Noticeboard

Our Vaccination Teams are working tirelessly to ensure patients are vaccinated as swiftly as possible. We work with 7 other practices as Swift Primary Care Network (PCN) offering vaccinations from our Vaccination Site at Knowle West Healthy Living Centre. We also work with our neighbouring PCN, Bridgeview Medical, to ensure our patients have the best possible opportunities for vaccination.  We are making great progress. Most of our patients over 75 have had a first vaccination and we are now moving into the next groups (over 70's & clinically extremely vulnerable). 


We will contact you as soon as we can offer you a vaccination and, on occasion, you may hear directly from Bridgeview Medical.        


We are not linked with the NHS letters you may receive offering vaccinations at Ashton Gate but of course you should make the arrangements that best work for you.

OUR TRAVEL CLINIC IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE  - please see notice on home page

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.
