Flu Vaccination Programme
Flu vaccine is now available and we would encourage all patients in the eligible groups to attend: over 65’s, chronic respiratory disease, heart, kidney, liver or neurological disease, diabetes, immunosuppressed, pregnant woman and carers. Further information can be obtained at reception. Any patients’ outwith the criteria can get a flu vaccination privately at participating outlets eg. Pharmacies or shopping centres. All Children aged 2-5 years will be offered nasal flu vaccine this year - please phone for an appointment with the practice nurse.
The practice will be providing new extended hours surgeries from 1st August 12 at Lochwinnoch Practice. Evening appointments will be available between 5.30 pm and 6.45 pm once per week; alternating Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Appointments must be booked in advance and the practice will close at 6 pm as normal with emergency calls being dealt with by the out of hours service.
Although these appointments are available to all our patients, we would like to accommodate those patients who are working outwith the village or those at risk of losing a days pay to attend an appointment. We would therefore request that you only ask for a late evening appointment if you cannot attend at any other time. Anyone who requires further investigations, including blood tests will have to attend in the mornings to accommodate transport and Laboratory systems.
