Grove Medical Practice will be commencing its 2017/18 Winter Flu Campaign during September.
Invitation letters will be posted to those who are eligible to receive free annual vaccinations.
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 2013 and 31 August 2015; those outside this age range should be invited to receive their vaccination from other providers such as their school.
- Everyone over the age of 65.
- 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.
