FLU VACCINES NOW IN STOCK AND APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE TO BOOK.



Various appointments are available to book online. If you would like online access, please ask a receptionist. If you book a telephone appointment online, please ensure we have your correct phone number. Clinicians may not ring you at the specified appointment time.


Public Health England (PHE) has advised the public to ensure they have had two doses of MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) vaccine after outbreaks of measles have been confirmed across England. Anyone who is not sure if they are fully vaccinated is being advised to check with their GP practice. There have been 440 laboratory confirmed measles cases in England between 1 January 2018 and 9 May 2018. The increase in measles circulation is mainly associated with travel to and from Europe where there are large ongoing measles outbreaks. 


 

Chaperone 

During your care, a clinician may need to examine you. Occasionally this may involve an examination of intimate areas. We understand that this can be stressful and you may feel more comfortable with a chaperone. You may book a chaperone when making an appointment that may involve an examination of intimate areas.  

 

If this sort of examination is necessary the Clinician will explain:

  • why the examination is necessary and give you the opportunity to ask questions  

  • what the examination will involve  

  • ask your permission before carrying out the examination  

  • offer to have a chaperone present during the examination 



At all times the Clinician will respect your privacy during the examination and while dressing and undressing 

 

What is a chaperone?    

A chaperone is a person (can be a nurse or a trained non-clinical staff member) whose role is to act as a witness as a safeguard for both parties during a medical examination or procedure.  

If you have any questions or concerns about intimate examinations or chaperoning, please do not hesitate to ask one of the doctors or nurses.
