FLU VACCINES - HELP US TO PROTECT YOU
This time last year we ordered in our flu vaccines for our eligible patients. We are delighted that they have arrived and we can start protecting our patients from the influenza virus.
If you are eligible - over 65 or in one of the at risk groups e.g. diabetic, coronary heart disease, COPD etc please ask at reception or discuss with your GP/nurse when you attend the practice. We will check whether you are eligible for any other vaccines whilst you are with us. We welcome seeing you each year for your flu vaccine and spend a lot of time planning our flu campaign to ensure that our patients are vaccinated. Please support us, by attending for your flu vaccine that we have reserved for you.
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
Via the new Waiting Room Software - See the link below and you can complete the form, return it to us and register for "the Waiting Room" software. This will enable you access to your repeat prescriptions to order directly from our system. An individual email address is required for each user.

We are happy to send your prescription to a pharmacy of your choice in the Helston area. Please indicate on your counterfoil which chemist you prefer - please allow an extra couple of days for the pharmacy to receive and dispense the items.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication from the dispensary. If you are collecting from the chemist of your choice you should add another day. Please also remember to make allowances for weekends and public holidays.
