PLEASE NOTE: Clinics are often very busy early in the morning with patients who require fasting blood tests or who need to attend before going to work etc. Clinics may be a little quieter later in the morning and you may not be kept waiting as long if you are available to attend later during the clinic.
In order that we know in advance of your appointment what you will require, we ask you to complete a travel questionnaire with details of where you are travelling (printable version at bottom of page)We will then contact you to arrange an appointment with the practice nurse.
It is best to see the nurse about six weeks before you travel. If you are travelling at short notice the nurses will try to help you, but if they cannot, they will recommend that you contact a travel clinic such as one of those listed below. All these charge for all services
The following travel immunisations are available on the NHS at the surgery:

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.

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
