People who should have a flu vaccine

The injected flu vaccine is offered free of charge on the NHS to people who are at risk. This is to help protect them against catching flu and developing serious complications.

You should have the flu vaccine if you: 

  • are 65 years of age or over   
  • are pregnant 
  • have certain medical conditions 
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility 
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill 

The vaccine is also available at the surgery for children who are aged 2 and 3 on August 31 2018 – that is, born between September 1 2014 and August 31 2016, and for children over the age of 6 months with a long-term health condition.

Have your say on Community Services

People who live within the North East Hampshire and Farnham area may receive care in a number of ways, including services within the community such as District Nursing, Podiatry Clinics or Specialist Nurses for conditions such as diabetes or respiratory conditions. These services are overseen by NHS North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). 

Approximately every five years the CCG reviews the services it commissions, particularly looking at patient/public experience, local health and care needs, how the population is changing and learning from other areas of service.  This information is then used to help plan for future service provision including the development of new specifications, and new measures to assess performance and quality.

To give your feedback on these services, please click on the following link and complete the questionnaire.
