Travelling in Europe

Due to changes and the increased pressure we are experiencing in the provision of care services in our NHS GP Practice, we have decided to cease offering our travel advice service. Patients who plan to travel abroad are now recommended to seek travel advice online. There are several online travel advice providers available to consult, https://www.masta-travel-health.com, https://travelhealthpro.org.uk Fit for Travelhttps://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk

We are advised by NHSEI, BMA and RCGP that travel vaccinations remain a low clinical priority, set against the context of the wider pandemic NHS recovery, patient access, long term condition management and offering the Covid vaccination programme.  However, we recognise that they remain important to our patients.  We will endeavour to do what we can, but, given the wider demands on our time which are clinically urgent, you may be advised that the time window for your vaccinations is inconvenient for your travel plans.  In this scenario if we have no availability to accommodate your needs, we will signpost you to local private travel providers, who may also be able to serve any additional needs. 

Patients registered at Market Weighton Practice are able to access their vaccination records through the online Patient Access service.  Please note that the vaccinations recorded are those given by the NHS and may not include those given privately. If there is a recommendation for vaccinations based on the country or countries you plan to visit and the type of travel you are undertaking, then we would advise you to attend a private travel clinic.  The private travel clinic will also be able to advise you on malaria protection, if needed.  Anti-malarial medication to help provide protection against contracting malaria is now available to purchase over the counter at most pharmacies.

As part of our NHS general medical services, we are still able to provide vaccination against Tetanus, Typhoid and Hepatitis A, only if your online travel risk assessment definitely advises these for your travel itinerary and you have accessed your vaccination records and not had them previously, or they are out of date before your travel departure date.

If the above criteria is reached the patient will need to bring written evidence with them from travel advice service showing that the above vaccinations are required. This evidence would need to be shown at the appointment and before vaccinations take place.

Please remember that if your travel is work related you need to go through the Occupational Health department associated with your place of work for travel advice, vaccinations etc or attend a private travel clinic funded by your employer.

Non-NHS services

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:

  • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
  • Private sick notes
  • Vaccination certificates

The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales. Our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them, along with our appointment availability. Please note: a GP must be agreeable for the Non-NHS services to be completed.


Research

Would you like to help us develop new treatments and services?

Research is not all about testing new medicines. You could try out brand new methods of psychological, social or emotional support, help researchers find out more about the genetics involved in certain conditions, or simply answer questions about your health and wellbeing to help us ensure that future services meet your needs.

These are just some examples of the things you could do to help with research projects aimed to improve healthcare for you and others.

Research is our best hope for a brighter future. If you would like to know more, with no obligation to take part, please contact our team using the details below, or visit our website for more information.
