New Telephone System

On Tuesday 10th May we adopted a new telephone system. We would like to thank patients for their patience during this transition period.
All incoming and outgoing calls will be recorded for monitoring and training purposes. 

COVID-19 Vaccinations

We ware currently vaccinating patients aged 75 and above and those who are immunocompromised as part of the governments spring booster campaign.  If you fall in either of these groups and it is 6 months since last vaccination and haven't been contacted yet but would like the booster please call the surgery.

Travel Information

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

EuropeEurope & RussiaNorth AmericaNorth America
Central AmericaCentral AmericaindiaSouth America
egyptCarribeanlithuaniaAfrica
bulgariaMiddle EastpolandCentral Asia
chinaEast AsiachinaAustralasia 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 may 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.

Travel Health Questionnaire

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out and send the online form before coming to see the nurse, and bring a completed, printed copy when you attend for your appointment
