We want to get better at communicating with our patients.

We want to make sure you can read and understand the information we send you and that you can contact us in an accessible way.

Please let us know if you have a disability, impairment or sensory loss and find it hard to communicate with us, read our letters, or if you need someone to support you at appointments.

Please tell the receptionist if you require information and support in a certain way, for example:

  • If you need information in braille, large print or easy read.
  • If you need support from a professional such as a British Sign Language interpreter or advocate.
  • If we can support you to lip read or use a hearing aid or communication tool.

We will record what you tell us so we can best support you each time you require our services.



A vaccine to prevent shingles, a common, painful skin disease is available on the NHS to people in their 70s.

The shingles vaccine is given as a single injection into the upper arm. Unlike the flu jab, you'll only need to have the vaccination once and you can have it at any time of the year.

The shingles vaccine is expected to reduce your risk of getting shingles. If you do go on to have the disease, your symptoms may be milder and the illness shorter.

Shingles can be very painful and uncomfortable. Some people are left with pain lasting for years after the initial rash has healed. Shingles is also fatal for around 1 in 1,000 over-70s who develop it.

It's fine to have the shingles vaccine if you've already had shingles. The shingles vaccine works very well in people who have had shingles before and it will boost your immunity against further shingles attacks.

Who can have the shingles vaccination?

You're eligible for the shingles vaccine if you are aged 70 or 78 years old.

In addition, anyone who was previously eligible (born on or after 2 September 1942) but missed out on their shingles vaccination remains eligible until their 80th birthday.

When you're eligible, you can have the shingles vaccination at any time of year.

The shingles vaccine is not available on the NHS to anyone aged 80 or over because it seems to be less effective in this age group.


Are you a carer? We hold a register for carers on our practice computer system.
