In House Pharmacy 

We are pleased to announce that we have been granted planning permission to add an In-house Pharmacy at Davenport House.  Springfield Pharmacy will be relocating from its current premises on the High Street to Davenport House once renovation work is complete.  The pharmacy will be located in the downstairs rooms on the left as you enter the Surgery, with the current meeting room moving upstairs.  The pharmacy will have its own entrance from the front of the Surgery and also access from inside.  It is hoped that this new service when established will be of great benefit to our patients.

Measles Warning

A number of children have been diagnosed with measles in the Caddington area since 20 March 2019.

What is measles?

Measles is a highly infectious disease which spreads very easily. People with measles can get a cough, runny nose, rash, sore red watery eyes and fever. Complications of measles can be serious and include ear and chest infections, fits, diarrhoea and brain infection. Measles can also present more risk for people whose immune system is not working normally and pregnant women.

The best way to prevent measles in through vaccination. Most older children and adults are immune to measles - either because they had measles as a child or because they have been vaccinated - and so are very unlikely to catch measles.

If you are unsure if your child is protected from measles, check with your doctor. Your child is at greatest risk if they have not been immunised with 2 doses of MMR vaccine. If they have missed one or both of their doses of MMR vaccine contact your GP Surgery to arrange an appointment.

If your child becomes unwell and think it could be measles you should see a doctor. However, you should ring the doctor or clinic beforehand, so they can make sure you do not pass the disease to others in the waiting room.
