Rainham Food Bank

Unfortunately we will not be able to hold our annual Christmas raffle for St Francis Hospice this year but have instead decided to collect non perishable foods for Rainham Food Bank. We would especially like some special treats for families with children who may not be able to afford treats this year.

If you wish to donate some food please deliver to Maylands Healthcare. Rainham Food Bank will be collecting from us early in December. Thank you in advance for your support.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Flu clinic 2020 - The winter flu clinic commences on 30th September onwards. Patients eligible for the flu vaccine will be contacted shortly via text or letter and given an appointment. 

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier


Please DO NOT come to the surgery unless you have been given an appointment.
