FLU VACCINATIONS: DON'T MISS YOUR FLU VACCINATION! Flu occurs every year, usually in the winter, which is why it’s sometimes called seasonal flu. It’s a highly infectious disease with symptoms that come on very quickly. Colds are much less serious and usually start gradually with a stuffy or runny nose and a sore throat. A bad bout of flu can be much worse than a heavy cold. The most common symptoms of flu are fever, chills, headache, aches and pains in the joints and muscles, and extreme tiredness. Healthy individuals usually recover within two to seven days, but for some the disease can lead to hospitalisation, permanent disability or even death.  Appointments for flu vaccinations for eligible patients (over 65s and those under 65 in relevant at risk groups) are now available to book at Topcliffe Surgery in November. We are also offering Pneumococcal and shingles vaccinations for eligible patients.  Please speak to a member of the reception team or see 'Latest News' for more information.

Confidentiality for Young People

We, as health professionals, are here to listen, not to tell.

We provide a confidential service to all our patients-including those under 16 years of age.

If there is something that you feel you need to tell your doctor, but cannot tell a parent or loved one, you must feel able to approach us for an appointment. It is only in exceptional circumstances, for example if your life or another's life is in danger, that we would breach confidentiality and discuss your case with a relevant other. Even in this situation, we would inform you what we were about to do, and preferably obtain your permission.

If in doubt. ASK.
