The Winter Vaccination Programme 2021

 

The Winter Vaccination Programme will start in September 2021.

 

You can find out if you’re in a priority group eligible for a flu vaccine on NHS inform

 

We don’t have all the details at the moment but we can tell you:

 

  • You will not get your vaccine at your GP surgery
  • You will get your vaccine at a clinic set up to vaccinate large numbers of people quickly
  • You will have a pre-booked appointment or be invited to make a booking at a vaccination clinic.

 

Details on the vaccination clinics are being finalised and when supplies of vaccines become available we will update this page as soon as we have more information.

 

Please don’t phone the practice as we don’t have any additional information for the moment.

Please keep an eye on our website or NHS inform

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
