Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus. The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains. You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.

Thankfully most of us are not susceptible to this disease, but we do recommend that certain members of the community get immunised. You should seriously consider having the influenza vaccination if you can answer yes to one or more of the following questions:.

  • Are you over 65 years of age?
  • Do you have Asthma that needs continuous use of Steroid Inhalers?
  • Do you have Chronic Lung Disease?
  • Do you suffer with Heart Problems?
  • Have you got Kidney disease?
  • Do you have Liver disease?
  • Have you had a stroke or a ‘mini stroke’ (TIA)?
  • Do you have Diabetes?
  • Do you have low immunity at the moment e.g. chemotherapy or some drugs or a previous splenectomy?
  • Are you a main carer for an elderly or disabled person?
  • Are you pregnant?

ALL healthy children who are aged 2, 3 and 4 years old on 31/8/16 are also eligible – this is in the form of a nasal spray.
Flu vaccines should be available in the practice from the end of September. We will be sending out invitations via messages on your prescriptions, by email or by text messages to patients eligible for vaccination.

We have a weekend drop in clinic arranged on Saturday 8 October between 9am and 12 noon. There is no need to book in for this clinic just turn up on the day and book in at the reception desk.

Other clinics will be available after this date. Please check with our receptionists for details, or on our website which will be updated with new dates.

Statement of intent to provide detailed
coded patient medical records online

As you may know, from 31 March 2015 every patient now has access to an online summary of their medical record via SystmOne Online. Jenner Health Centre has an obligation under new NHS rules to provide detailed coded medical records online to its patients by 31 March 2016. The practice plans to have implemented this by the deadline of 31 March 2016 Further information will be available in due course.

Patient Participation Annual Report

Please click here for the annual report we provide to NHS England on the work the practice does engaging with our Patient Participation Group.


Summary Care Records – coming soon in early March!

The NHS in England has introduced the Summary Care Record, an electronic health record that can be accessed when you need urgent treatment from somebody other than your own GP.

Summary Care Records only contain key information about the medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had in the past. You will be able to add other information too if you and your GP agree that it is a good idea to do so.

In early March (9 & 10 March 2015) a summary care record will automatically be created for you and uploaded unless you choose to opt out.

If you wish to opt out, please download an opt out form from here, or ask for one at reception.

Please note: if you have already signed an SCR opt out form at this surgery in the last 6 years, you need take no further action as your SCR will not be uploaded.

If you are happy for your SCR to be uploaded you do not need to do anything.

For more information please visit or download our leaflet.



We are delighted to announce that Dr Simon Brown will be joining the Practice as a Partner from April 2015. Some of you will already know Dr Brown as he has been a regular locum for us over the last 12 months or so. Until April, Dr Brown will be at the practice for approximately two days a week and we are looking forward to him joining the team full time from April.


Fund Raising Event

Jenner Health Centres Patient Participation Groups show on Saturday 21 February raised over £900 which is an amazing total. This will be split between the charity Whittlesey Young Peoples Counselling Service, and the Practice to purchase equipment it wouldn’t normally be able to provide. We are very grateful indeed to the performers, sponsors, local businesses who provided raffle prizes, all those who came to the show and to the PPG for their time putting together this amazing fundraising event.
