It's still 'flu season!

Australia is just coming out of its winter and has seen a significant increase in the number of patients with flu - 200,000 cases and more then 100 deaths. The impact of flu on Australia is an accurate indicator of what we might expect during our winter.

The flu vaccination can help protect you and you may be entitled to have it. We still have plenty in stock so if you are over 65, pregnant or in an 'at risk' group, please book an appointment. You can call us on 023 92583302. Please ensure you have your 'flu vaccination at the Medical Centre. Doing so means that a record of your vaccination is put on your medical record, we can check that you are well and we are doing everything possible for your health.

Patients can telephone the surgery between 11.00am and 2.00pm daily and choose option 2 to speak to a member of the results team who will be able to help you interpret the results and make an appointment if necessary.

Although our automated service allows direct access to the results team during these hours you can still call and speak to a receptionist who will be able to transfer you between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday.
