Fond Farewell to Dr. Giblin


Glemsford Surgery is very sad to share that Dr. Mary Giblin is leaving us for pastures new.  Dr. Giblin will be very sadly missed and we know that our patients, friends, and carers will join us to wish her all the best in the future.  Dr. Giblin has been a Partner at Glemsford Surgery since 1999 and has worked tirelessly to provide excellent care over the years.  We thank her for her years of service to Glemsford and our neighbouring villages and wish her all the best for the future!



In line with national guidance, antibody testing (to see if you have had Coronavirus) will be rolled out in Suffolk and North East Essex in a safe and phased way.  It has begun with NHS hospital staff.  We will keep you updated as to when this test is available to different staff and patient groups.  Meanwhile, please may we request that you DO NOT ASK YOUR GP about availability.  This will help us to help you with all other urgent calls.  We will make an announcement as soon as we can.



IMPORTANT ADVICE FOR OUR PATIENTS AND CARERS


CORONAVIRUS (COVID_19)


Updated 19th March 2020 - for more information please click on the link below to visit our dedicated "Coronavirus Advice" page by clicking on the tab "Coronavirus"


The Public are advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have:


A new continuous cough OR


High temperature of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher



To reduce your chances of catching COVID-19


and reduce pressure on your local GP practice


during this busy time, appointments will be


carried out over the phone unless there is a


clinical need for you to come into the practice.




This will help minimise risk while continuing


to ensure people get the care and advice they


need.



ONLINE APPOINTMENT BOOKING


Please DO NOT book a GP appointment using the ONLINE SERVICES if you suspect you have contracted Coronavirus.  Please call NHS 111 instead.



Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact

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.
