Flu Vaccines

Our flu clinics are appointment only this year, please call to arrange an appointment or for more information.

Repeat Prescriptions

We are no longer taking repeat prescription requests on our main surgery telephone number. This is to reduce the volume of calls to make it easier for patients phoning for appointments, advice or in urgent need of help to get through.

Repeat prescriptions can be requested online via our website, by handing in your repeat prescription slip at the surgery or by using the repeat prescription hotline on 771886.

Travel Information

global 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 note there will be a charge for this service.

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

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific
 

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.
