Budgets
Patients are quite rightly getting more and more frustrated at not getting what they want, when they want it! Please be assured that we are your advocates and we act in your best interests. But we do have to prescribe cost-effectively, and refer for medical reasons when we can't manage your problem, not simply for your peace of mind. You will not find a GP practice these days which will oblige your every wish without discussion!

Photo ID you may be asked for a photo for our records. This reduces problems where patients are mistaken for each other when they consult another GP within the practice. 

Sickness Certficates The first 7 days of sickness do not require a certificate from your GP. If your employer insists on a sickness form, complete a Self Certification form, which can be found here

 

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the 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.  Flying after ops.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required for those vaccines which 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.

Taking medicines abroad

 

Yellow Fever   vaccination and certificates are not done here. We would advise that you contact Boots Pharmacy in the Croydon Whitgift centre about this 02086886021
