FLU IMMUNISATIONS

The Children's annual flu nasal spray is offered free to children aged 2,3 or 4 on 31st August 2016 - (that is, children born between 1st September 2011 and 31st August 2014) to protect them against flu.

Flu can be a very unpleasant illness for children with potentially serious complications, including bronchitis and pneumonia.

The nasal spray flu vaccine has very few side effects - the main one is getting a runny nose for a few days after vaccination.

For children registered at the Practice please call the appointment line to book.

BOOKING APPOINTMENTS

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT BEFORE 8am

Please let us know if you need to cancel your appointment

On just one day this week 5 patients failed to turn up for appointments they had booked with our Practice Nurses. This is a frequent occurrence. You will appreciate that this is a serious waste of their time.  If you have an appointment booked with either a nurse or a doctor and you cannot attend please let us know so that this appointment can be offered to someone else. Thank you.

In Times of Bereavement

If Death Occurs At Home

1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.

2. Contact a funeral director.

3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).

4. Take this to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.

5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).

If The Death Occurs In Hospital

1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.

2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

Note For Cremation

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
