Travel Vaccinations

BOOK NOW! DON’T DELAY!!  Are you planning to travel somewhere exotic this summer?

A pre-travel risk assessment provides a good opportunity to discuss travel associated risks with a Practice Nurse. Find out if you need travel vaccinations and make sure that your vaccinations are up to date.

Please ask for a copy of our ‘Travel Risk Assessment Form’ at reception or complete the information online http://www.darwinmedicalpractice.co.uk/clinics-and-services.aspx?t=3

Once completed, return the form to the surgery and book your appointment with one of our Practice Nurses.

Book your vaccinations at least 8 weeks before you travel as some vaccines need to be given well in advance and some involve a number of doses spread over several weeks.

Extended Access Appointments

From the 1st of September 2018, in addition to the Practice's normal opening hours, you can also book an appointment to see a local clinician in the evenings between 6:30pm to 8:00pm, or on Saturday and Sunday at locations across Lichfield and Burntwood. GP practices are working together to provide Extended Access appointments to our patients. this means that your appointment may be with a different GP or health professional based in a different location or Practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only. These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the surgery during our normal opening times. When you call, our receptionists will be able to help you find a suitable appointment.

 

Missed Appointments

Thank you to all the patients who attended their appointments in the month of July 2019. Unfortunately 329 appointments were wasted due to non-attendance.

If you are unable to keep your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so that we are able to offer it to someone else.

Your co-operation is much appreciated.
