As highlighted in the media, GP practices are experiencing a high demand on their services resulting is difficulties in getting through on the phone lines.

 

We would like to reassure you we have been working throughout the COVID crisis and continue to review processes to improve our services.

 

The increase in calls is unprecedented and we apologise to those who have had problems getting through.

 

We are currently working with our phone system provider to see if we can improve the system to meet the needs of our patients.

 

We have also created capacity through eConsult and encourage our patients to use this through the practice website as an alternate method to contact us.  This will enable us to respond to patients in a timely manner and should also enable the phone lines to become more free.

 

We understand your frustration but again would like to reassure you that we have continued to work through the Pandemic, but in a different way, requiring triage prior to appointment, to keep patients and staff safe.  We are undertaking  regular reviews to improve and adopt our services to the ongoing changes.

Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

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

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
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.
