SICK NOTE INFORMATION FROM 20th MARCH 2020

Those who have COVID-19 (Corona Virus) or advised to self-isolate will be able to obtain an isolation note by visiting NHS 111 online and completing an online form rather than contacting a GP.  For COVID 19 cases this replaces the usual need to provide a "fit note" after seven days of sickness absence.  Isolation notes will also be accepted by Jobcentre Plus as evidence of your inability to attend.

 

This will help during the Cornavirus outbreak as it cuts down visiting the surgery.

 

 

 

 

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

We have travel packs available on reception to fill in, it is extremely important to complete this as early as possible  - at least eight weeks before you travel. This is because an appointment may be required with the practice nurse to receive the vaccinations.  These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. The nurse will have a look through your travel pack and assess whether you need to be seen for any vaccinations. She will then contact reception and ask them to book an appointment for you. Your 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.

As of the 1st of April 2017 the Dorset CCG have reviewed the provision of vaccinations that are available for travel and as a result we are no longer able to offer Hepatitis B in any form (including A/B combined).  Any person needing this vaccination will be directed to a private travel clinic.
