Noticeboard

FAO Patients transferred from Promenade Medical Centre - We would like to extend a warm welcome from the team at Palatine Group Practice (PGP) 

Unfortunately there is an inaccuracy in the letter you have received from DHSC specifically in relation to 'Patient Access'. We are unable to sign you up for this at the moment. Your previous access from Promenade unfortunately does not transfer across. Please order any repeat prescriptions in the interim by emailing palatineprescriptions@gov.im and remember to include the pharmacy that you wish us to forward your prescription to for collection and as soon as we resume 'normal' services we will sign you up on your first visit to the Practice with Photographic ID and proof of address. Kind regards.

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.
