Police forces have become aware of a fraud circulating targeting elderly and vulnerable members of the community.
Some people have received telephone calls from a caller who purports to be from a GP surgery and asks for an appointment to discuss the persons health or mobility needs. During the appointment, the older person is persuaded to buy mobility aids which are either unnecessary or inappropriate and always expensive.
If you receive a call like this, please check with your GP surgery first before agreeing to a visit.
Stay well this winter

Student protection for meningococcal disease
Public Health England is calling for students to get the MenACWY vaccine as cases of meningococcal disease - that can lead to meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning) - are anticipated to spike in the winter months. They are urging students to take up the vaccine during their university break before they return to university and halls of residence, where they are often in close contact with many other students.

NEW PHARMACY SCHEME
Community Pharmacy Consultation Service.
We are really pleased to launch a new service working in partnership with Community Pharmacy to increase the availability of appointments, specifically for minor ailments. When you contact the surgery for some conditions you may be offered a referral appointment with a highly qualified Pharmacist.
An appointment will be created and texted to your phone with a time and place (you will have a choice as to which Pharmacist to visit).
The programme has been rolled out nationally and 9 out of 10 patients have their ailment resolved on the same day.
You may be asked to pay for medication that would not normally be given on prescription.
This service will allow patients to access care faster and reduce pressure on the GP surgery to provide the most urgent care to those requiring it.
