FLU CLINICS 2019
The Buxted Medical Centre is still running flu clinics for all at risk patients aged 18-64 and all patients aged over 65
If you would like to book in for your FREE FLU JAB or if you are unsure if you are eligible please call Buxted on 01825 732333, East Haothly on 01825 840943 or Manor Oak on 01435 812323. Some "on line" appointments are also available for booking.
FREE SHINGLES VACCINATIONS are available for eligible patients aged 70 or 78 years old. In addition, anyone who was previously available (born on or after September 2nd 1942) but missed out on their shingles vaccination remains eligible until their 80th birthday. It is safe and may be more convenient for you to have the shingles vaccination at the same time as your flu jab. Please ask reception.
We know that many of you are keen to self manage where possible but aren't always sure where best to get your information from. So, we would like to develop a self care strategy for our practice. Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) already displays information in the reception area at Buxted on selected topics.
We might include a self care area on this website which you can access to get info and also find links to useful websites and leaflets to help you when appropriate, rather than seeking an appointment.
We would also like to know of any other ways you might want information about health and long term conditions, that we do not already offer, such as via YouTube or educational talks. The link below gives access to very useful information on common complaints eg sore throat, strains and sprains and the common cold
Patients are invited to read our newsletter which also gives useful a useful update both on practice information and health related topics. Our current Health Awareness topic is " All About Arthritis". Please look under the Have your say-Patient Group- section of this website for further information
Help and advice from our Pharmacy Manager
Nick Humby joined the team in April 2018 as our Pharmacy Manager. He works every weekday except Wednesday when our Superintendent Pharmacist Bridget will be here. Nick has a wealth of experience and can give lots of help and advice on minor ailments and medication.
Enhanced Telephone System
In response to comments from our patients we have now enhanced our telephone system by introducing a new queuing system which is now operational at both Buxted and East Hoathly. Please tell us what you think of this system - we always value patient feedback.
