Urgent News about blood tests - 27.08.21


There is a national shortage of blood bottles which is expected to last until at least 17th September 2021. We have been advised by the NHS to postpone all non-urgent blood tests. We will advise you if we feel that you urgently require a blood test and advise you when the situation changes. This situation is out of our control; thank you for your patience.

If there is no seating left, please consider waiting outside until one becomes available.  Hand Sanitiser - this will continue to be provided. Please use when entering the building and when leaving.  Your help with keeping us safe is appreciated. Many thanks.

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. 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

 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

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.
