Thursday evening appointments now available at GP practices
In addition to general medical consultations we are pleased to be able to provide specialist clinics and services covering the following areas:
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 the online form before coming to see the nurse.
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 fall outside the scope of the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
Enhanced Data Sharing
"Are you happy for your record here to be shared with other services involved in your care?"
" Are you happy for your doctor to have access to your records held at other services involved in your care"
All patients will need to consent or dissent. . You can leave a message on our website or pick up a form in the Surgery.
Heath & Social Care Information Centre
How information about you helps us to provide better care
Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by health care staff to support your treatment and care.
It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link informtion from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.
Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identtiy can then be used by others, such as researches and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.
How your informaiton is used and shared is controlled by law and strict rules are in place to protect your privacy.
We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
Enter all or part of your postcode in the box below and click one of the buttons
to find those services that are local to you.
