ATTENDING THE SURGERY

Covid Vaccines are being delivered to Primary Care Networks across the country. The Hambleton Primary Care Network has received a delivery of the vaccine which is to be shared out amongst 8 practices.

The vaccination programme will be delivered from the Forum in Northallerton, NOT from the surgeries. Only patients aged 80 and over are currently eligible and we will be contacing these patients as and when we are able to, depending when further deliveries of the vaccine arrive.

Please do not contact the surgery, we will contact you.

Thank you for your patience

50 - 64 year flu vaccine

As you may of heard the government have announced that patients aged between 50-64 years old will be eligible for a free flu vaccination from their GP Practice as part of the flu vaccination programme.

This is a great opportunity for us to protect even more of our patients at a time where there are additional health risks associated with Covid-19 (coronarvirus).

We urge that if you fall under this eligible category to contact us for an appointment.

We urge anyone who's in a clinical risk group to take up the vaccination offer when they receive it. It will give them a much needed layer of protection and there is absolutely no evidence that getting a flu vaccine increases the risk of getting Covid-19.

We are pleased to inform our patients that we are "open for business of General Practice" again and our flu clinics have restarted. If you have not arranged an appointment please ring the surgery.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding

As an alternative to ringing 111, you can now visit www.111.nhs.uk to determine which service or treatment is most suitable for you. Due to the latest advice regarding Coronavirus we won't bring any patient into the surgery for a face to face appointment until they had a telephone consultation. All appointments will be triaged by a GP. If you have any symptoms you should self isolate https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronarvirus-covid19

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 vaccinations are no longer available on the NHS and are now chargeable and can only be obtained by private prescription. This applies to Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis, Tick Born Encephalitis, Meningitis ACWY, Malaria and Hep B

NB There will also be a £20.00 admin fee per vaccination, per patient.
