CQC INSPECTION

Dear Patients

The practice is having their routine CQC (Care Quality Commission) Inspection on 16th March 2018.  Both our sites (Kenton and Benwell) will be inspected to ensure we are providing the best service to our patients.

There are comment cards available in the surgery if you would like to give your feedback to CQC.

Our last routine inspection was held on 4th December 2014 and the practice was rated as GOOD in every category.

You can view the previous report on the CQC Website or there is a link on this home page.

Thank you for your support

Julie Wade

Practice Manager

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.
