Christmas Eve Closing
Due to the traditional dip in demand for our services on the afternoon of Christmas Eve, this year we will be closing our branch surgery at Long Hanborough from 1300. The Pharmacy and Dispensary at Long Hanborough will remain open. Our main site at Eynsham will stay open to provide urgent medical services until our closing time of 1830 but the dispensary will be closed from 1300. If you have medication to collect for the holiday period please ensure you order and collect this in good time, ideally in the week commencing 16th December.
We will then be closed on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th December.
Open on Friday 27th December Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st December.
Closed Wednesday 1st January after which we will be open as usual.
Yellow fever vaccine
The supply of yellow fever vaccine in the UK is currently compromised. Until further notice we have no stock of yellow fever vaccine so we are unable to provide this service. The estimated time for supplies to return to normal is January 2013. The vaccine may still be available from other yellow fever centres but you will need to check with the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC).

Is your child at risk of catching measles?
A national catch-up programme to increase MMR vaccination uptake in children and teenagers was announced on Thursday 25 April by Public Health England (PHE), NHS England and the Department of Health. The aim of the programme is to prevent measles outbreaks by vaccinating as many unvaccinated and partially vaccinated 10-16 year olds as possible in time for the next school year.
If your child is aged 10-16 years old and has not received the necessary vaccinations you should receive a letter inviting you to make an appointment. If you have not received a letter and you think your child may need vaccinating please contact your GP surgery as soon as possible.
Patients over the age of 16 who feel that they may be at risk of contracting measles may request the MMR vaccination.
