FLU VACCINES - HELP US TO PROTECT YOU
This time last year we ordered in our flu vaccines for our eligible patients. We are delighted that they have arrived and we can start protecting our patients from the influenza virus.
If you are eligible - over 65 or in one of the at risk groups e.g. diabetic, coronary heart disease, COPD etc please ask at reception or discuss with your GP/nurse when you attend the practice. We will check whether you are eligible for any other vaccines whilst you are with us. We welcome seeing you each year for your flu vaccine and spend a lot of time planning our flu campaign to ensure that our patients are vaccinated. Please support us, by attending for your flu vaccine that we have reserved for you.
In order to promote flu vaccinations within the community we have specific clinics on Saturdays so that patients can come at a convenient time. The first will be on 23 September in Porthleven and the 30 September, 7, 14 and 21 October in Helston.

THE WAITING ROOM - Improved online access for your convenience
As well as being able to see when we are open at the click of a mouse we’ve made it easier for you to do a number of things. Check out how to order a repeat prescription or cancel your appointment online.
In addition we now have new software (The Waiting Room) that links into our clinical system. Through this you can view and order repeat medication, book online appointments and view areas of your medical record (currently allergies/intolerances). You will need a secure email address in order to register. There is a link below to the registration form or ask at reception.

CAR PARKING AT HELSTON MEDICAL CENTRE
Car parking remains an issue at the surgery and we are aware for safety purposes we may have to change how the car park is used. We would urge where possible patients and visitors to use the public car park across the road.
Registering is easy with online forms also available and appointment slots to suit most patients’ timetables. You’ll enjoy a confidential service in comfortable surroundings from a helpful and dedicated team.
