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.

BEWARE OF SCAMMERS

 There is heightened coverage around the recent Coronavirus outbreak around the world, which is now severely impacting on the UK and the NHS. 

 Unfortunately fraudsters are targeting these circumstances to take advantage of public fear and concern

 We have been made aware that our patients are receiving phone calls, texts and letters from fraudsters. They will try and obtain your personal details and in particular your NHS number.

 Scammers are sophisticated, opportunistic and will try many ways to get the information they want. They often target the vulnerable.

 If you are suspicious, do not give any details over the phone, hang up and then ring Cantilupe Surgery to confirm.
