Noticeboard

IT systems in practices NHS Warrington Clinical Commissioning Group is advising patients that some practices are currently experiencing issues with slow IT systems, which may impact upon how quickly practice staff can help.

 

These issues are not the fault of staff within your GP practice, so please do be patient, they want to help you and will to their best to do so.

The slow access to systems is due to issues with the national N3 network - the national broadband network for the NHS - which is currently being replaced in stages across the country.

 

Local migration to the new Health and Social Care Network (the replacement for the N3 network) will take place within the next 6-8 weeks and once the work has been completed will provide a reliable and efficient service for GP practices. Thank you to all local people for their patience in this matter and for supporting your GP practice during the transition period.

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.

PLEASE BOOK A TELEPHONE CONSULTATION WITH OUR PRACTICE NURSE AT LEAST 6 WEEKS PRIOR TO TRAVEL.
**Please be aware there may be a charge for this service**

Travelling Abroad? 

Yellow Fever

The vaccine against YF has been used for more than 60 years. If you are visiting tropical parts of South America and Africa (see attached leaflet for map) you may need to be vaccinated.

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.
