It is important that your contact details are up to date. If you have changed your mobile number, e-mail address or any other details recently or if you are unsure if we have your correct details, please check with us on your next visit -

National Shortage Vaccination

Please be aware that there is currently a nationwide shortage of pneumococcal vaccines and therefore there is a limited supply available.

We will update the website when we have more information. If you need more information contact our reception team.

 

Are you a Carer or do you know someone who is?

At Thurleigh Road Practice, we are keen to know which of our patients are Carers. If we don't know already, please let us know on your next visit as there may be additional support and services available to you. Please speak to our Reception team or your GP/Nurse.
There are also a number of online resources available to you.

Who is a carer?
A Carer is someone who provides support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is  ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems. All the care they give is unpaid.

Anyone can becore a Carer. Carerrs come from all walks of life and can be any age: some are children and young adults. Many feel they are just doing what anyone else would do in the same situation looking after their mother, son, or best friend and just getting on with it.
