If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to fill in the Travel Health Questionnaire (link below), once this is filled in you will then need to call the surgery to book in for a telephone consultation with one of our Practice Nurses. Please allow at least 8 weeks prior to travelling. This allows the nurse to plan an immunisation schedule. If a second appointment is required the Practice Nurse will book you into a travel clinic.
This service provided by our nursing team includes any travel advice, immunisations and Malaria prophylaxis.
The following vaccinations are available free to charge to patients under the NHS:
The following vaccinations are not covered by the NHS and a charge will be required, which must be paid prior to your second appointment as the practice will need to purchase them in advance:

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).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
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.
