Are you planning a holiday abroad this year? Do you need travel vaccinations?

If yes, please complete a travel form at reception. The doctor will then check what is recommended and write you a prescription. This can take up to 48 hours.

Please be aware that for travel vaccinations to be effective you need to have them at least 2 weeks before departure.

Please speak to a pharmacist about malaria treatment.

Children’s services do not automatically send out appointments for children when they turn 1 or 3 years and 4 months which is when vaccinations are again due.

If you are not sure if they have had their vaccination please ask at reception.

Appointments can be booked with the nurse at any time to ensure they are vaccinated and therefore covered against childhood disease.

If you are registered as a patient of this practice, you can also get an appointment with a GP or prescribing nurse at one of our healthcare hubs, including during evenings, weekends and bank holidays:

  • Westcotes Health Centre (8am to 8pm, 7 days a week)
  • Belgrave Health Centre (Mon – Fri 6:30pm to 10pm, weekends and bank holidays 12pm to 8pm)
  • Saffron Health ((Mon – Fri 6:30pm to 10pm, weekends and bank holidays 12pm to 8pm)

If we have been unable to offer you an appointment and you need to see someone quickly, ask our reception staff about an appointment at a healthcare hub instead. You can also book the appointment yourself by calling 0116 366 0560 or NHS 111.

Appointments can be booked for the same day or up to 48 hours in advance.
