Clinics & Services

MORE INFORMATION ON OUR CLINICS & SERVICES.

Travel

if you are travelling and you require any vaccinations you firstly need to complete a travel vaccination questionnaire, available to print below or from the surgery. our nursing team will then check the information you have given on the form and a member of staff will be in touch to let you know which vaccinations are recommended for the countries and areas within countries that you are visiting.

It is important to complete the form as fully and as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel to allow time for the nurse to check the form and for the recommended vaccinations to be given, especially as some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not kept in stock. It is recommended that all courses should be completed at least two weeks before you travel to allow for the vaccinations to work.

Some vaccinations are available on the nhs. Some travel vaccines are ordered privately and these incur a charge. This is because travel vaccination is not included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.

Pregnancy Services

NEW MATERNITY SELF-BOOKING system AT T&S

On Monday 11th March the Maternity Digital Transformation programme launched a new online self-referral form on the T&S website maternity for newly pregnant women to register for maternity services.

This will allow their admin team to complete pre-registration information required for clinical systems as they prepare to offer a ‘paper-light’ clinical documentation system, Medway Maternity. The form collects basic demographic details alongside basic obstetric and medical history. Once a self-referral has been submitted a midwife will contact the patient directly to offer early pregnancy advice and to arrange an appointment at a suitable time and place.

When a pregnant lady presents at your surgery to request a booking appointment please also direct her to complete the online form services to allow direct communication with her midwife before her appointment.
