IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Flu vaccination for those aged 50 to 64 with no underlying health conditions

Thameside Medical Practice is working hard to deliver the flu jab to those patients aged 50 to 65 with no underlying health conditions, as announced by the Government today. We are working closely with our NHS Colleagues to meet the national challenge to supply General Practice with enough immunisations and personnel to deliver this vaccination programme.

PLEASE DO NOT contact the Practice to book an appointment for this vaccination before 1st December as we are in the process of ordering sufficient stock and cannot schedule appointments until vaccine delivery dates have been confirmed. We will send you an invite by text once we know when stock will be available. If you do not have access to text messaging, please check this website for up-dates.

Advice for women: breast screening

Some women aged between 70 and 79 are being offered the opportunity for a breast screen. The offer of a screen comes after some women did not receive an invitation for a final screen, as part of the routine NHS Breast Screening Programme. This problem dates back to 2009.

NHS Breast Screening Services have apologised, and are writing to all affected women who are registered with a GP to offer them the opportunity for a screen and further information by the end of May 2018. A free helpline is available if they need more advice.

The helpline number is: 0800 169 2692

However, if you are not currently registered with a GP and believe you did not receive an invitation for a screen between your 68th – 71st birthdays then we advise that you get in touch with the helpline on 0800 169 2692.

For information from NHS Choices on missed invitations for breast cancer screening see: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/breast-cancer-screening/missed-invitations/

Do you know you can use online services to book and cancel an appointment, request a prescription, and view your online health record? If you are not already signed up for this service and you are interested to do so, please fill in the form held at reception. You will need to return the completed form to the receptionist with photographic ID. You can then access some of your records, order prescriptions and make appointments.
