FLU VACCINATION PLANS 2020

Cantilupe  Surgery is aware of the announcement today by the Department for Health and Social Care that anyone aged 50-64 has now been added to the eligible cohorts for this year's flu vaccine. We are now working to order additional vaccine supply and plan for more flu clinics in December. We ask that patients refrain from ringing the practice with inquiries on this and we will communicate the new arrangements for flu clinics in the near future.'

 This year, due to covid restrictions, we will be holding BOOKED flu clinics only.  We need to ensure our patients safety and ensure we vaccinate the most at risk first.  

 These will be held at BARTESTREE VILLAGE HALL.  All eligible patients will be called during October and November, depending on delivery of vaccines. Clinics will be on Saturdays and you will receive an invitation by letter with a booked slot time to attend. 

 Please bear with us!!  This is a challenging time for us all. We WILL write to you if you are entitled to a flu vaccination (over 65 or under 65 with a chronic illness) 

 Children aged 2 and 3 and patients who are pregnant will be called separately to these clinics as we receive vaccines.

 See our Facebook page  for up to date information. 

In Times of Bereavement

If Death Occurs At Home

1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.

2. Contact a funeral director.

3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).

4. Take this to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.

5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).

If The Death Occurs In Hospital

1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.

2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

Note For Cremation

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
