APPOINTMENTS 

IT IS POSSIBLE THAT YOUR PROBLEM COULD BE DEALT WITH BY TALKING TO THE DOCTOR OR A TRIAGE NURSE ON THE TELEPHONE SO PLEASE MENTION THIS WHEN YOU SPEAK TO THE RECEPTIONIST.   PLEASE HELP BY DISCUSSING YOUR PROBLEM WITH THEM.

IF YOU ARE CALLING BECAUSE OF BACK OR JOINT PAIN PLEASE LET THE RECEPTIONIST KNOW. THE DUTY DOCTOR WILL CALL YOU BACK TO DISCUSS YOUR SYMPTOMS AND DECIDE IF AN INITIAL ASSESSMENT WITH THE PHYSIOTHERAPIST IS THE BEST COURSE OF ACTION.  THANK YOU.THE DOCTORS

WHY DOES THE RECEPTIONIST NEED TO ASK WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?

Travel Vaccinations

If you're planning to travel outside the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some of the serious diseases found in other parts of the world.

Vaccinations are available to protect you against many travel-related infections, such as yellow fever, typhoid and hepatitis A.

In the UK, the childhood vaccination programme protects you against a number of diseases such as tetanus, but it does not cover most of the infectious diseases that are found overseas.

You can find out which vaccinations are necessary or recommended for the areas you will be visiting on these two websites:

Some countries require you to have an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) before you enter. For example, Saudi Arabia requires proof of vaccination against certain types of meningitis for visitors arriving for the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages.

Many tropical countries in Africa and South America will not accept travellers from an area where there is yellow fever unless they can prove that they have been vaccinated against it.

Read more about the vaccines available for travellers abroad.

Getting vaccinated

You don't always need vaccinations to travel abroad. If you do, the type of travel jabs you need depends on which country you're visiting and what you're doing.

Please call us to arrange any travel vaccines. In the main these are not free on the NHS and a charge will be incurred.
