Important Notice for our Patients

We are currently experiencing a high number of patients who are failing to attend for their appointment - particularly with our Nursing Staff.  Please can we remind all patients that if they cannot attend a pre-booked appointment for any reason that we appreciate a phone call to let us know.  This means we are able to re-allocate that appointment for another patient and therefore keeps our waiting times as short as possible for the benefit of all of our patients.  Thank you.

From September 2018, the Surgery would like to use SMS text messaging to help communicate with our patients regarding their appointments.  A consent form is available here - SMS Text Messaging Consent Form please complete and hand it to Reception.

Currently 46% of patients do not have a mobile number on their records... Do you have a mobile and would you like to be contacted by text?  Please inform Reception.  Thank you.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
