From the 1st December 2017 we will not be providing any further travel vaccinations and we suggest patients attend Basingstoke Travel Clinic or the local pharmacies.
The reason for this is that we need to increase the Practice Nurses provision of diabetes, asthma, chronic lung disease and children's immunisation clinics.
So for this reason, and in common in other GP surgeries, we are prioritising all Practice Nurse time towards these areas of patient care and suggest patients seek their private travel immunisations from other local providers.
FLU SEASON is upon us
Flu vaccinations are now available for those in the following categories:
Anyone Living with a long term medical condition
Everyone aged 65 and over
People with caring responsibilities
Please ring reception to book an appointment

Your GP Cares (Item from the BMA)
The environment in which GPs are striving to provide services is increasingly challenging.
The burning issues are:
- An increased demand on general practice caused by demographic changes, more complex health needs and some care moving out of hospitals is all contributing to unsustainable pressures on GP services.
- Based on the current number of doctors working as GPs, and the staff who support them in the general practice team, there are simply not enough hours in the day to meet everyone’s needs.
- Practices are struggling to recruit to vacant posts in their practices and to find locum cover so that patients can still be seen if a colleague is sick or absent.
- The increasing demand and workload pressures are leading to low morale and stress causing many GPs to leave the profession or to consider early retirement.
- Many GP practice buildings are old and need investment to create more room for patients to be seen or simply to make them fit for purpose.
- GPs and their practice teams must have greater support to deliver high quality services that meet the requirements of all their local patients.
