Flu is a highly infectious illness that spreads rapidly through the coughs and sneezes of people who are carrying the virus.
Anyone can get flu, but it can be more serious for certain people, such as:
- people aged 65 or over
- people who have a serious medical condition
- pregnant women
If you are in one of these groups, you're more vulnerable to the effects of flu (even if you're fit and healthy) and could develop flu complications, which are more serious illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia and could result in hospitalisation.
Please contact the practice to make an appointment for your yearly flu vaccination.
WE ARE TAKING ON NEW PATIENTS
Dr Lyon and Partners
We are located on the first floor of the Lever Chambers Centre for Health, in Bolton. All the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
We are a long established practice within Bolton with a history going back to the days before the inception of the NHS. All doctors are long-term partners in the practice allowing us to build up good relationships with our patients. We have recently become a training facility and currently take medical students from Manchester University
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.
