2018 Flu Clinics

The National Flu Programme has changed this year. Everyone who qualifies for a flu jab will get one, but the changes mean that we need to give different jabs to different groups, and our flu jab supply will be arriving later than usual. We will be running our flu clinics late September and during October.

Please see the Flu Clinic 2018 under Clinics and Services for full details of this year's programme.

01865 903177

Our District Nursing service is currently under significant staff changes, and this means they are operating out of Wallingford. Our voicemail number is no longer being used and patients are being asked to phone the District Nursing duty desk on 01865 903177, which will be answered by District Nursing staff between 8am and 4pm. We would be grateful if patients could use this number from now on to contact the District Nursing team.

 The District Nursing service is designed for patients who cannot attend the surgery.

The service will accept requests for patients whose nursing needs are best met in the home environment or because the DN’s have the specialist skills to meet the specific needs of the patient.

Requests for a District Nurse may be made by:

  • Patients
  • Carers / relatives / friends
  • Any health or social care professional

Those who require nursing assessment and care in support of any of the following areas may be seen by a District Nurse. This list shows examples of the ways District Nurses can help..…

  • management and support of patients with long term conditions and illnesses eg diabetes, multiple sclerosis
  • palliative and end of life care
  • wound management eg post operative
  • wounds, leg ulcers
  • rehabilitation following surgery, disability, accident or illness
  • promotion of self care through education and teaching of carers
  • promotion of continence and assessment of continence problems
  • health promotion, advice and support.

Once your treatment is complete or you are well enough to receive your care in an alternative setting you may be transferred / discharged from the service.
