Message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme - The NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.  All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.  You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months. The NHS are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.  You can also attend a local walk in clinic - click on this link to see the latest clinic venues and times.  

We will be working with all of our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.  All of these appointments will be added to the National Booking System and so we encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.  In terms of any planned appointments with the doctors, nurses and other clinical staff at the surgery, there are no changes at the current time and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal 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. Please note: this is a non-NHS service, this means that there maybe a charge for certain vaccinations and any certficate that is required after a vaccination.  As this is an additional service, priority will not be made to "fit in" these appointments if our Practice Nurse Clinics are already booked up.  Please make sure that you book an appointment in advance to ensure that you have your immunisations in a timely manner before travel.

To assess whether you require vaccinations for foreign travel, you need to complete a travel vaccination form (1 per patient) and bring this to the surgery.  One of the doctors will review the form to understand what vaccines are required for that country and will check your vaccination record to determine if vaccinations are required.  Please call into the surgery for a form or you can print the form below, complete the information and hand to one of our receptionists.  

 

If vaccinations are required, it is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel.  This is to ensure that this gives enough time for the vaccines to work and in some cases, we do have to be order the vaccine, as some are not a stock vaccine.
