Flu Vaccinations 2020: Book your appointment online now or use the NHS app www.nhs.uk/nhsapp or contact reception on 01245 347539. We expect very high demand this year so please book early. Please support the surgery and book with us. 

Flu Vaccination Age 50 - 64: Flu vaccinations will be made available to a wider cohort of patients this year, but this will not be before November 2020 and only after other groups have been vaccinated. This is in line with national guidance received, and will be dependant on stocks of vaccine. 

Travel Health

Please be advised that this surgery offers a basic travel health service which includes the free NHS travel injections:

Revaxis ( diptheria/tetanus/polio) protection lasts for 10 years. Hepatitis A (which is currently unavailable), Typhoid, and Cholera. MMR may be offered to some patients.

These can only be administered when a travel risk assessment form has been fully completed at least 1 week in advance of the Nurse appointment.  These forms can be obtained from Reception, or by printing off the attached form and returning it to Reception 1 week before a travel appointment. Travel risk assessment form

Individual patients will need to book a 20 minute appointment with a Nurse, with a further 10 minutes for other family members.

Vaccines take two to three weeks to become fully effective therefore it is sensible to book a travel consultation at least 4 to 6 weeks prior to travel. The consultation will include a general travel advice leaflet and printed country specific information obtained from http://travelhealthpro.org.uk/
