SHORT STAFFED IN DISPENSARY

Due to sickness and staff holidays we are very short staffed in our Dispensary and may have to close the dispensary for collection of prescriptions at short notice, just for a few hours during the day.  You will still be able to contact the Dispensary either by telephone or email.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

FLU VACCINATIONS:     Flu vaccination appointments are now being booked for over 65's.  Please contact the surgery to arrange your appointment.

Overdue for an Asthma, COPD or Diabetic annual check?  Please call reception to book your telephone appointment 

Travel Immunisations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to complete a Travel Health Questionnaire (link at bottom of this page or available from reception) at least 12 weeks before travel.  An appointment with the practice nurse will be needed 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 & RussiaNorth America North America
Central America Central Americaindia South America
egypt Carribeanlithuania Africa
bulgaria Middle Eastpoland Central Asia
china East Asiachina Australasia and Pacific

 

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 12 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.


Travel Health Questionnaire

The Travel Health Questionnaire must be completed at least 12 weeks before travel.  If you departure date is less than 12 weeks we will not be able to complete the assessment and you will need to attend a Private Travel Clinic (details are available from reception).

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
