Flu Clinic

The practice has now completed the annual flu clinic but if you are eligible for a flu injection you can still book an appointment with one of our reception team.

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.

We will be closed for Christmas on Monday 25th December and Tuesday 26th December 2017- We will also be closed Monday 1st January 2018

Our Health Partnership

We are pleased to announce that The Meadows Medical Practice is now part of Our Health Partnership

OHP

Named GP

From April 2015 the NHS requires that every patient registered with a Practice must have a named GP responsible for overseeing their care. This is something that we, at The Meadows, have done for many years; it is now a requirement that we let you know that this is what we do.

We would like to reassure patients that this will not affect their choice of GP.  All our GPs will continue to care for you in the same way as they always have done, having a named GP will not stop you from seeing the GP of your choice or stop them for caring for you to the best of their ability.

All our patients are free to choose which GP they see and which site they are seen on.

If you would like to know who your named GP is please ask us. If you have a preference for which GP is named on your medical record please tell us and we will accommodate it if we can.
