Patient participation group - all welcome
We hold our meetings the last tuesday of every month, if you would like to get involved in the running of your surgery please come along. We value your views and idea's.
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.
Vaccinations and Immunisations
The practice offers a one-to-one healthy eating weight management service with the HCA, nurses, or Community Health Trainer.
