Annual Seasonal Flu Vaccination
Free to everyone who is aged 65 and over by 31st March 2018; patients under 65 who have a chronic disease (such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease); ladies who are pregnant; carers; patients who have had their spleen removed or are immunocompromised.
The seasonal flu jab gives you very good protection against flu. You should seriously consider having the flu jab because:
- You are considered to be at risk of getting very ill if you catch flu. Only people at risk of serious illness from flu are offered the free jab.
- Many people who end up in hospital with flu could have been protected by having the flu jab.
- If you have the jab you will also help protect family members who may not be eligible for the flu vaccine (such as husbands, wives, children/grandchildren)

The 100,000 Genomes Project
The 100,000 Genomes Project will sequence 100,000 genomes from around 70,000 people. Participants are NHS patients with a rare disease, plus their families, and patients with cancer.
The aim is to create a new genomic medicine service for the NHS – transforming the way people are cared for. Patients may be offered a diagnosis where there wasn’t one before. In time, there is the potential of new and more effective treatments.
The project will also enable new medical research. Combining genomic sequence data with medical records is a ground-breaking resource. Researchers will study how best to use genomics in healthcare and how best to interpret the data to help patients. The causes, diagnosis and treatment of disease will also be investigated. This is currently the largest national sequencing project of its kind in the world.
