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. 

Care Plans

Patients with long-term, complex medical conditions are entitled to  a personalised care plan.  This plan collects together all the information that will be relevant to help you and/or your carers manage your condition at home.

This plan is written with your input and is signed by both you and your GP.  This plan is reviewed annually  and certainly after any unplanned admissions to hospital or visits to Accident & Emergency to see if your care could be handled differently.  If you feel the care plan is not working, you can ask for a care plan review.
The Care Plan will be printed off for you to keep at home - make sure your family or carers know where it is in the event of an emergency.  The plan will also be stored within your computer medical records.
All the information in the care plan is private seen only by you and the people who give you care or support.  If you want someone else to be allowed to see the care plan you can say so.
