Flu Clinic 2019

East Barnwell Health Centre kicked off the Flu vaccination season on 5th October 2019 with a hugely successful Cake sale!, there was a huge selection of items for sale including homemade Jams, delicious Lemon drizzle and fruit cakes kindly made by Mrs Kathleen Baldwin and assisted by her husband, Mr Harold Baldwin.

Mr and Mrs Baldwin donated both the produce and their time and the team at East Barnwell health Centre are hugely grateful for all their time and effort!!

We raised a total of £ 180 which will be donated to the patients fund as we are hoping to regenerate the courtyard garden as our next project.

The practice is offering free flu vaccinations, to all those over 65 and those under 65 in an eligible risk group. Please contact the Health Centre to book your appointment or to speak to one of the Nurses regarding your eligibility.


Doctor Link

In the coming weeks we will be offering a new service called Doctor Link. Please see the Doctor Link page in the appointments section for more information.
