In addition to GP consultations the practice adheres to the General Medical Services Contract for the provision of healthcare services:
If you are travelling abroad and think you may require vaccinations, initially you will need to complete a travel questionnaire form and return this to the surgery. The nurse will then contact you to let you know what vaccinations you need, and make an appointment. You can fill out the online form below, or call in at the surgery to collect a form.
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 and return to the surgery as soon as possible.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
The NHS provides most health services to people free of charge, but there are some exceptions. Prescription charges have existed since 1951. Sometimes a charge is made because the service is not covered by the NHS, for example medical reports for Insurance Companies.
What is covered by the NHS and what is not?
The Governments contract with GP's covers medical services to NHS patients. Sometimes the only reason that a GP is asked to provide information is because they hold a position of trust in the community, or because an insurance company wants to be sure that the information provided to them is true and correct.
Why does it take so long for my GP to complete a form or report?
Time spent completing forms and preparing reports takes the GP away from the care of our NHS patients. Our GP's have a heavy workload - paperwork takes up an increasing amount of time.
I only need a doctors signature - what is the problem?
When a doctor signs a certificate of report, it is a condition of the Medical Register that they only sign what they know to be true. In order to complete even the simplest of forms, the doctor might have to read a patients entire medical record.

The fee's charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
