Preventative medicine plays an important part in our work. There is an automatic cervical smear recall programme for 'at risk' patients.
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
Travel questionnaires are available for collection from Reception at the Surgery and should be completed and returned prior to arranging the initial appointment. This will help us offer the appropriate advice before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
In addition to the usual items which fall under NHS care, the doctors provide other services for which a charge is made. These include medicals for insurance companies, employment, sport, driving, HGV, taxi and elderly drivers. These usually take up to 30 minutes and should be booked at reception.
Also included in this category are completion of forms for insurance claims, passports, holiday cancellation etc for which we must also make a charge.
