The NHS need people who've had coronavirus (COVID-19) to donate blood plasma to potentially help others. Blood plasma is a yellowish liquid that makes up about half your blood volume. After a virus, your plasma contains antibodies that are vital in helping to fight infections, like COVID-19. The NHS are collecting blood plasma for use in scientific research and possible COVID-19 treatments, especially for those who are elderly or have weaker immune systems. If you are 18-65 who's had COVID-19 then please visit https://rb.gy/vptins  for more information. Thank for all your support.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you are travelling abroad you will need to read the information contained in the following link before booking an appointment with the nurse.  If you contact the surgery to book an appointment the receptionist will ask if you have read the information, which country you are visiting and what vaccinations you require.

Below is a list of vaccinations and how long they will protect you for:

Hepatitis A - 1 dose will cover you for up to 1 year.  If you receive a second dose within 6-12 months of your originally vaccination this will then protect you for 25 years.

Typhoid - 3 years

Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio - 10 years

For information on foreign travel click here.

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.
