Noticeboard

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING - Friday 29th September - and Flu Morning on Sat 7th October.  A huge thanks to all who attended and helped - we have raised over £400 so far and money is still coming in.  

If you have not had your flu jab yet - please make an appointment - having the vaccine here provides vital income to the practice - if we don't get this income - we may lose some services.

New Prescription Line

Due to the increased number of prescriptions we are trialling a 24 hour repeat prescription line.   

This can be accessed the same way as before - dial the normal practice number and Option 2 for prescriptions.   You will automatically be transferred to the answer machine.   Please leave a message stating your name, date of birth, address and telephone number followed by the medication you require.    Please speak clearly and spell anything unusual.   If we cannot hear the message we cannot generate your prescription !

Use of Arboretum Premises 

We are now able to use some of the rooms at the Arboretum Practice - which is only across the road from us.    Please check which building your appointment is in.  

GREAT NEWS -     We have received our CQC report after the Inspection on 31st May and have been graded as GOOD

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel form prior to  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.


Travel Health Questionnaire

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