Noticeboard

Notice: You will be aware that the practice website looks a little different.  This is because we have merged the websites of Newmarket Road Surgery and St Stephen’s Gate Medical Practice together to represent the one partnership we now are, operating over the two sites.  The new  website should allow you to find all the information you need easily and clearly.  All the online services such as booking appointments and ordering repeat prescriptions operate in exactly the same way as before.  If you notice anything is missing or not working correctly, especially those patients who were used to the old Newmarket Road Surgery website, do contact Rosemary Moore the practice manager who will investigate.

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
