We do not provide travel vaccinations at the surgery. If you are going away we would advise you to ask for a copy of your current immunisations which we can print for you to collect from Reception. You should then seek advice from a travel clinic.

If some of the vaccinations you require are NHS vaccinations, for example Diphtheria, Polio and Tetanus, Hepatitis A, Typhoid or Cholera you may be able to have these at the surgery. Please note however that if you have booked a last minute holiday or are travelling within the next 4 weeks, it may be difficult for us to accommodate you without it negatively impacting the service we provide to our registered population and you may therefore have to have these immunisations at the Travel Clinic which you will have to pay for.

Please look at our Travel Vaccinations Info link below or go to NHS Choices website (www.nhs.uk) for more information.

168 Medical Group Message

Like many practices across the country, the impact of COVID has led to unparalleled levels of demand for 168 Medical Group. We are doing all we can to ensure those with medically urgent conditions are seen on the day. To support us to help those who need it most, if you are in the early stages of an illness or have a short term minor condition, please use the self-help guides on Ask My GP or the NHS website to self-care. When you contact us, we will ask you what you’ve done to self care. With self-care, many minor illnesses can resolve without needing medical treatment from a GP.

If you still need medical help, please note that our telephone team may refer you to our physiotherapist, mental health nurse or pharmacist if your condition is suitable to be treated by one of our extended healthcare team.

Please remember that our team are here to help you. They are doing a difficult job in challenging times. Please treat them with the same level of respect as you’d expect in return.
