THE ROYAL HOSPITAL FOR SICK CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE HAS NOW MOVED! IT IS NOW LOCATED AT 50 LITTLE FRANCE CRESCENT, EDINBURGH, EH16 4TJ


DATA PROTECTION NOTICE


The Flu campaign is happening now! 

More patients than ever before will be offered a flu vaccination this year - we will be offering it to over half our patients. We appreciate your patience as we contact each group of eligible patients to attend. 

We must prioritise vulnerable patients and vaccinate them first. 

  • Patients on our shielding list and patients who live with a shielding patient will be vaccinated at a priority clinic at Midlothian Community Hospital. These patients will receive a letter with further information about booking an appointment.
  • Housebound patients will be vaccinated by the community vaccination team. The practice will contact you with information on when they will visit you. 
  • Children aged 2-5 will have their Fleunz (nasal vaccine) organised by the Childhood Immunisation Team.
  • Patients over 65 and those in an at risk category will be contacted by the practice to make an appointment. 

The service the practice provides will be reduced during the flu campaign. There may be some days we provide an emergency service only.

Local pharmacies will also offer the Flu vaccine free of charge to patients with an underlying health condition. Go to NHS Inform or call 0800 22 44 88 for more information.
