All patients will now be required to wear their own face covering when attending an appointment at the surgery (exemptions apply to very young children, disabled patients and those with breathing difficulties)


Appointments:


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently operating via telephone triage. We are requesting all patients to contact the surgery via telephone providing a brief reason for the telephone consultation. A clinician will then contact you and attempt to meet your needs over the telephone. If the clinician decides you require a face to face appointment, this will be booked by them and you will be asked screening questions. Patients will be assessed in the Covid Annex which is based in the car park. You will be directed there by a receptionist. Please remember to make a receptionist aware you have arrived as you will need checking in. Furthermore, patients are to follow the 2 metre distancing rule and to please use the provided hand sanitisers when entering the building.


ALL CLINCIANS ARE WEARING FULL PPE WHEN SEEING PATIENTS FACE TO FACE.


Prescriptions:


To avoid the spread of COVID-19, we request patients to nominate a pharmacy in order for your prescription to be sent electronically. You can request your prescription online using our online services, post your request in the entrance door letterbox or email: gordonstreet.prescriptions@nhs.net


We know this will be a difficult time for our patients, and their families, friends and carers. We appreciate your understanding and support in helping us to protect our patients and staff.  

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 (includes Saudi, Dubai) Central Asia Central Asia(includes Pakistan & Afghanistan)
East Asia East Asia (includes India, Maldives) Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to fill in the travel health questionnaire as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel. The nurse will then telephone you to advise on required vaccines. If they can be done at the surgery, the nurse will be able to book an appointment for you.

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 Surgery.
