Please note that, if you are aged between 50 and 64 and not in a clinical at risk group, the earliest you will be offered a flu vaccination is November, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for people in this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. If you are aged 50 to 64 and are in a clinical ‘at risk’ group 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. 



NHS 111

NHS 111

NHS 111 aims to make it easier for people to access urgent local healthcare services when they need medical health fast but it is NOT a 999 emergency.  It provides one, easy to remember and free to call number.

From 5 March 2013 there will only be three numbers people in Kent & Medway need to contact the NHS for urgent care.

  • 999 for life threatening emergencies
  • their GP telephone number
  • NHS 111

South East Health and Meddoc will no longer provide an out of hours telephone service.  For out of ours GP services patients will need to call NHS 111 and not their usual out of hours telephone number.  NHS Direct will also cease to offer a telephone service as will the PCT dental helplines.  NHS 111 will replace these services.
