Patients on Long Term Opiod Pain Killers

We are working with Mid Essex CCG to highlight patients who are taking long term opioid pain killers. Recent information has shown that long term use of opioid medication may be more detrimental for patient's health than originally thought.

for eligible patients

  • We still have flu vaccines available
  • if you have an appointment booked with a doctor or practice nurse they will give your flu vaccination at that appointment

If you choose to attend the surgery for your flu jab, you will be vaccinated in a properly equipped consulting room or treatment room by a qualified member of our Nursing or GP Team; who will have access to your medical records and are properly trained for emergencies. 

You will also be supporting the Practice and help to ensure that resources are not removed from General Practice.

Please be assured that having your flu vaccination elsewhere does not 'help' the Surgery.

If you cannot make your appointment please do remember to cancel.

All patients who are aged 65 years or over on 31 March 2020 are eligible for a free flu vaccination.  Patients under 65 years of age on 31 March 2020 are eligible for a free flu vaccination if they meet certain criteria.  

Patients who are carers and pregnant women are also eligible for a free flu vaccination.

You should receive an invitation from the Surgery if you are eligible or you can check on the NHS web site using the following link:

Flu Scam

We have received a report that a Mid Essex patient has been targeted by a telephone fraud.

The scam involves the criminal telephoning an elderly patient to claim their practice cannot administer their flu jab. The patient is told they will have to attend a different venue that uses ‘a different type of needle’ for which there is a small charge.  The criminal then asks for bank details to take this charge – and removes a large sum from the patient’s account. 

Please be aware and where possible mention this to friends and family so they are not taken in by this scam.

Reception Closed between 8:00 and 8:30 am each morning

From Tuesday 1 October 2019 Reception will no longer deal with face to face requests for appointments, new patient registrations or any other queries.

This change is being implemented to ensure all of our patients have fair and equitable access to our appointment booking system.  Reception team members will therefore be able to concentrate on answering incoming calls from patients who require an appointment.
