New Telephone System


On Thursday 25th January 2018, Milton House Surgery is changing to a new telephone system and provider. This will feature call queuing and will eliminate the engaged tone that callers can experience during busy periods, improving telephone access to the surgery.


Changing telephone providers can be a tricky process and we ask that patients check the practice website for announcements should they experience problems getting in touch with the surgery around 25th January 2018. We will have mobile telephone backup available during the handover period.

Seasonal Flu Vaccination

flu vaccinationsFlu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
