Share your feedback to shape future General Practice care

NHS Bury CCG is carefully considering the longer term plans for Garden City to ensure that the best decision for ongoing medical provision for patients is made.

It is important that this consideration involves you and is informed by your feedback.

You will shortly be receiving a letter from the CCG to update you on the options and next steps and to explain how you can share your feedback by 5th August 2020.   Your feedback will be captured via an online survey, and we have included the link to the survey here for ease: https://www.onecommunitybury.co.uk/gc-medical-centre-feedback

 Thank you in advance for sharing your valued feedback.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel vaccination form to be collected from reception. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. Please allow 7 working days from dropping the form off for the nurse to assess.

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 drop the completed vaccination form to the surgery - at least 8 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.


Travel Health Questionnaire

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please attend the surgery and fill out our Travel Health Questionnaire before coming to see the nurse.
