CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

To access the most up-to-date information on the Coronavirus, please click the link below:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public

This site is updated daily.  Please be aware the online booking system and the 24 hour booking service to enable patients to book their own appointments has temporarily been removed. This is to minimise any risk to patients and staff in coming into contact with coronavirus.  We apologise for the inconvenience but hope all our patients will understand the rationale behind it.  Both these facilities will of course be returned to normal as soon as it is felt safe to do so.  Please bear with our reception staff who will now be asking our patients when they call if they have travelled to China, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Japan or other South Asian countries in the past 2 weeks or within 2 weeks of getting unwell.  This is to minimise any further risk of spreading.  Thank you very much for your understanding.

During this period there will be a certain amount of unavoidable disruption but we are doing our best to limit this so please bear with us.

Travel Vaccinations & Advice

We offer travel clinic appointments with our practice nurses where they give advice on the necessary precautions you may need to take before you go on your holiday or trip abroad. 

You should consult with the practice nurse at least eight weeks prior to the departure date in order for you to be given adequate advice and protection. On occasions, vaccines can be of limited supplies or be unavailable. 

Please be aware there may not be nurses’ appointments available on the week you call so allow sufficient time for an appointment to be booked.  The surgery cannot be held responsible if these guidelines are not adhered to.

If an appointment is not available, we will sign-post the traveller to an appropriate Travel Clinic. 

At the time of making your appointment you need to inform us your dates of travel, the country or countries and all areas in that country you are visiting.  You will be provided with a travel administration card detailing what travel vaccinations you have been given.  This card is for you to keep for future updates and reference to keep you safe for any further travel.  There is a £10 administration charge per traveller.

You can visit a website for information on the country or countries being visited and vaccinations required at www.Fitfortravel

The following vaccines are ONLY available from a private travel clinic:

  • Yellow Fever
  • Tick Bourne Encephalitis
  • Rabies
  • Cholera
  • Meningitis ACWY
  • Japanese Encephalitis

If you require Hep B for travel there is an overall charge of £90 (three £30 injections spread accross three appointments).
