Important News Covid-19 Virus

Derby Road site will be operating as an isolation site  from Monday 23rd March. The site will be manned by a full team of staff working via telephone and  e mail. We are also hoping to start using video consultations as well. All patients who need to be seen will be seen at  the Pinewood site where infection control protocols will be followed to prevent the spread of infection including the use of personal protective equipment such as masks, aprons, gloves and goggles. In the possible event that staff are forced to self isolate and / or become unwell , we will re -deploy staff from the Derby Road site as and when required. We hope in this way to preserve a resilient workforce for as long as possible. Any patient attending the Pinewood site will be given instructions to wait in the car park until asked to come into the surgery. ALL patient requests for appointments will continue to be assessed and prioritized by telephone and by e mail.  It is clear to us that many routine procedures and treatments will be delayed as we attempt to meet the needs of our most vulnerable and ill patients. We apologize sincerely for this and ask for the understanding of our patients.

For more details on specifics, please see the newsletter below.

Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Please follow the link below for up to date advice from NHS England

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse for this.  Depending on which country you are visiting, determine what vaccinations are required.

To find out this information please visit travelhealthpro.org.uk or if you are travelling to multiple destinations then please visit the payable site www.masta-travel-health.com

There is further information available about different countries and the vaccinations required via the links below. Please bring this information with you to your appointment.

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 the vaccines take time to work and for some vaccinations we will need to order them separately, which will mean a second appointment is needed.

Some travel vaccines have to be ordered as 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.
