Noticeboard

Please be aware that both the High Street Surgery and Whitfield Surgery will be unable to issue any repeat medication between MONDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER 2019 & MONDAY 14TH OCTOBER 2019. If your medication is due between these dates, please request no later than Monday 23rd September 2019.

There is currently a three month wait for heart monitor results.

It is vital that you keep the surgery up to date with your current contact details as occasions can arise when we might need to contact you urgently. Increasingly we are using text to communicate reminders and other updates to parents/carers and we need your current mobile number to do this. 

From the 1st February 2019, all sick note requests must be made by the patient themselves. A form can be completed at the surgery and will be placed through to the GP who will decide if they are able to issue this to you. It will take three days to process your request. 

The High Street and Whitfield Surgeries have a Patient Participation Group, If you wish to join please contact Sarah Jarvis on 01304 206463, She  will be happy to help you.

All our patients now have an allocated GP, if you are unsure who your GP is please feel free to contact the practice. A member of our reception team will be happy to help you.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you would need to complete out travel health questionnaire which can be found below or can be asked for at reception. Once reception have received your completed form they will book you in for a telephone consultation with a practice nurse who will go through and advise what vaccinations are required and then an appointment will be made.

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 complete the travel health questionnaire as soon as possible as most vaccinations should be administered at least 6 weeks before you travel.

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.
