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
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible; at least 6 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
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.
When booking your appointment with the nurse please ensure that you have completed and handed the following travel vaccination questionnaire in to our reception at the time the appointment is booked so that the practice nurse can check what vaccinations you may require in advance of your appointment. If you are unable to print off a copy please ask one of our receptionists for one.
We are keen to give all our patients who smoke as much help as possible to stop. Please ask at reception or at any consultation for information and support.
Even the smallest effort can improve your quality of life and make you feel healthier and livelier. As walking is a very good exercise which most people are able to do, and don’t need special equipment for, then why not get started on your fitness campaign. Simply start by walking for 15 or 20 minutes at a brisk enough pace to get your heart beating faster, 3 times a week regularly. When you can easily walk for an hour you are ready to move on to swimming, cycling or running!
A healthy diet doesn’t need to be a boring one. Health experts tell us we are all eating too much fat, salt etc, but what exactly does this mean? Why not speak to your doctor/nurse or pick up some of our information leaflets so you can enjoy a healthier diet?
