If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements and to determine what vaccinations are required. Your Travel Clinic appointment should be at least 6 weeks before you travel.
Travel Health Questionnaire
Please print out and complete our Travel Risk Assessment We shall need to see the completed questionnaire at least two working days before your Travel Clinic appointment. Remember to include details of any previous vaccinations but please also check fitfortravel.nhs.uk/for more information.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a further appointment may be required to complete vaccination course. Some vaccines may have to be ordered if they are not a stock vaccine. You need to complete your vaccinations at least 2 weeks before you travel to give them time to become effective.
Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS, therefore some will incur a charge.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view).
Yellow Fever Centre
We are pleased to inform you that this practice is also a designated Yellow Fever Centre.
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 at our reception or on the HMRC website.
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.

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 and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Please allow 21 days for completion of private medical reports. Private referral letters will be ready for collection in 3 working days.

Why GPs sometimes charge fees
North Road Surgery does not offer an occupational health service. Pre-employment investigations, tests and vaccinations are the responsibility of the employer. The General Practitioners and Practice Nurses are, therefore, unable to comply with requests for employment-related investigations and vaccinations.
For your convenience, if you are pregnant, you can refer yourself directly to hospital for antenatal care without needing to see a GP first. Please visit the following:
