IT IS too BIG to IGNORE!
Vaccination is the most effective way to prevent infection. Although anyone can catch flu, certain people are at greater risk from the implications of flu, as their body may not be able to fight the virus.
If you are:
- 65 years or Over,
- a child aged 2-3 ,
- obese (with BMI>40),
OR suffer from asthma, diabetes or immunosuppression, have a heart, kidney or lung condition, have suffered a stroke or transient ischaemic attack, you are considered at greater risk from flu and the implications can be serious.
We had a great response to our 2 walk-in clinics on the 7th and 14th October with over 800 people seen in total!
If you missed these clinics, please do not hesitate to contact the surgery to book your appointment.
We changed our appointment system on 5th September 2016 to improve our booking system. This initiative, apart from a few early teething problems, has to-date bedded in remarkably smoothly with doctors, practice staff and importantly patients are pleased with how it has gone.

Wyre Forest Health Partnership
We are delighted to announce that on the 1st December 2015 we successfully completed the admission of Forest Glades Medical Centre and Kidderminster Health Centre into Wyre Forest Health Partnership. This means we now comprise 7 sites with 38 Partners looking after 73 000 patients, helped by 203 staff!
No staff were made redundant at the 2 incoming sites, during the process. Initially, the 2 new sites will sit more “ stand alone” as they work to integrate more closely with each other in advance of their relocation into their new building next summer. This was a very positive development, falling on WFHP’s first anniversary, and our increased size gives us more opportunities and strength for 2016 and beyond!
Clare Nock, Chief Executive Officer, Wyre Forest Health Partnership
'Working together across 7 sites, one valued and committed team, combining innovation and integrity to provide the best possible quality of care for our patients'
