Noticeboard

On the 2nd March we had a full house at our regular coffee morning. We welcomed Robin from The Air Ambulance who came to tell us about the fantastic service they give. Some of us were surprised to learn that this is supported by the public raising funds to keep it air bourne. Quite a few people made a donation to their collection box and bought some of the merchandise Robin had brought along. The group then handed over a cheque for £100.00 on behalf of the coffee morning regulars and the practice. It was a lovely morning and everyone enjoyed it.

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
