Noticeboard

PLEASE, we need to emphasise the following.  We are working in a time of national crisis.  When you are asked to attend an appointment by a Doctor or Nurse, that will require face to face contact with MANY of our staff members including reception, nurses or doctors.  YOU must let us know if you have any symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 virus. These are predominantly a cough, temperature, and/or fatigue.

If you do not tell us or attempt to hide symptoms from us we are ALL at risk of becoming ill.  If a significant number of staff become ill the surgery may close . This is a remote but possible scenario.

Please, please stay away, help is available by telephone or video and most routine face to face tests or treatments can wait until your symptoms have gone away.

Stay at home and protect the NHS and other members of the public too.

You will be asked about your symptoms and for a telephone number.  A GP will then call you back in due course. Please do not attend the surgery unless you have been asked to do so by the Doctor.

Please do not to a GP, Pharmacy or hospital if you have a high temperature of 37.8 or above or a new continuous cough. 

Please go online to 111.nhs.uk/covid-19.  Patient should only call 111 if they do not have internet access.

Please use our website or online access to order repeat medication or to book appointments.  We are sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Please email any documents to letters.clayton@nhs.net

Medication / prescription or dressings requests to prescriptions.clayton@nhs.net

Travel Information

global air travel

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

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

 

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.
