Noticeboard

COVID19

Please do not call the surgery if you have a general query regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.  Instead please look on the NHS Inform Website or use the national helpline 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.

Vaccine roll out to the general public, based on age and underlying health conditions, will start as soon as possible, and will depend on vaccine supply.  This is likely to start in the New Year so please look out for a letter and a leaflet arriving in the post which will invite you to make an appointment for your vaccine.

The first group to receive this will be the over 80’s.  Please avoid calling with any queries about the vaccine or when you will be vaccinated as we are unable to give you any more information at this stage and we need to try to keep the phone lines open for people who are unwell and in need of medical care.

Many thanks for your ongoing patience and cooperation

 

If you have a new cough, fever, loss of taste/smell or are awaiting results of a COVID test, please DO NOT ATTEND the surgery. We are currently operating a telephone triage and if you need to be seen the GP will arrange this. Please wear a face covering if you attend the practice.

 

ALL PRESCRIPTIONS SHOULD BE COLLECTED FROM A NOMINATED CHEMIST, NOT THE SURGERY.


 

From 1st May 2019, the Practice will be closed for staff training on the 1st Wednesday of each month, between 11.45am - 1.15pm. If you need a doctor urgently during this time, please call 9429494 and select option 1.

 

Denbridge Surgery Travel Clinic

Denbridge Surgery provides a Travel Clinic which offers advice and NHS vaccinations.  NHS vaccinations include diphtheria with poliomyelitis and tetanus, hepatitis A and typhoid.  Some travel destinations require vaccination against a variety of other diseases such as yellow fever, rabies or malaria.  Vaccination against these conditions is not available on the NHS and, therefore, if you require these vaccinations we would recommend that you attend a specialist Travel Clinic.  There are a large number of these clinics available in Glasgow.

If you are unsure which travel vaccinations you may require, the NHS 'Fit for Travel' website provides a lot of useful information which may be of assistance.  The website address for this site is www.fitfortravel.NHS.uk.  If you remain unsure, then please make an appointment at our Travel Clinic and our practice nurse will be able to give you detailed advice.

If you wish to make an appointment at our Travel Clinic, please download and fill out the travel questionnaire (see below) and hand it into Reception at the surgery.  The receptionist will then either give you an appointment to see the nurse or will take contact details for the nurse to 'phone you with further advice.

We would ask that you attend the Travel Clinic at least 6 to 8 weeks before travel and 3 to 6 months before prolonged travel.  Please bring along any records of previous vaccinations such as childhood, school and occupational vaccinations.
