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.Before your travel appointment you must fill in a form and return it to the surgery a week before your appointment. This will enable the Nurse to check your vaccination status and arrange to have any vaccinations you need ready for your appointment. You can download the form from this website and print it out. Please fill in the relevant information and return it to Reception.
Most test results, (including blood and urine), take between 5 to 7 working days to come back to the Practice from the hospital laboratory.
Some x-ray results take between 2 to 3 weeks to be processed.
Please telephone 01905 723441 (using option 3) between 10.00 am and 4.00pm - to check if your results are back.
The receptionist will only give you your result after the Doctor has seen it. Sometimes the Doctor will suggest that you make an appointment to be given the result or that they need to speak to you directly. The receptionist will advise you if this is necessary.
PLEASE NOTE : for reasons of confidentiality, results can only be given to the patient themselves or their legal carer.
