Flu Clinic information for those patients aged Younger than 65 years.

The Government recommends that this group of patients have the Quadrivalent Vaccine.  This is the same vaccine that we used last year.  This year the manufacturer has made us aware of a delay with getting the vaccine to Practices, please see below:

“The World Health Organization (WHO) took a decision to delay the selection of the A/H3N2 strain of flu notification by one month. This has had an effect on the manufacturing timelines and will impact the vaccine time to market. Distribution will therefore commence a few weeks later than last season”

We will receive staggered deliveries of the vaccine during October and November.  We think we will have sufficient vaccines in order to run a clinic at the end of October.

Research Ready

Bildeston Health Centre is an active participant in General Practice research. We are keen to be a part of new ideas and treatments. Of course one cannot just blindly research things so we are part of the Royal colleges research ready group of practices.

Research Ready® is a quality assurance programme for all research-active UK GP practices. It is designed in line with the UK Research Governance Framework’s legal, ethical, professional, and patient safety requirements. The programme serves to provide information, support and guidance to accredited practices in research; both to assist with meeting the requirements above, and with considering and conducting research.

Dr Hainsworth is the lead in this and he has been Accredited to do so.
