Flu Information

Grove Medical Practice will be commencing its 2018/19 Winter Flu Campaign during September.

Invitation letters will be posted to those who are eligible to receive free annual vaccinations; if you have not received yours call the Practice.

There are four general categories of eligible patients with some patients crossing over into two or even three of the four; these are:

- Young children; invitation will be distributed to Parents / Guardian of children born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2016; those outside this age range should be invited to receive their vaccination from other providers such as their school. (Vaccine being delivered in October)

- Everyone over the age of 65. (Vaccines being delivered during September, October and November)

- People with caring responsibilities; if you either are for someone or have someone care for you please encourage the Carer to notify their GP.

- Patients who live with certain long term conditions. Patients medical records contain the information needed to allow GPs to identify them and offer the invitations.

We live in a connected society and NHS England makes great efforts to support GP's in identifying those most at risk; further information can be found from links on this page.
