TRAVEL VACCINATION CLINICS

We are now able to offer our patients travel advice.

Patients are advised to complete a travel risk assessment at least 4 weeks before your appointment so that the nurse can adequately assess your travel needs. These are available from reception or to download (above).

We also recommend you download a "Travel Well" leaflet from the link in the " Clinics and Services section of this website".

Your appointment must be booked before the assessment form will be assessed.

We also hold a price list for all of the private vaccines to download or to ask at reception. Please do bring cash or cheque to your appointment as we do not accept card payments.

The clinics will be held once a month at Milton Surgery with our Lead Nurse Sarah Birks or Lisa Jones.

We will not be able to advise imminent travellers, 4-6 weeks before travel only.

 

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
