Noticeboard

Dr Protheroe

Dr Protheroe will be leaving the practice at the end of August.  It is with much sadness that we wish her goodbye.  She has been a fantastic part of the team for the last 13 years and we wish her all the very best in her future career.

If Dr Protheroe is your named GP the other doctors at the practice will take responsibility for your care in her absence.

Travel Vaccinations

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. 

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible -ideally 6 weeks before you travel but definitely no later than 4 weeks  before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.   Failure to give 4 weeks notice will result in you having to attend a private vaccination clinic 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.
