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.

Care.data is a programme of work led by NHS England and the Health and Social Care Information Centre which will bring together securely, health and social care information from different settings in order to see what’s working really well in the NHS – and what we could be doing better. Using data in this way is known as data sharing for purposes beyond direct care, and the information will only be shared if it will benefit patient care.

You only require a sick note if you have been off for more than 7 days. For the first 7 days of illness, you are required to complete a self certification form. GPs are not allowed to issue medical certificates for the first 7 days of an illness.
If your employer insists on a medical certificate for the first 7 days, a private sick note can be issued by the GP. Please note a charge will be made for this.
If you do not qualify for statutory sick pay or statutory sick pay runs out and you are still unwell, you should ask your employer to complete form SSP1 and send it to the local JobCentre Plus to claim for Incapacity Benefit.
We are a training practice and have GP registrars working at the practice. GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors experienced in hospital medicine who join us for 6 to 12 months to gain experience in general practice. We also undertake the training of medical students, student nurses and health visitors.
