Whooping Cough in pregnancy

There has recently been a rapid rise in whooping cough, with a big increase in young babies. Due to this information it is important that we protect those young babies who may suffer. The babies that suffer are usually too young to have their first vaccinations, therefore the only way pregnant ladies can protect their baby is to have the vaccination themselves while they are pregnant. The best time to get the vaccination is between 28 and 32 weeks. Please contact the surgery for more information.

 

Pneumonia

Anyone aged 65 and over is entitled to Pneumonia vaccinations from the NHS. If you fall into this age catagory and have not previously had this vaccination please contact the surgery, for an appointment.

What does this mean?
We are happy to see and treat patients under sixteen years old without their parents permission if we are satisfied they are able to understand the consequences. This Practice believes that everyone has the right to confidentiality; you can be sure that anything you discuss with any member of this Practice - doctor, nurse or receptionist - will stay confidential. Only in exceptional circumstances, such as if someone is in physical danger, would we possibly pass on information to a third party (and then only after discussion with the patient).

If you have been referred to this site by eefo, let us know when you contact us as this will help us to tailor our service to your needs.
