice is offered by our practice to our registered patients. Please note that we do not offer contraception services to temporary patients who should contact their own GP for repeat prescriptions of the pill.
We advise all women between the ages of 25 and 49 to have a cervical smear every 3 years, and those between 50 and 64 to have one every 5 years. Please book an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
Patients are sent a reminder letter to make an appointment when their review is due.
We like to see all our Diabetic patients annually. Long Term Condition appointments are now available every weekday at the surgery and also at St Mark's Hospital.
Patients who are confined to their homes and need nursing services may need to be referred by the doctor to the District Nurse service. District nurses are employed by the Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Patients may also be referred to the District nurses by the hospitals when discharged from hospital if they need further at home.
