Birthday Annual Review

From April 2014 we will be changing the way we manage patients with long term health conditions.      Patients who have conditions such as diabetes, asthma, COPD, hypothyroidism, cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure will have a single review for all their long term medical problems each year in the month of their birthday .  This will reduce the number of visits patients have to make to have their long term conditions monitored which we hope will be much more convenient.  We would encourage you to contact the practice around the time of your birthday to book a Birthday Review  appointment if this applies to you.

Transferring from the old system to a birthday review system is going to be challenging and may result in some patients being seen earlier or later than they initially expected.  The doctors would like to thank all their patients for their support whilst we are implementing these changes

 

Travel Jab Clinic

We provide comprehensive travel advice. If you are planning holidays abroad, you should check with us well before you are due to travel so that we can make sure that any necessary immunisation is competed in time. You may be denied admission to some countries if you are not fully immunised. Note: a fee is payable for certain travel immunisations – please ask the nurse for details.

For online travel advice visit http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/. There is information about specific countries and the vaccinations required on the links below

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6-8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may 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.  Please note: Due to the limited availability of travel health appointments you may be advised to seek vaccination from an alternative provider such as The Nomad Travel Health Clinic if we are unable to fit you in before your planned travel date.

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.
