By appointment with the Practice Nurse. There is a form to fill in prior to your appointment which is available from reception or download below in our Travel Vaccinations section.
Please note that this form must be completed and returned to the Practice 8 weeks prior to the date of outbound travel to ensure we can provide the appropriate advice, order vaccines and arrange appointments.
If you are travelling in less than 8 weeks time you will need to attend a private travel clinic.
Please note: you must be a registered patient at our Practice to receive travel advice from us.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the travel health questionnaire form (below) and hand in at reception. We will then look at which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting, your previous vaccination history and current medical condition to determine what vaccinations are required. You will be then beoffered an appointment/s for the vaccines you require.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to provide your information as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as you may need more than one appointment 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.
If 8 weeks notice is not provided you will be directed to a private travel clinic.

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
Your employer can ask you to confirm that you've been ill.You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. This is called self-certification.
If you're sick and off work for more than seven days, your employer will probably ask for proof of your illness. Most employers ask for a fit note from your GP.
However, this will also depend on your employer's company policy on sick leave (or sickness absence). This policy should tell you how many days you can be off sick before you need to provide proof of illness or a fit note.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
For more information see the DirectGov website (where this information was sourced)
It should be noted that GPs do not provide sick notes for schoolchildren. When children are absent from school owing to illness, schools may request a letter from a parent or guardian, and this is no different during an exam period. However, children who have missed exams due to illness are frequently told by schools that a note from a doctor is required; but this cannot be provided by a GP. Aside from the fact that parents/guardians are responsible for excusing their children from school, GPs cannot provide retrospective sickness certification. When a child suffers from a long-term condition, any certification will be provided by the responsible specialist.
