Protect yourself from Measles and Flu

Important!, Medical

Protect yourself and your family/ community

You will be aware of a rise in measles cases in recent weeks/ months,  including in London and Birmingham.  Hospitals are seeing more admissions.  Measles can be a serious illness.  We have vaccine in stock,  and can check your records to see if you are up to date.  Normally the MMR is given at age 1,  with second at age 3 .  We are offering catch up for anyone who hasn't had 2 jabs,  at any age.  Speak to reception or to nursing team.

We also still have flu vaccines for this winter in stock.  There are still those winter illnesses circulating.  Keep well

Online Record Access for patients

Important!, Medical

We have for some years offered online access to records via the NHS App / NHS login. We are rolling this out on an opt-in basis . It is on offer to patients age 16 and over. Read on to find out more. For under 11s, it is possible for parents or guardians to get “proxy access” . Between age 11 and 16 it is more complicated, and an ethical approach is needed. We need to respect the confidentiality of the young person, whilst often they would wish their parents/ guardians to be involved in their care.
