Noticeboard

“EPS4 goes live at Penny’s Hill Practice on 10th March 2020. If your prescriptions are already sent electronically to a nominated pharmacy then there is minimal change. If you do not have a nominated pharmacy, your prescription will be sent electronically to the NHS Spine and a pharmacy of your choice will then retrieve your prescription when you go to collect this by advising them of your NHS number. If you do not know your NHS number, ask your doctor when they are issuing you your prescription. Prescription tokens are also sometimes generated, however you can still get your prescription without these. If you do not currently have a nominated pharmacy but would like to nominate one, please speak to reception.”

Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you firstly need to complete a travel questionnaire, these are available online below or direct from the surgery.

It is important to submit a travel form - at least 8 weeks before travelling, as an appointment with the practice nurse may be necessary to have any vaccinations required. We require one form per person with all specific destinations clearly stated

Some travel vaccines are not available on the NHS and incur a charge:-

Travel Vaccine

Vaccine 
  
Hepatitis A 
 Combined Hepatitis A & B 
 Typhoid 
 Combined Hepatitis A & Typhoid 
 
Tentanus, Diptheria & Polio as given in the   combined TD/PV vaccine
 Cholera 
 

The nurse will look at the travel form and we will contact you by phone to advise which vaccinations, if any, are required. Your appointment will need to be at least 7-10 days before you travel for the vaccines to take effect.

Rabies

There is very limited supply of licensed vaccine nationwide. We may ask you to go to a travel clinic if we are unable to obtain the vaccine ourselves.
