Drop in Flu Clinic 6.30pm to 7.30pm 11th December 2019  - Who needs protection against flu?

Flu is more likely to be serious if you have a long-term health condition, are pregnant, or are 65 or older. Every year in Wales three-quarters of a million people have a flu vaccine. If any of the following apply to you, you are more likely to get complications from flu. So even if you feel healthy, you should have a flu vaccine if:

You are pregnant

You are aged 65 or over

You live in a residential or nursing home

You have a heart problem

You have a chest complaint or breathing difficulties, including asthma that needs regular steroid inhalers or tablets

You have kidney disease

You have lowered immunity due to disease or treatment (such as steroid or cancer treatment)

You have liver disease

You have had a stroke (or mini stroke)

You have diabetes

You have a neurological condition, for example multiple sclerosis (MS), cerebral palsy or post-polio syndrome

You have a problem with your spleen, for example sickle cell disease, or you have had your spleen removed

You have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
