Flu is 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.
You are eligible for a free flu vaccination if you are:
- Over 65
- Have a Long Term Condition
- aged 2-3 years
- A Carer

This website has been designed to tell you about the practice and the services that we offer. Please read it carefully. We trust that you will find it helpful and informative.
The Surgery Reception is normally open from 8.30am to 6.00pm (for urgent matters 8.00am to 6.30pm), Monday to Friday. The Surgery does not open at lunchtime (12h45 - 13h45) but we are available for urgent situations which require attention before the Surgery re-opens in the afternoon.
We also offer early and late evening appointments, subject to availability.
Please note: in order to further improve the quality of care to our patients, the surgery will close one afternoon per month (currently the 4th Wednesday of every month). This is to participate in educational activities organised for the Mansfield and Ashfield Clinical Commissioning Group - the Education Committee is chaired by Dr Khalid Butt. However, we will continue to provide emergency cover during this time.
