Please contact the surgery to book your flu vaccination.

Clifton Road Surgery will be holding flu vaccination clinics on Saturday mornings starting from Saturday 28th September. We will also be holding drop in clinics at the surgery every day from 9am - 12pm and 2pm - 4pm. Please come into the surgery and ask at reception.

Clifton Road Surgery will be closed from 12.30pm on Wednesday 11th December for protected learning time.

Clifton Road Surgery would like to announce the arrival of our new Salaried GP, Dr Gower.  Dr Gower started as our salaried GP in August 2019 and holds clinics all day Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  With this in mind we wanted to remind you that every patient has a named GP.  Now Dr Gower is in place it has been necessary to allocate him as named GP to some of our patients.  Please note, anyone concerned or wanting clarification of their named GP can speak to Reception.  Please be assured those patients we will be changing will not be having regular on-going appointments/care.  If any patient has objections we will, of course, put you back to your previous GP.  We have consulted with our PPG who support the Practice in undertaking this.

Awards

Flu vaccinations are currently offered free of charge to the following groups:

  • people aged 65 years or over (including those becoming age 65 years by 31 March 2020)
  • all pregnant women (including those women who become pregnant during the flu season)
  • all those aged two, three, and four years old (but not five years or older) on 1st September 2019
  • all school-aged children who are part of the pilot childhood programme
  • people with a serious medical condition such as:
      • chronic (long-term) respiratory disease, such as severe asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or bronchitis
      • chronic heart disease, such as heart failure
      • chronic kidney disease at stage three, four or 5
      • chronic liver disease
      • chronic neurological disease, such as Parkinson’s disease or motor neurone disease
      • diabetes
      • splenic dysfunction
      • a weakened immune system due to disease (such as HIV/AIDS) or treatment (such as cancer treatment)
  • people living in long-stay residential care homes or other long-stay care facilities where rapid spread is likely to follow introduction of infection and cause high morbidity and mortality. This does not include, for instance, prisons, young offender institutions, or university halls of residence
  • people who are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an older or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill

The list above is not exhaustive and decisions should be based on a practitioner’s clinical judgement. Consideration should also be given to the vaccination of household contacts of immunocompromised individuals, specifically individuals who expect to share living accommodation on most days over the winter and therefore for whom continuing close contact is unavoidable.
