New Minor Illness Clinic

If you call requesting an urgent appointment on the day the receptionist may offer you an appointment in our Minor Illness Express Clinic.  You will be assessed by our Nurse Practitioner,  Mrs Lynn Cross  who is able to assess and treat a range of common health problems and prescribe medication if required. This Nurse has been trained to spot signs of more serious illness and will alert the Duty Doctor. 

 

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make a travel appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. You will need to be ready to explain which countries and areas within countries which you are visiting so we can advise you appropriately and also let you know what vaccinations are required.

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 may have to be ordered as they may not be held within our stock vaccines. 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. A summary of our private fees and charges can be found here: Summary of 28 Beaumont Street vaccine charges
