Building works are currently underway at the surgery. Because we are having a new reception counter fitted the main entrance is not in use. Please follow the signs to enter at the rear of the building. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please note that due to a technical error on the website previous news items have been lost.
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
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out our travel advise form and return it to the surgery before booking an appointment with out Practice Nurse Team.
Please remember we need a MINIMUM of 6 week notice before your departure date to assess your travel form, advise you of your vaccination needs and arrange appointments if appropriate. Failure to give appropriate notice will mean we are unable to offer you this service and you will need to make alternative arrangements with another Travel Clinic.
Providing travel advice and treatments are not covered under our NHS contract. Fees will be applicable for any treatment given.
Travel advice and form
You can then either: return the form to the reception, e-mail it to email@example.com or fax it to 01371 811282. This will give the nurse the information required to check the latest requirements. The nurse will then contact you to make an appropriate appointment. If you are emailing this form back to us, please do fill it in but do not change the format of the document as we are currently unable to read ".docx" documents.
