A letter from the GP Surgeries in Felixstowe

 

As I am sure you are aware, we are all facing difficult uncertain times with the current coronavirus pandemic.  The advice for many older people and those at risk is to stay at home to prevent contracting the virus.  If you feel you would be unable to support yourself by staying at home, I am delighted to advise that help is available locally.

 

Felixstowe Helping Hands have a team of volunteers who would be able to help you by doing shopping, dog walking, collecting prescriptions etc.  They will also provide phone calls to reassure and to combat loneliness.  They can be contacted on 07479 556736

 

We also have social prescribers in Felixstowe, Hayley and Debbie, who are also able to put you in touch with other support services.   Hayley can be reached on 07879 602327 and Debbie on 07917 324861.

 

With very best wishes

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

Dr Paul Driscoll, Partner at Haven Health

Dr Steven Feltwell, Partner at The Grove Medical Centre

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.

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 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.


Travel Health Questionnaire

Travel questionnaires are available for collection from Reception at the Surgery and should be completed and returned prior to arranging the initial appointment. This will help us offer the appropriate advice before coming to see the nurse.


Travelling in Europe

If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
