FLU CLINICS FOR CHILDREN

We now have flu clinic appointments available for eligible children. We are only vaccinating healthy 2, 3 and 4 year olds and patients under the age of 18 in an 'at risk' category.

Children must attend their appointment with ONE parent/guardian.

All children in primary school and the first year of secondary school will be offered the flu vaccination at school.

2020 FLU VACCINATION CLINICS

The Practice will be commencing flu vaccination clinics in September. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic we have had to make alternations to how are clinics are run and booked.

Please read the information sheet linked below for details of the changes we have made, how to book an appointment and the dates/times of our dedicated flu clinics this year.

Flu Clinic Info Sheet


NOTICE REGARDING COVID ANTIBODY TESTING - Friday 5th June 2020

The practice is NOT presently in a position to offer the recently announced Covid antibody test. 

The sensitivity of antibody tests is not yet clear: there are clear examples of people who were confirmed (through PCR testing) to have had Covid-19, but in whom the antibody tests remain negative.

It remains unknown if having antibodies for Covid19 will prevent reinfection. 

It remains unknown if having antibodies prevents the ability to pass on the virus to others. 

The quality and duration of immunity is not yet clear. 

By the time the test becomes positive, the patient may no longer be infectious, so the test has little or no value in contact tracing and isolation. 


 

TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF ONLINE APPOINTMENT BOOKING

11th MARCH 2020

New Forest Central Medical Group has temporarily suspended booking appointments online to help stop the spread of COVID-19. This is to ensure that all appointments are triaged appropriately to protect the welfare of members of the public, other patients and staff members alike. We apologise for any inconvenience, we hope that you will understand and support us in this decision and we will reinstate the service as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

Patients that have made an appointment online will be contacted to find out if they have any symptoms.

If you need to book a GP appointment then please ring us on 01590 622272 OR 01590 682617. 

Thank you for your co-operation.
