Care Data Programme

Confidential information from your medical records can be

used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we

can provide the best possible care for everyone.

This information along with your postcode and NHS number

but not your name, are sent to a secure system where

it can be linked with other health information.

This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out

medical research to use information from different parts

of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information

to be used in this way you do not have to do anything.

If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from

happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at

reception for a copy of the leaflet “How information

about you helps us to provide better care”.

ITS FLU SEASON!!

Flu is an unpredictable virus that can cause mild or unpleasant illness in most people.

It can cause severe illness and even death among vulnerable groups including older people, pregnant women and people with an underlying health condition.

Certain people are more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as bronchitis and pneumonia. These people are advised to have a flu jab each year.

For otherwise healthy people, flu can be very unpleasant. Most people will recover from flu within a week or two.

Who should have the flu jab?

The injected flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to people who are at risk. This is to ensure they are protected against catching flu and developing serious complications.

You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you: 

  • are 65 years of age or over   
  • are pregnant 
  • have certain medical conditions 
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility 
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill

PLEASE CALL PICTON MEDICAL CENTRE TODAY SO SEE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE FLU JAB!

After this date you will no longer be able to claim Pharmacy First provisions to adults.

Provision for children (under 18yrs) can continue until at least 31st March 2017. The CCG is reviewing whether they intend to commission Pharmacy First for children after this date and will keep you updated accordingly.
