PROTECTING TORQUAY AGAINST FLU
If you are eligible for flu vaccination, it is essential that you have a yearly jab to protect yourself from the flu virus.
When you have the jab, it not only protects you against the virus, it also increases community immunity. So when you have the jab it will help protect your children, elderly relatives, neighbours and all your friends and family.
Reports from Australia (where the flu season is ahead of ours) suggest that the UK could experience an unusually virulent and severe strain of the flu virus this winter. So – if you are eligible - it is especially important to come and have your flu injection as soon as you can.
ELIGIBILITY FOR FLU VACCINATION
You are eligible for a flu injection if you meet one or more of the following criteria;
Over 65 years old on 31st March 2020
Suffering from a long-term condition such as diabetes, asthma, COPD etc
If you are unsure whether you are eligible for a flu jab, please ask at reception.
Please ask at reception for details of how you can book in for your flu jab.

Welcome to Brunel Medical Practice
Brunel Medical Practice was formed in 2006 by the merger of the Kirkham Medical Practice and The Medical Practice, St Marychurch, becoming the largest practice in the Torbay area.
We are a friendly practice with five GP partners, one salaried GP and a retained GP, plus 11 nursing staff, from practice nurses to phlebotomists. Our clinical team also includes two paramedics, three clinical pharmacists and three Advanced Nurse Practitioners.
Our experienced and helpful administrative staff are spread across our three sites in Babbacombe, St Marychurch and Shiphay.
As a training practice, training 2nd and 5th year medical students as well as providing registrar training on a six month rotation, we are instrumental in the development of future Doctors and Consultants which is something we are very proud of.
We are also a research practice and our patients have the opportunity to become involved in clinical trials.
We also specialise in a number of areas such as patients with learning disabilities and dermatology.
We hope you enjoy our website and find it useful.
