We will soon be starting our seasonal influenza vaccination campaign, and are already booking our patients into our flu clinics, being held on Saturday 5th October and Saturday 26th October. If you are eligible for an influenza vaccination (flu jab) please call in and book your place now.
This year, there are different vaccines for the different age groups so please let the reception know your age when you book in for your jab.
Note: children in reception class and school years 1 to 5 will be vaccinated at school this year.
From July 25% of our GP appointments will be available to book online (a mix of pre-bookable and same day appointments) so, if you haven't done so already, you might like to consider registering for Patient (Online) Access. Pop into the Health Centre (please bring photo ID with you) and fill in a simple form, and we will be able to create a registration document for you.
Our new GP
We are very pleased to announce that Dr Patrick Hart, will be taking up a position of Salaried GP at the surgery as of 1st April 2019. Many of you may have already seen Dr Hart as he has been a registrar at the practice for a while.
Patrick originally hails from North Devon, and graduated from Cardiff University in 2010. After working in both New Zealand and South Africa he made the decision to settle in the West country. He loves Somerset for its countryside and excellent cycling; he still manages to get back to Devon once in a while to head to the beach and to check in with the family.
We would all like to welcome Patrick to the Glastonbury Health Centre Team, and we look forward to many more year's working together.
It is with sadness that after nearly 13 years working at the Health Centre, Jayne (one of our Health Care Assistants) retired from the Practice. Her last working day was Wednesday 6th March 2019.
The Partners, Managers & Staff would like to thank Jayne for her loyal service to the practice, and wish her a long and happy retirement.
There is a new service offering advice and support to carers in Somerset. For more information visit the Somerset Carers Service website, or give them a call on 0800 3168 600. If you would like to be referred to the service, have a chat with our new Carer's Champion, Jo.
Green Impact for Health

We are currently promoting inhaler recycling – look out for posters around the practice and ask your pharmacist about recycling your old inhalers. Currently Boots in Glastonbury High Street and Tesco Pharmacy on Wirral Park Road are taking part in the scheme.
