Noticeboard

New GP

We would like to welcome Dr Rukshana Steven to the practice.  She joined the team on 1st December 2016 as a GP Partner.

Flu Vaccinations

Flu vaccinations are still available to all patients over the age of 65, patients under 65 with a chronic condition such as heart problems, respiratory problems, kidney disease.  All 2-5 year olds are also entitled to the flu vaccination free of charge.  If your child missed the vaccination at school then the practice is able to offer a 'catch-up' programme.  Please contact your surgery to make an appointment with the practice nurse for this.

Minor Illness

This is the time of year when coughs, colds and sore throats are very common.  If you have a minor illness such as this please see the section on the right-hand side of the website for some advice on how to treat this at home.  Usually a mild viral illness will improve without treatment in about a week.  If your symptoms do not improve within a few days or worsen then your local pharmacist can help or you can phone the GP for some advice.

We now offer appointments out of core hours.  These are on a Tuesday evening or a Saturday morning.  Please see the extended hours page for more details. 

Out of Hours
For medical attention outside of normal working hours, please telephone NHS 24 on 111. "Out of hours" is between the hours of 5.30pm - 8.00am Monday to Thursday and all weekend from 5.30pm on Friday to 8.00am on Monday morning.

Cancelling your Appointment
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone.

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

Telephone Advice
You may phone at any time to request to or speak to a doctor. You will be asked by the receptionist to give brief details. These will then be passed on to the doctor who will phone back if appropriate.

Travel Information

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

EuropeEurope & RussiaNorth AmericaNorth America

chinaEast AsiachinaAustralasia 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.
