Noticeboard

FLU SEASON IS HERE. PLEASE BOOK APPOINTMENTS WITH THE NURSE FOR A FLU JAB AND ASK THE DOCTOR AT YOUR CONSULTATION TO GIVE ONE IF YOU NEED IT. 

Thank you for cooperating with the drug switches as advised by the MEDICINE MANAGEMENT TEAM AT THE CCG. 

Old Road West Surgery is disappointed at the decision by the Care Quality Commission to place the practice into special measures, following a practice inspection in August 2017. The CQC inspection report highlighted areas where the surgery was delivering a good service, which reflects the commitment of all practice staff to high quality patient care, but also identifies areas that we need to improve.

We take the safety and welfare of our patients very seriously and have already started addressing each of the CQC concerns through a robust action plan.

We are committed to making all necessary improvements for all of our patients and the practice is confident that the outcome of any future CQC inspection will reflect this.

Patients that may have specific feedback or questions regarding our service are encouraged to write directly to the practice via letter or email so that we can respond to each enquiry we receive.

Travel Vaccinations

global 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 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.


Travel Health Questionnaire

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse. It would be helpful if you could print the form off and bring it with you to your appointment. Thank you for your co-operation.
