Travel Clinic

Travel Clinic

 

We remain challenged by the national shortage of travel vaccine for:-

Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Diptheria, Tetanus, Polio and Pneumococcal. This is a national problem and we do not currently have any information as to when these vaccines will become available.  Therefore we are unable to offer a comprehensive travel clinic.

 

We will offer telephone appointments to discuss travel vaccinations with Jenny Pullen on a Tuesday; Jenny can then discuss your travel plans and advise you on what you need.

Electronic Prescription Service to your choice of pharmacy

We have a system called Electronic Prescription Service  which means we can send your prescription electronically to your choice of pharmacy.  You need to set up a nomination at your preferred pharmacy.

If you have asked us to send your prescription to JMW Vicary unless you nominate them we still have to print if and take it manually.

Therefore from 1 October 17 we will send all repeat prescription requests where the patient has asked it to be dispensed by JMW Vicary electronically.  This will be more efficient and the prescription will go direct from the GP to the pharmacy without the need to be printed off and sorted by the reception team.

IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR PRESCRIPTION TO BE SENT ELECTRONICALLY TO JMW VICARY PLEASE INFORM RECEPTION.

Thank you.
