Annual Flu Clinics 2020
We are finalising our clinics at the moment as we are having to do things a little differently this year.
Our first 2 clinics have been very successful for the 65 and over age group.
We will be delivering smaller clinics in the next few weeks to make sure those most vulnerable have been vaccinated
We are just starting to finalise clinics for the under 65s so watch this space. We will be inviting those patients who are at risk first and only after these patients are covered and if we have any vaccine left will we invite other patients.
PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US!
WE WILL CONTACT YOU VIA TEXT OR TELEPHONE WITH YOUR ALLOCATED APPOINTMENT SLOT DETAILS AND INSTRUCTIONS.
(Please note that people in the 50-64 year age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.
If you are in the 50-64 age group and are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example, you have a health condition that puts you at risk from flu then you will be invited in earlier)
AGAIN PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US -WE WILL UPDATE YOU HERE ON THE WEBSITE AND ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE.

Lancashire and South Cumbria has been chosen by NHS England to be a national pilot for the digitisation of Medical Records. Scanning these paper based records and making them digital will enable better utilisation of space, creating more clinical space, staff areas, multi team space and video hubs, removing the need for some practices to build extensions. In addition it will also make your record more easily and speedily accessible to clinical staff within your practice.
Your complete GP medical record will be digital and stored in a secure cloud based clinical system (only accessible by your GP practice) with the paper based records being securely destroyed following BS EN 15713:2009 Secure destruction of confidential material. Your GP will still be able to access your records easily within this system. The scanning and destruction of the paper records will follow strict data protection guidelines adhered to by the NHS. As with paper based records, digital records are stored for the durations specified in the Records Management Codes of Practice for Health and Social Care. For GP patient records, this states that they may be destroyed 10 years after the patient’s death if they are no longer needed.
If you wish to discuss the scheme, please inform the Practice direct either by letter or via e-mail insert surgery contact details
