Maylands Patient Group 

In January 2011 the surgery set up a patient group.  The aim of the group is to provide a forum for our patients to discuss health promotion and local voluntary and social activities.  For more information, please see Items on the right of this screen, or contact Ruth Thacker, Assistant Manager.

We have a dedicated email address for the PPG which is hav-pct.ppg-maylands@nhs.net

Vaccinations

The surgery now offers the Yellow Fever vaccination

Travel Immunisations

The practice nurses will advise and arrange for foreign travel immunisations. There is a real risk of catching a number of serious diseases, even in the Mediterranean so check with the surgery in plenty of time before you travel to ensure you are protected.

Please note that not all travel vaccinations are available on the NHS and you may have to pay.  Payment will be collected at Reception BEFORE you receive the vaccination and you will be given a receipt to hand to the nurse.  Please ask when booking for current charges.

There is information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America india South America
egypt Carribean lithuania Africa
bulgaria Middle East poland Central Asia
china East Asia china 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.
