They are not usually harmful.  There is no need to treat warts if they are not causing you any problems. Without treatment, about 3 in 10 warts have gone within 10 weeks, and most warts will have gone within 1-2 years, and leave no scar.   Clinicians at Bottisham Medical Practice do not usually treat verrucas but are happy to provide advice if required.  Alternatively, please see: http://www.patient.co.uk/health/warts-and-verrucas for further information.

Book your flu jab today – it’s free because you need it!

Patients in at risk groups are being reminded to get their free flu jab.  Adults over 65; those with long term health conditions; children aged two to eleven; carers and pregnant women may all be eligible.

Flu is a highly contagious illness that spreads rapidly through the population. Although it’s not possible to know which strains of flu will circulate each winter, the flu vaccination is still the best protection against an unpredictable virus which can cause severe illness and deaths amongst vulnerable groups.

If you are eligible for the flu vaccine, get it now – it’s free because you need it. 

Please contact reception to book yours or visit www.nhs.uk/fluvaccine for more information.
