FLU VACCINE CLINICS ARE NOW BOOKABLE. PLEASE RING THE SURGERY TO ARRANGE AN APPOINTMENT.


Public Health England (PHE) has advised the public to ensure they have had two doses of MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) vaccine after outbreaks of measles have been confirmed across England. Anyone who is not sure if they are fully vaccinated is being advised to check with their GP practice. There have been 440 laboratory confirmed measles cases in England between 1 January 2018 and 9 May 2018. The increase in measles circulation is mainly associated with travel to and from Europe where there are large ongoing measles outbreaks. 



 


Take Care of Yourself 

tabs

Normally healthy patients can do a lot to treat their own minor illnesses during winter. Commonsense, advice from a pharmacist and some of the over-the-counter medicines will cure all sorts of winter illnesses.

  • Paracetamol & Ibuprofen: relieve most minor aches including headaches, period pain, sprains and inflammation due to arthritis.
  • Dioralyte: re-hydrates the body after diarrhoea or vomiting.
  • Antacids: relieve stomach ache, heartburn and trapped wind after over-eating at Christmas! 

REMEMBER – all tablets must be kept in sealed containers out of sight and the reach of children.

Things to keep in the First Aid Box or the bathroom cabinet:

  • Bandages: to support sprained or broken limbs and to hold pressure pads on deep cuts before being treated at the Minor Injuries Unit.
  • Plasters: keep a box of assorted sizes handy. Ensure wounds are clean and dry before applying.
  • Antiseptic fluid or cream: use it to clean wounds before applying a plaster or bandage. 

Call the surgery and speak to one of our nurses or dial 111 if you are not sure what to do.
