PRACTICE PHARMACIST

Kemi Daniels has been with us now for a few months and she works every Thursday. She is very skilled at medication reviews and can answer all types of questions on prescribing and prescriptions.

If the receptionists suggests you see Kemi for a medication review and lifestyle advice, then this is because the practice would like you to do so. She supports us in our prescribing and also helps with audit work and monitoring of prescribing trends.

Practice Pharmacists have now been utilised in many practices nationally over the last few years and are proving to be a very useful resource to practices. You are still free to see the GP for your medication review should you wish, just let the receptionist know.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal 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.
