Minor Winter Illnesses
Don’t swallow up your NHS - use it wisely this winter
Every time you visit your GP it costs the NHS £45*
You can treat minor winter illnesses such as colds and coughs, sore throats, and upset stomachs easily at home with medicines, which you can easily buy at low cost from your local pharmacy.
Goals and Plans
North Brink Practice is working towards adding additional triage services to our standard process. Our goal is to help direct patients towards self care where necessary, allowing us to free up appointments to those patients who have chronic and on-going illnesses. With the winter months soon approaching, many of the illnesses that you will face (eg colds, coughs, sore throats and diarrhoea/vomiting) can be treated through self care and by visiting your local pharmacies. During the triage process we will ask patients a series of questions and direct appropriately. Rest assured that if we believe your illness requires attention from one of our clinicians then we will book you into the appropriate clinic
We are now booking appointments for this years flu vaccination.
We are still offering our flu clinic to those patients that are eligible. Please do not hesitate to contact our patient services team on 01945 660460 to find out your eligibility and to make an appointment.
Housebound Flu Vaccination
If you are a housebound patient and are unable to attend an in-house flu clinic we can arrange for our community district nurses to come out to administer this vaccination.
If you have not already done so, please contact the practice so that we can pass your name on to the community district nurses.
Please speak to someone on our patient services team and we will get this arranged for you.
