Public Health England have issued a warning about the current levels of flu. The following link gives information about symptoms and how treat them.
They have advised the following if you think you have flu:
- Rest and sleep
- Keep warm
- Take paracetamol or ibuprofen to lower your temperature and treat aches and pains
- Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration
Most cases of flu can be treated at home, please see the link above for advice on your symptoms and how to treat them.
Please do not attend the surgery if you can avoid it as this may increase the risk of spreading flu to vulnerable patients.
Where possible stay away from work and school for 24 hours after any fever has resolved.

The practice has introduced a feedback system called the Friends and Family Test for all patients and carers to let us know how we are performing. To access this please use the link above that will take you to the questionnaire. There will be facilities in the surgery to give your feedback electronically or on paper.
We welcome all feedback as it allows us to review how we are providing care and where we may need to consider changes.
Please remember that you can always give feedback via the NHS Choices website as well.
