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.

Home Visits

homevisitsWe make home visits to those who are too ill or infirm to come to the surgery. In all other circumstances we prefer to see patients at the Surgery, as it is often helpful to have the surgery facilities and practice team to hand.

If you are in doubt as to whether a home visit is appropriate please telephone and ask. Please discuss visits with us whenever possible before 10:00am.

Please do not be surprised if the receptionist asks for details of your illness as this helps us with planning priorities.  The doctor may need to ring you back.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Surgery.
