Dear Patients

Our Quick Access Clinic is one of the busiest clinics in the Practice and we are very proud to offer this exceptional access for our patients.

In recent months the clinic has been extremely busy and we have been forced to call Doctors in from their annual leave to try and help us manage the numbers of patients and we are pleased to say we have never turned a patient away. However this is not sustainable, and for the safety of patients and our staff we are implementing a policy to ‘cap’ the number of patients attending the clinic if numbers become unmanageable.

Please be aware we do not take this decision lightly and will only put these measures in place if completely necessary.

If this happens patients will be

  • Informed by Reception as soon as possible
  • Asked if your problem can wait till the next day, in which case they will be asked to come to next day Quick Access.
  • If not, then a message will be taken and this will be reviewed by a Doctor within 3 hours and triaged to be seen later that day.
  • If your problem is more urgent you may be asked to attend a clinic at another location.

We very much appreciate your support in this matter

Kind regards

 

Amanda Meehan

Practice Manager

Travel Immunisations

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.

Europe Europe & RussiaNorth America North America
Central America Central Americaindia South America
egypt Carribeanlithuania Africa
bulgaria Middle Eastpoland Central Asia
china East Asiachina Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 8-12 weeks before you travel - as a further appointment s may be required with the practice nurse to complete the vaccinations. Appointments cannot be made unless we have received a completed Travel Questionnaire ( see link below). 

Some 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 chargePlease ask Reception for charges This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.


Travel Health Questionnaire

Some of the vaccines we offer are not available on the NHS. We have put together this list to help you. If you would like to book an appointment with the nurse for travel, this is a free consultation and we will only charge for the vaccines we give you.

Please note you will need a consultation with the nurse before any vaccines are given. Please allow 15 minutes for a consultation.

We will ask you to pay after you have had your consultation. Please note we only take cash. Sorry for any inconvenience.
