2019 Seasonal Flu Invite

We are inviting those of you who are eligible for the seasonal ‘flu’ vaccine to our Saturday walk in clinics which will take place on the 12th October (adults only), the 26th October and 2nd November (adults and children) between 9am-11am. There are no appointments and it is a walk in service only which will be manned by a large team here at the practice.

Pregnancy & Midwife Appointments *new*

If you have just found out that you are pregnant, you can now refer yourself to the maternity services at Guy's & St Thomas' (click here) OR at King's College Hospital (click here). Please do so as soon as you have found out that you are pregnant. You should hear back from the hospital and have a midwife appointment at 10 weeks. If you have a long-term condition such as diabetes, hypertension, thyroid problems, please see a GP for us to refer you and amend medications etc.

If you are already pregnant and seeing our mid-wife colleagues, please note that their clinic has now moved to the Artesian Health Centre, 138 Grange Road, London, SE1 3GF . All midwife appointments now take place at the Artesian, rather than at Albion Street.

Try the new NHS App

If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.

If you already use Patient access, Evergreen, Life, Dimec or My GP app you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well. For more information go to www.nhs.uk/nhsapp 

There are now a large range of health related apps available. Check your app store for options but please ask us if you need advice.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel:

Please ensure you give us at least 6 week’s notice if this is not the case it is unlikely we will be able to offer you an appointment at the practice and you will have to attend an external travel clinic.

  • You will need to complete a travel form (available at reception or clicking here:Travel Form) and return the form to reception.

Your destination(s) with details of areas within countries that you are visiting, length of stay at each location, and your contact details (including your email address)

  • A member of our nursing team will then contact you via email. They will make a recommendation (having checked your immunisation record) about what you need and also suggest next steps.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:

Central America Central AmericaSouth America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
Caribbean CaribbeanAfrica Africa
Middle East Middle EastCentral Asia Central Asia
East Asia East AsiaAustralasia  Australasia and Pacific

It is important that you contact us at least 6 weeks before you travel as some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not stock items.

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. For more information click here.


Anti-Malarials can no longer be given on NHS prescription

Recent changes in Southwark mean that unfortunately GPs can no longer prescribe malaria prevention medicines for travel on NHS prescriptions, but can do so on private prescriptions. For more information please see here.

Travelling in Europe

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