The BMA, NHS England, and the National Association for Patient Participation have developed a patient leaflet which describes what patients can expect if their GP refers them to see a specialist or consultant, at a hospital or a community centre.
The leaflet also provides a helpful checklist for patients to use before they leave hospital. If you are unsure about any of the questions in the checklist, please make sure you discuss them with a member of staff before you leave hospital:
Annual protection against influenza is offered to patients aged 65 and over, and those at high risk. This includes patients suffering with chronic heart disease, asthma, COPD and diabetes.
To find out if your are eligible for Shingles immunisation, please visit the shingles awareness website.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, you need to complete the Travel Risk Assessment Form, for which you must be a registered patient. This can be collected from the admin team at reception or filled in online. The nurse will then determine what vaccinations are needed.
If you filled the form in online, we will contact you by phone to make the appointment. If you hand it into reception, we will book you an appointment there and then to secure an appointment. If the nurse then believes you don’t need any vaccinations, we will not contact you. If you are unsure, please contact the surgery.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible, ideally at least 6 weeks before you travel, as some vaccinations are a course and need to be administered over 3-6 weeks. Most vaccines take will 10-14 days to work.
Please remember that as travel advice and vaccinations are non NHS Services, we cannot prioritise these over other NHS based nursing appointments.
