ARE YOU AGED 17 OR 18?
(Date of birth 1/9/1996 – 31/8/1997)
If so the Department of Health has introduced a new vaccination against Meningococcal ACWY.
This vaccination is being introduced into the national immunisation programme for England this year to respond to a rapid and accelerating increase in cases of invasive meningococcal group W (MenW) disease, which has been declared a national incident. The MenACWY conjugate vaccine will provide direct protection to the vaccinated cohort and, by reducing MenW carriage, will also provide indirect protection to unvaccinated children and adults.
If you are within this age group please ask at reception for an appointment
Patients aged 70-72 (date of birth 2/9/1942 to 1/09/1945 or aged 78-79 (date of birth 02/09/1935 to 01/09/1937) should also be vaccinated against Shingles. Appointments can be booked through the surgery, please make an appointment at Reception. Patients outside of these age groups will be called for vaccination at a later date.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST
Have you taken part in our Friends and Family Test recently? Please continue to provide comments by completing the survey which can be found under "Have your say" on the right hand side of the screen or alternatively complete a Friends and Family Test postcard in Reception.
This survey provides the opportunity for you to tell us what you think about your experience, good or bad.
Mere has had general medical services for many years, previously served by single handed doctors in their homes, we moved to the current purpose built premises to meet the demands of modern medicine in 1990.
We aim to combine the best of a traditional country practice with the best of the new NHS. Our small size allows us to provide a very personal service and we value continuity of your care. We encourage you to remain with one doctor for a particular problem.
We deliver a versatile range of appointments to suit your needs, the range includes routine or same day appointments, morning, afternoon and evening opening times and we aim to allow easy access to your doctor or nurse on the telephone also.
Being so far from a hospital, we bring many services into our surgery saving you travelling time, parking issues and the like. We particularly value our in house physiotherapy service, and the visiting specialists that use our premises to consult. We value our good communications with hospital specialists and hope that we can help any medical journey run smoothly.
