APRIL 2019. 

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Kai Brownhill as Practice Care Co-ordinator. This follows a long search for the right person and he will be in post formally from 1/5/19 following a 2 week induction. This is a new post for the Practice so will evolve over time. He will be mainly responsible for our frail and vulnerable patients including Nursing and Residential residents.

Also a warm welcome to Julie Read who has re-located from Norfolk and will be working in the Dispensary as a dispensing assistant but is currently training to be a dispenser.

 

 

PLEASE help us to help you;

Please be aware that if you are 10 minutes late then you will be asked to re-book or sit and wait so that patients that arrive on time can be seen.

Please be aware that if you do not attend appointments on multiple occasions then you will first receive a letter and then asked to re-register at an alternative practice.

Please be aware that any prescription advice given from a hospital appointment can take 7 days to process but you may also be asked to be seen if the clinician needs to discuss further.

Please be aware that this Practice has not yet signed up to the Electronic Prescription Service so cannot process requests from online pharmacies.

 

Please note the next Practice Training afternoon is on 2/5/19 [Thursday afternoon].

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to fill in a travel form and 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 may be required with the practice nurse to receive some vaccinations if 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 vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.
