This may not be very news worthy but I feel its important to give some praise where it is due. My husband and I went down to Antrim Health Centre last week to get our flu jabs at a previously arranged appointment time. It was arranged to be given by our GP outside in the car park. When we arrived in our car the GP asked us both if we were well and the usual pre-vaccination questions, then administered my husbands jab and came round to my side of the car to give me mine. It was all done with the minimum of fuss and we felt very safe from Covid 19 as we didn't have to get out of our vehicle. I must say our GP and assistant went above and beyond the call of duty as it was a freezing cold day with showers passing overhead occasionally, there wasn't even a gazebo where they could take some shelter, just the boot of a car where all the flu jabs and equipment were stored.
Of all the bad press some patients give to GPs I am happy to say:
Thank you to both the doctor and assistant from Antrim.
