50 - 64 Years old - Flu jab information

Flu Update 

We are aware of news reports suggesting patients between 50-64 years old (who are not clinically at risk) can now book a flu appointment with their GP Practice. 

This was news to us in GP practices also. 

While this has been discussed for some time, practices across England do not have a service specification & are not able to order vaccines for this group of people. We await further guidance around this new service.   

Please be assured that once we have the means to move forward with this service, patients will be contacted as soon as possible inviting you to make an appointment for a flu vaccine. 

This post does not affect those age over 65 years of age, or those who fall into a "clinically at risk" group.

Mental Health

Perhaps not unexpectedly we are experiencing a huge number of requests for referral to the Devon Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).

Please be aware you DO NOT NEED TO BE REFERRED BY A GP to access the service.

If you feel your young person warrants referral please access as below to avoid delay: https://bit.ly/3fw0iuZ
