Covid-19 Coronavirus Update

We would like to reassure all patients that we will continue to care for you in the best way possible during the Covid-19 Outbreak.  In order for us to do this we are making some changes to the way in which we can do this.  From Monday 16 March 2020 we will be moving all appointments with doctors to a telephone based system.  If you are not at risk of having contracted Covid-19 and do not have any symptoms but need to be seen face to face, the doctor you speak to will arrange an appointment for you.  If you have an appointment with a nurse, you will be called to check that you are not at risk of having contracted Covid-19 and do not have any symptoms and if that is the case, you will be able to come in to the the nurse as normal.  

The guidance issued by the Government - if you have a fever or a cough, you should self-isolate and if you are unwell, you should contact NHS111 -  remains the same.

If you do need to come into the surgery, please ensure you sanitize your hands.  If you are bringing in a prescription request, this is a really good time to review how you order repeat prescriptions to avoid coming into the practice.  You can sign up for online access (click here) or contact your local preferred pharmacy to ask them to order on your behalf.

Coronavirus - Booking appointments

We have been asked to switch off patient access to booking routine appointments on line in order that each patient can be triaged in an effort to halt the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19).  If you need to make an appointment please call the practice.  You will be asked 3 questions before the appointment is booked for you.  Please bear with us at this time as we will have an increased number of patients calling us so the phones will be even busier than normal. 

In line with national guidance, if you have symptoms and have either travelled from any of the affected areas of the world or have been in close contact with a confirmed case of Coronavirus, please do not come into the practice, call NHS111 free on 111 for more advice.  Updated guidance on Coronavirus can be found here.  

Travel Information

global air travel

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.

The practice only provides travel vaccinations that are available on the NHS.  Some vaccinations that are advised for travel have to be paid for and patients would need to attend a local private travel clinic if any of these are required.  More information about travel vaccinations can be found here.  

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

Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

 

Please note: It is recommended that this form is completed 6-8 weeks prior to travelling. This is to ensure our practice nurse has time to review the form and that a suitable appointment time can be given.  

If this is handed in with less than 6 weeks to go prior to travelling we cannot guarantee that an appointment will be given.


Travel Health Questionnaire

Travel health questionnaires must be completed at least 8 weeks before travel. Please call into the surgery for a copy of the questionnaire.


Travelling in Europe

If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
