FLU VACCINES NOW AVAILABLE WITHIN PRACTICE - VIST OUR NEWS PAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION
In addition to general consultations we are pleased to offer the following services:
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.

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:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
If a GP or another member of our health care team believes you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, they will refer you on to the appropriate specialist.
All referrals, except re-referrals, are sent through the Referral Assessment Service(RAS). The RAS team will contact you once they have received the referral to offer you the opportunity to select a Hospital of your choice for treatment. You will also be able to book your appointment at this time, if one is available; if there are no appointments available then you will be put onto that Hospital's waiting list and will be contacted directly by them in due course.
Your GP should give you a form explaining where your referral has gone and giving details of any action you need to take.
It is important that we have up to date contact details for you in order for this to happen. Could you please check that we have your home and mobile telephone numbers where applicable as well as your current address at the time of referral.
