The Active Wellbeing service is here at Bildeston Health Centre to help you become more physically active. Please take a look at the link above. 

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.

CARERS

Caring for a relative, child, partner or friend who has a physical or learning disability or a mental health problem can cause a feeling of isolation. You may not even see yourself as a carer.

Here at the surgery we have developed a carers support group. This provides a forum for support, discussion and mutual understanding. we have links to outside agencies and can try to signpost you to the help or support you may need. 

The group meets on the last Tuesday of each month from 1.30pm to 3.30pm and we would love to see you.

If this is something that may be of interest to you please contact me directly or leave your contact details with a member of the reception staff.

Louise Bissett  Dispensary Manager
