The recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer is that people at-risk (e.g. with a chronic disease such as diabetes or COPD), patient's over-65, pregnant women, carers and those whose Body Mass Index (BMI) is over-40 should be vaccinated against influenza annually.
People in clinical risk groups have a significantly higher risk of dying as a result of flu than the general population: diabetics are six times more likely to die, and those with chronic liver disease are 48 times more likely to die from the flu.
Also, children aged 2-4 years before 1st September 2017. Children can attend our weekly childhood immunisation clinics.
We routinely visit residential and nursing homes and there is no need for these patients to come to a walk-in clinic.
Clinics FOR OUR PATIENTS will be held at Hardwicke House, Stour Street, Sudbury at the following times:
Saturday 23rd September - 9.00am - 1.00pm
Saturday 7th October - 9.00am - 1.00pm

TAKE OUR SURVEY
Every year the practice undertakes a Patient Survey to look at a wide range of areas of interest to the practice and to our patients. We have designed this survey with our Patients' Group and annually review the questions we ask to ensure they are still pertinent. Your response will be completely anonymous but the information you give will be very important in helping us plan our services in the future.
You can complete the survey online here. If you prefer not to complete the survey online, you can download a printable version here. You will need to return this to reception at any of the surgeries once you have completed it.
There is a Saturday morning surgery at Meadow Lane (9.00 am - 12.30 pm). Appointments for these surgeries must be booked in advance and are open to all our patients irrespective of where they are normally seen.
