FLU CLINICS NOW AVAILABLE
We are aware that you are being asked by Pharmacists to have your flu jab with them and stating it takes the pressure off GP surgeries. We would prefer you to have the vaccination here as it gives our nurses an opportunity to see if there is anything outstanding in your records e.g. blood tests, blood pressure check etc.


If you are aged 65 or over, pregnant, or have a chronic condition (Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, history of splenectomy etc.) you may be eligible for a flu jab.
Please contact Hickings Lane Medical Centre to book your flu appointment



Did you know that you can now order repeat prescriptions and book routine GP appointments online? If you would like access to this service please ask at reception or see our online services page for details.

Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

We have a Carers Champion in the Practice, Marcia Gilbert, who would be happy to help in obtaining information about support that may be available for you. 

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
