Noticeboard

As part of NHS preparedness towards a no-deal EU exit we would like to make you aware that patients can access information via the following link nhs.uk around continuity of medicines supply if there is a no-deal EU exit has been updated. This update explains the government’s multi-layered approach to ensure that medicines continue to be available if there is a no-deal EU exit.

Patients are reminded that regular out of hours appointments provided by the Cumbria Health Extended Access (CHEA) service can be booked via our reception team.

We recommend you discuss your immunisations at least 8 weeks before date of travel. Our nurse can give up-to-date advice. Non – NHS travel vaccines such as Rabies, Yellow Fever etc will incur cost to patients.

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.
