Travel is a non-NHS service. If you are planning a trip abroad and think you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, please use the website Travel Health Pro to determine what vaccinations you are required/advised to have and Fit to Travel for up to date travel advice for your destination. This will include which countries and areas within countries you are visiting.
It is up to you to decide what vaccinations to have.
You then need to make a 20 minute appointment with the practice nurse at least 2 weeks before you travel, to allow the vaccines to work.
When booking the appointment please inform the reception staff when and where you will be travelling, as some vaccines are not a stock vaccine and have to be ordered in advance. Some travel vaccines have to be 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.
Free travel vaccinations included by the NHS are:
All other travel vaccinations are treated as private for travel purposes. Therefore, if your Travel Health Pro information recommend other vaccinations that we cannot provide, you will have to obtain them from a private travel clinic, but please be advised, you will need to book an appointment with a private travel clinic at least 6 weeks in advance of your intended trip, as you may need a course of vaccinations.

South Milford Surgery is not a registered Yellow Fever vaccination centre, therefore if your planned foreign travel requires you to have a Yellow Fever vaccination, you will need to find an alternative clinic.
Please click on the link to find your nearest Yellow Fever Centre - Find Yellow Fever Centre
If you are travelling to remote areas where access to medical care is limited, we strongly advise you to carry a medical kit appropriate to the nature of your trip.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales.

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
We can provide form (SC1) for those who are self-employed or unemployed.
We will not provide a sick note during this initial period.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
