FLU INVITE LETTERS FROM NHS ENGLAND
We have taken hundreds of phone calls from patients who have received a reminder letter about having their flu vaccination from NHS England.
Please DO NOT contact the surgery about this and, please be assured that your records are up to date.
However, if you are over the age of 65 years and have not had a flu vaccine and would like one, please contact the surgery to book this or be added to our waiting list. Thank you.

Any temporary residents needing to be seen should call their own surgery first. The majority of patient consultations are being carried out by phone during the Covid crisis, so by calling your own surgery you will be dealt with by a clinician who has access to your full notes. Please note we are unable to provide electronic prescriptions for temporary residents although your own surgery should be able to do this, even for a pharmacy in Cornwall.
Helston Medical Centre & Porthleven Surgery
If you are attending the surgery for an appointment, please can we ask you to come wearing a mask or face covering such as a scarf.
We are open for business as usual, but please note that all requests for an appointment will be dealt with by telephone first. It is safe to come to the surgery if we ask you to however, as we have procedures in place to ensure that social distancing is respected and all clinicians will be wearing the appropriate PPE.
The best way to contact the surgery is by using eConsult - simply click on the link above or visit the NHS App. By staying away from the surgery sites, unless attending an appointment, you are helping to fight COVID-19.
