FLU SEASON IS HERE!
It is now, more than ever, important to get your Flu vaccination please book in as soon as you can by calling 01274 782080.
'Flu is an unpredictable virus that can be unpleasant, but if you're otherwise healthy it'll usually clear up on its own in about a week.
It can cause severe illness and even death among vulnerable groups, including older people, pregnant women and people with an underlying health condition.
Certain people are more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as bronchitis and pneumonia.
These people are advised to have a flu vaccine each year.' - NHS.uk
