Noticeboard

Keep Your Details up to Date
Please do update your contact details (box at the bottom of screen) with home and mobile. You will receive appointment reminders and occasional requests for information by text.

 

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. PHONE CALLS may be recorded for your protection.

 

Sickness Certificates

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 for foreign travel you will need to make an appointment with one of our Nurses to discuss what you may need. This cannot be done over the phone as the Nurse will need this appointment time to look up your vaccination history and the any current issues in the country you’re visiting. 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 usually kept in stock. If needed, your second appointment will 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.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Yellow fever vaccination and certificates are not done here. We would advise that you contact your local pharmacy or travel clinic.

Don't forget Travel Insurance (in Europe the free European Health Insurance card will not fully cover you)

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links at the bottom of the page.

Flying after an operation? Make sure you check with your GP or Surgeon any precautions you may need to take and have a look at these guidelines for an idea.

Have you checked if there are medication restrictions in the country you’re travelling to, or if you might need a letter to support having medication on board in cases like allergies or insulin? Have a look at the NHS guide and ensure you check with your airline if you aren’t sure.
