NHS APP

Get the NHS App

We have decided to use the NHS App instead of Patient Access for online access in future, although we’ll still respond to Patient Access requests.  The NHS App has a number of advantages for you and us, which we have described on the Online Services page of the surgery website where there are also instructions on how to upload the NHS app and register with it.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

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.

Please contact the surgery as soon as you know your travel arrangements. You will be requested to complete a short travel questionnaire which should be returned to us to allow the nurse to review your trip and make recommendations.

Once your questionnaire has been returned please allow 7-10 days for the nurse to review the details and then contact the surgery after 2pm where a member of our reception team will liaise the recommendations and make appropriate appointments for you. 

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.
