From September to January the practice runs flu vaccination clinics for all patients aged over 65 and under 65’s at risk.
Near Patient Testing
The practice provides near patient testing for patients requiring monitoring of long term medication for rheumatology.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel risk assessment form and hand it in at the surgery, or complete and submit the online form below. Following receipt of the form we will contact you to arrange an appointment with the practice nurse.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to return your form as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. This will give the nurse the opportunity to review your form and decide what vaccinations are required. These then need to be ordered as some are not a stock vaccine. Please be aware we cannot guarentee you an appointment if you contact us less than a month before you travel.
Please note 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 the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
