New Patient Examinations.
All new patients are required to have a basic health assessment by our nurse or Healthcare Assistant
The practice no longer provides Yellow Fever vaccination. You may wish to approach the National Advice Centre website www.nathnac.org who can give advice on Yellow Fever and where you might obtain vaccinations.
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 - 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.

Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you have your test you will be told approximately how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. Please ring the practice to see if your results are back. AIthough we will endeavour to contact you if an urgent problem is detected, it is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so. We process far too many tests each day to be able to contact everyone about their individual result.
