Seasonal Flu vaccination

The winter vaccination programme has started. If you are eligible for a free flu vaccine, you will get a letter from NHS Scotland. This will either give you an appointment date and time at one of the flu vaccination clinics in Lothian, or instruct you to make an appointment using an online portal.

If you are eligible for a COVID booster, you may get this at the same time as your flu jab, but this is not guaranteed, and you may have to attend two separate appointments.

You will not get your flu or COVID jabs at your GP practice. Please do not contact the surgery about your flu or COVID jab appointments.

If you have received a letter with an appointment that you are unable to attend, you can rearrange your appointment online at  Alternatively you can call the Lothian helpline on 0300 790 6296 for assistance with re-booking.

If you are housebound, your jabs will be given to you by the housebound team, and they will be in touch to arrange this.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy

Using light touch on the clothed body, CST encourages a deep release of muscular tension.  This allows the body's self-correcting mechanism to guide the treatment allowing restricted and painful areas to loosen and re balance.

CST is useful for:

  • chronic pain
  • neck and back pain
  • headaches and migraine
  • aiding recovery after injury or trauma
  • sleep/feeding problems in babies
  • behavioural or learning difficulties in children
