Where to get help for domestic abuse during coronavirus

 

Coronavirus Update 19th March 2020: Practice staffing has been affected by the impact of COVID-19; both self-isolation and the need to protect high risk members of staff. We will therefore only focus on urgent patient need.

 

It is important that patients work with us to protect the NHS, not just for unwell patients with COVID-19 but all other urgent conditions e.g. chronic heart conditions, cancer care.

  • DO think before ringing; We do not have the capacity to field minor queries for well patients.
  1. DO NOT use services unless absolutely necessary
  2. DO NOT request Med3s / reports / Holiday Cancellation Letters for COVID-19
  3. YOU MUST follow self-isolation/social distancing guidance
  4. DO use Electronic Prescribing Service to order NORMAL QUANTITIES of repeat medications
  5. DO be patient with all staff – everyone is doing their bit and working flat out

Your understanding at this difficult time for all of us is appreciated.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 16th March 2020: Due to the latest Government Coronavirus guidelines, from Monday 16th of March you will not be able to directly book an appointment to come in to see the doctor. Admin staff have been instructed to take details of why you feel an appointment is necessary and book a telephone call with the doctor. The doctor will then decide if you need to attend the surgery or if your problem can be dealt with over the phone. This is keep you and our staff safe.

Your understanding at this difficult time for all of us is appreciated.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 09th March 2020: Following guidance from NHS England and Public Health England - Please note that due to the Coronavirus outbreak online appointments are temporarily suspended until further notice. This is to allow practice staff to assess each patient before attending the surgery, this may mean staff ask questions when booking your appointment. We apologise for any inconvenience & thank you for your understanding at this time. Calow and Brimington Practice. 

 

 

Travel Vaccinationsglobal 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 South America
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. Click here for more information about charges.
