The nurse will discuss with you your travel arrangements and advise on what vaccinations you require.It is important to make this initial appointment for at least 6-weeks in advance of travelling. This is because travel vaccines often need ordering or prescribing, so you may need another visit to have these vaccinations administered. Additionally, some travel vaccines are chargeable. Changing and cancelling appointmentsWherever possible please give at least 24 hours notice if you need to change or cancel your nurse appointment at the surgery. The appointment slot can then be offered to another patient. Failing to attend appointments is not fair on others requiring, but unable to obtain, an appointment, and wastes valuable time for the nurse. On average, 16% of patients fail to keep their nurse appointment - that is one appointment in every six wasted. More than 2 appointments that you ‘Did Not Attend’ (DNA) in a 12 month period can result in a cautionary letter being sent to you. Additional DNAs can result in you and those registered at the same address being removed from the practice list.

Post natal appointments are held at the practice by the doctors. This appointment should usually take place 6-8 weeks after the birth of a baby, and checks both mother and baby. If is important your baby attends their Post Natal check in the time-frame suggested. Health Visitors
Health Visitors are qualified and experienced nurses or midwives with additional specialist training in family, community or public health care. There are Health Visitors attached to, but not based at the practice. Child Immunisations
The Practice Nurses administer child immunisations. Your Health Visitor will have discussed the importance of immunisations before you take your baby to see the nurse and answered any of your concerns. Your baby cannot be immunised without parental consent. Therefore if a grandparent is bringing the baby, written consent must be brought with the child and pre-signed by the parent.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
Please note that in order for a doctor to assess your condition and if necessary issue a 'Statement for Fitness to Work', patients must be seen during the episode of illness as certificates cannot be issued retrospectively.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
