Citzens AdviceHow can they help you? ...follow the link ----> CAB information
We now offer telephone triage. Triage just means deciding what, if any, treatment you need and which clinician you need to be seen by to get this treatment. Offering telephone triage means that you will be able to speak to a clinician on the same day and either your problem dealt with over the phone, if appropriate, or an appointment offered if the clinician feels you need to be seen. We hope this will work well and help improve access to appointments.
PrescriptionsYou are only able to order your prescription over the phone between 2pm - 5pm. You can however order online or by calling into the surgery at any time. Please allow 2 working days before collection and make allowances for weekends and public holidays.
We are able to provide a full range of contraceptive care and an opportunity for well women screening.

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
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.
