This time of year is very busy with flu vaccination programme as well as the year round demand on our nursing team. Due to staff shortages it was agreed at a practice meeting on 10th October that we will stop offering this service for the month of OCtober and will review ready for November.
Alternatives are available at the Travel Clinics in the area - but there will be a charge.
Sorry for the inconvenience but we need to make sure we can look after our patients through the winter.
Parents/Guardians of children will receive notification when immunisations are due. When invited please make an appointment with a nurse to have your child vaccinated.
The links below are three short animations on You Tube describing how vaccinations work, how they provide herd immunity and how they don?t overload the immune system.

Family Planning Services
We are able to provide confidential and comprehensive advice on all forms of contraception. Routine checks and cervical smears are carried out by the nursing team. Coil/Implant fittings and removals are by arrangement only with the doctor and/or nurse.
Please telephone the surgery and speak to the nurses for emergency contraceptive advice.
Healthy Lifestyle Management and Advice Including:
Minor Surgery - Dr C S Arnold
Some minor surgery procedures may be undertaken at the surgery. Please make an appointment to discuss this with the doctor or nurse.
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:
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
The NHS does not pay for some of the services we provide. These include private sick notes, insurance forms, holiday cancellation forms, medical reports, fitness to travel certificates, medicals, private prescriptions, and some vaccination services. A list of the prices for these services, which are in line with BMA approved national guidelines, is displayed at reception copies are available.
Occasionally it may be necessary to submit the form for a quote so that the fee can be agreed by the Doctor.
You will need to hand your form or request in at reception, it will then be passed to our admin team who will liaise with the Doctor to get it completed.
As of the 1st October 2015 we will kindly be asking that all payments for private work be made at the time we receive the request. The work will only be completed once payment is made in full. See pricelist of work deemed private at reception or view below.
Scale of Private and Non NHS fees
All appointments for medicals such as Taxi/HGV/PSV will require a £50 non-refundable deposit at the time of booking with the outstanding payment due at the appointment.
We can take payments by cash or cheque.
Please be aware that we have to prioritise our NHS work, we do not have the resources to action private requests urgently and these can take up to 2 weeks and occasionally longer if the doctor is on leave.
Thank you for your co-operation in this matter
