Flu Season

We are now getting towards the end of the majority of the flu vaccinations in the practice.  Over the next few weeks the last of the at risk groups should have been in for the annual flu vaccation.  Anyone who has not yet received an appointment should phone the practice - around mid November.  NOTE - if you are housebound and normally have the district nurse visit, then they will be starting their vaccination programme shortly. 

We have over 2000 patients to vaccinate each year, so we are grateful for everyone's attendance and especially to the nurses for administering the vaccine.

Late Patients

If you are late for your appointment, the reception staff will check with the GP to see if you will still be seen, however if you are more than 10 minutes late you will have to rebook.   If you feel you must be seen, please speak to the receptionist who can update the GP.

Travel Clinic  If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please make an appointment with Nurse Anne or Lindsey for a risk assessment appointment.  They will discuss the countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required and will organise further appointments are required.    There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.  NOTE Guidance on these links give basic information only, the practice uses the Travax website as recommended by NHS Grampian.

It is important to start immunisations at least 6-8 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Please contact us with as much notice as possible.  You will be advised if a prescription is required to be collected prior to your appointment. 

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.

If you do not contact us early enough, you may have to go to a specialist travel centre to have the travel advice and immunisations carried out.    If you are also travelling to numerous countries for several months, you would be advised to go to the specialist travel clinic as we are only giving advice on short holidays or trips.

If you receive travel advice from a specialist centre, you must have all the recommended vaccinations done at that centre.
