Clinics and services on offer at the practice include:
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.
Our Travel Clinic was run by our practice nurse Sharon Williams every Thursday from 09:00 till 13:00.
At present we are not offering this service. We advise our patients to get in contact with their
nearest travel clinics and pharmacies.
Please do not book any Travel Vaccination appointment with GP's.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
If you are unable to arrange an appointment in the surgery please note there are some Pharmacies and other Travel Vaccination clinics in the local area.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form 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.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Rochdale Health Alliance was established in 2016 by GP practices from across the Rochdale Borough to streamline the way in which services are delivered. Each of the three areas of the borough elected GP’s to represent their locality and become directors on the board. The board is supported by a management team who ensure the day to day functioning of the organization.
In a time of change Health and Social Care across Greater Manchester is coming together to provide more efficient, cost effective healthcare and to encourage and engage the public in managing their own care where possible. GP practices across the borough who have historically worked independently have come together to work in a federated model to improve healthcare across the borough. Retaining their own identity and autonomy GP practices will work together and support community and hospital services including the public and voluntary sector to ensure healthcare is coordinated for the residents of the borough.
