NHS Flu Jabs
Dear Patient, Seasonal influenza is a serious infection that affects thousands every year. Most of us are able to combat it with rest and over the counter remedies from the pharmacy. But for some, it can have devastating consequences, such as worsening of current health conditions and in extreme cases, death. The NHS endorses the provision of a FREE flu jab for people in high risk categories. This includes patients aged 65 years and over, patients with existing health conditions such as respiratory disease, heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, neurological disease (e.g Parkinson's disease), Immunocompromised patients (e.g patients undergoing chemotherapy), diabetes and those who have problems with their spleen. Other categories covered are patients who are pregnant, patients living in long stay resential care homes and those receiving a care allowance for being the main carer for a person. Our service is aimed primarily at patients who fall into these categories. However, we can provide a flu jab if you are not eligible under the NHS. This is chargeable at £8 per patient. NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY! Just walk in at your convenience and we can administer a flu jab for you in the privacy of our consultation room. Our service has grown in popularity since 2013, when we began administering flu jabs as a new service. Patients recognise the convenience of a walk in service rather than booking an appointment at the GP surgery, and feel at ease that the vaccine is being administered by a professionally trained pharmacist. So if you fall into the NHS eligibility criteria, or simply want to protect yourself from flu this year, pop in to Star Pharmacy for your flu jab. GET THE FLU JAB BEFORE FLU GETS YOU!

Latest Advice
Symptoms
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste  

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
  • Visit NHS 111 Online for more information

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible
