PARKING

It is with regret that patients will no longer be able to park on Elgar House car park. We have had to make this difficult decision as there have been instances where doctors have not been able to exit the car park in emergencies putting patient's health at risk, There has also been damage to staff cars and sadly staff have received verbal abuse.

Parking Eye, a member of the British Parking Association will be issuing fines for unauthorised vehicles parked.

THIS WILL ALSO APPLY WHEN THE SURGERY IS CLOSED, i.e. AT THE WEEKEND AND BANK HOLIDAYS. 

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

 

Our nurses offer a full advisory service for those travelling abroad.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to make an appt with the practice nurse. In addition you will need to complete a travel questionnaire (see below) and return this to the surgery 7 working days before your appt.  This questionnaire will need to include which countries and areas within countries you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. Unfortunately if we do not have this information one week prior to your appt you may need to rebook.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the link below

www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home 

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 vaccination form to be handed into reception 7 working days prior to Nurse appt.
