Named accountable GP

It is now a contractual requirement that all patients, including children, have a named accountable GP. Dr. Guilding's Surgery is a single-handed practice and all patients are registered with him therefore he will be your named accountable GP.  Dr. Millais will continue to work at the practice and patients may request appointments with her in the same way as before.

Patient Participation Group

The Practice is keen to develop a PPG ( Patient Participation Group) for the purpose of obtaining the views of our patients and enabling the practice to obtain feedback from the our patients on the services we deliver. If you would like to be involved in this process please visit the ' Have your say' page of this web site and complete a registration form or ask at reception for a paper copy to complete.

 

 

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
