The practice nurses give advice for foreign travel and administer most vaccinations for patients registered with the practice. The practice does not issue NHS prescriptions for drugs for use when travelling abroad.
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 the country and areas within country that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, you must complete and hand in the travel health questionnaire form to reception at least 6 weeks before you travel. This will give the nurse enough time to order your vaccinations and book you an appointment. The appointment booked is for you and NOT your family, if all your family need vaccinations for the same trip you must complete one form per family member and let the receptionist know the appointment is for a family.
Travel Risk Assessment Form.pdf
Our nurse is unable to give advice if you are travelling to several destinations in the same trip, we advise you to go to a travel centre where you will receive expert advice and care.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below or visit the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) website.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be necessary with the practice nurse for certain vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not part of our general stock. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Most 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. Our charges are reviewed on an annual basis.

A new specialist service is available to GP practices in the Bromley Borough. Your GP has requested that a clinical specialist reviews your case. This specialist will decide which would be the most appropriate service to see you about your condition, This may be in one of the new community specialist services or a hospital based service. In some cases, the specialist may offer advice to your GP to help them to manage your condition.
Within 8-10 days you should be contacted by the Bromley Patient Referral Centre to discuss with you a convenient date and time for your appointment. Please make sure your GP has your current contact details. This will avoid any delays in getting hold of you.
If you have any questions about the timing or location of the clinic then please tell the staff when they contact you. For questions relating to your medical condition, please contact your GP.
Your feedback on this new collaboration is important to us. If you are referred into the community service, you will be asked about your views and experience of the service at the end of the treatment. Your comments will help to guide us and improve healthcare.

You can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP, request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly and look at your medical record online.
Being able to see your record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. It also means that you can even access it from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday. If you decide not to join or wish to withdraw from this service, this is your choice and this decision will not affect the quality of your care.ce
You will be given login details, so you will need to think of a password which is unique to you. This will ensure that only you are able to access your record – unless you choose to share your details with a family member or carer.
The practice has the right to remove Patient Access services to anyone that does not use them responsibly.
Before you apply for online access to your record, there are some other things to consider.
Although the chances of any of these things happening are very small, you will be asked that you have read and understood the following before you are given login details.
Things to consider
There may be something you have forgotten about in your record that you might find upsetting.
Abnormal results or bad news
If your GP has given you access to test results or letters, you may see something that you find upsetting to you. This may occur before you have spoken to your doctor or while the surgery is closed and you cannot contact them.
Choosing to share your information with someone
It’s up to you whether or not you share your information with others – perhaps family members or carers. It’s your choice, but also your responsibility to keep the information safe and secure.
If you think you may be pressured into revealing details from your patient record to someone else against your will, it is best that you do not register for access at this time.
Your medical record is designed to be used by clinical professionals to ensure that you receive the best possible care. Some of the information within your medical record may be highly technical, written by specialists and not easily understood. If you require further clarification, please contact the surgery for a clearer explanation.
Information about someone else
If you spot something in the record that is not about you or notice any other errors, please log out of the system immediately and contact the practice as soon as possible.
Please come into the surgery and complete a registration form.
Requirements: Photo ID, proof of residence.
It will be your responsibility to keep your login details and password safe and secure. If you know or suspect that your record has been accessed by someone that you have not agreed should see it, then you should change your password immediately. If you cannot do this, we recommend that you contact the practice so that we can remove online access until you are able to reset your password.
If you print out any information from your record, it is also your responsibility to keep this secure. If you are at all worried about keeping printed copies safe, we recommend that you do not make copies at all.
You can still use our telephone number (020 8464 4138) or email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any of these services.
If you would like to access your medical records we require you to complete the Access to Medical Records Form.
Access to Medical Records Form
If you require a copy of your full medical record or part of your medical record there is a charge for this, please speak with reception, or view the 'Travel & Private Medical Fees' tab above.
Data Protection & Freedom of Information
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
For more information see the DirectGov website (where this information was sourced).
Your GP does not provide this information. Please DO NOT book an appointment. A school should accept a note from the child's parent or guardian. Please speak to reception for further information.
From the 25th May 2018 we will no longer charge patients to receive a copy of their medical record. If you require a copy of your medical record you will be asked to come in to collect your them from the surgery. We will not post, fax or email your medical records.
