NHS winter flu and covid vaccine

The adult covid and flu vaccination programmes had been due to start in October to maximise protection over the winter months, but now those most at risk including adult care home residents will be vaccinated from 11 September.

Redlands League of Friends

The League of Friends started in 1993, when a small group of patients united with the objective of supplementing the services provided to the patients of the Surgery. 

Since then, thanks to a team of dedicated fundraisers spread through Crediton and the surrounding villages, thousands of pounds have been raised and spent improving services to the our patients.  

On the following page is a list of some of the equipment/services bought by the League.  Requests for items are made to the League by the doctors and nurses at the League’s general meetings.  League members then decide whether they feel the items would directly benefit the patients.  If agreed, the League then purchase the items and the surgery pays for maintenance/consumables.  A large majority of the equipment in the consulting/treatment and waiting rooms has been purchased by the League.
