BOOK YOUR FLU VACCINATION APPOINTMENT NOW

 The GP’s at The Haven seek to encourage every eligible patient to have their free flu jab this year. Perhaps you are delaying booking an appointment until more is known about the Covid-19 booster programme, or you are hesitant because there were very few cases of flu last year and you feel fit and well at the moment? You may be waiting for more information from the government or from other reputable sources?  In any case, our sincere advice to our patients ,is that you should pre-book your flu vaccination appointment as soon as possible. 

Our receptionists are waiting to hear from you

The Role of First Contact physiotherapists (FCP's) in primary care is to assess patients with soft tissue, muscle and joint pain and support patients to decide on the most appropriate management pathway. You do not need to see your GP first as the FCPs are expert in the assessment of these conditions and are able to request investigations such as xrays and blood tests if it is required. FCP's are physiotherapists with expertise in the assessment and management of Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. They may also be known as an Advanced Practice Physiotherapist (APP) or MSK practitioners.

Social Prescribing Service 

Social Prescribing is a (non-medical) service that aims to help people with social, emotional or practical needs to improve both their health and wellbeing. It sees a broad range of people with differing social, emotional and practical needs, helping them access the right resources (e.g., groups, courses, activities, information, social connections, services, support, etc.) to meet those needs.

View the ‘What is social prescribing?’ video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9azfXNcqD8

They can then help you explore a range of options, such as groups, activities or services that can support you. Social Prescribing Link Workers go beyond simply providing information. They are able to listen, encourage you to try something new, help you find the right support and resources to meet your individual needs and make referrals for you, where necessary.
