Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION 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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print and complete the travel questionaire below or pick a form up from reception - once completed hand into reception - please leave adequate time to allow the nurse to review your form and contact you re vaccinations and cost.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Viaduct Care will provide direct access to First Contact Physiotherapy practitioners (FCP) in Primary Care. The aim of this service is to increase capacity by enabling patients presenting with a musculoskeletal (MSK) condition to gain direct access to an MSK assessment by the FCP Physiotherapist without having to first see a GP and be referred into a service. Patients will be able to contact their practice and be offered an appointment with a FCP physiotherapist as an alternative to an appointment with their GP.
Patients will then undergo specialist MSK assessment by practitioners in Primary Care and where appropriate be able to be referred for diagnostic investigation, injection therapy or receive treatment in Primary Care. This service will also have access to on-going community physiotherapy.
Viaduct Care has been asked to deliver a service providing Mental Wellbeing and Self-care support to meet the needs of those patients presenting to General Practice with lifestyle and social needs and/or low level mental health related conditions, where there is no specific medical intervention required.
GP’s will be able to refer patients to a Mental Health and Wellbeing & Self Care Navigator who will support people to develop a personalised care and wellbeing plan and access a range of services such as social prescribing, self-care resources (online and face to face), peer support, mental health alliance and other voluntary sector groups. People may also be signposted to other services for housing, relationships, employment or debt advice too.
Access to Mental Health and Wellbeing Coaches and Self-care workers referrals will also be offered to people with a long-term condition or with risk factors which increase the likelihood of developing a long-term condition to support lifestyle changes, social connection and resilience and behavioural improvements.
People will be supported to take control of their own health and focus on changing what matters to them. Supporting people living with a long-term condition requires a partnership with patients over the longer term rather than providing single, unconnected “episodes” of care. Using Patient Activation tools the service will appropriately match services to people depending on their level of confidence and motivation to change their behaviours. The service will offer five evidence based interventions which have significant potential to improve quality of life for people with long-term conditions and deliver benefits across the three dimensions of value: Mental and Physical health and wellbeing, NHS sustainability and wider social outcomes.
These are:1.Peer support2.Self-management education3.Health coaching4.Group activities to support health and wellbeing5.Asset-based approaches in a health and wellbeing context
Key benefits of this service are:•Support to General Practice releasing capacity in an already stretched service.•Patients underlying problems are appropriately identified.•Improved and appropriate care navigation within the health and social care system for the neighbourhood population, i.e. patients referred to the appropriate services based on their needs.•Improving access to the community and voluntary sector services and resources available to support people Better value for all, i.e. more people can access the service with outcomes that will have a positive impact on both physical and mental well-being.•Facilitating access to informative and motivational online resources, including space for online mutual support.•Proactive engagement and support for people to improve their self-care, tailored according to need using the Patient Activation Measure.•Increasing numbers of people actively engaging in voluntary activity, complementing and adding value to the work of Stockport Together to improve health, wellbeing and interdependence.
Please ask at the reception if you would like to access any of these services.
A veteran is someone who has served in the armed forces for at least one day. There are around 2.6 million veterans in the UK.
When servicemen and women leave the armed forces, their healthcare is the responsibility of the NHS.
It is highly important for continuing healthcare that you register with an NHS GP and remember to tell them you've served. Telling the GP practice about your veteran status will trigger the transfer of your full medical documentation from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to your GP and enable you to benefit from veteran-specific services, like prosthetics and mental health.
The Royal British Legion Knowledge Base has details of services and sources of support at a local and national level for the armed forces community.
You may find there are other veteran-focused mental health services provided in our area by clicking on the links below.
From 1st April 2013, all patients registered with a Stockport GP have been entitled to access a new service to manage minor eye conditions. This service has been commissioned by the CCG and is provided by 21 local optometry (optician) practices. There is a website for patients which also has a list of conditions treated, how to book an appointment with the service and participating practices available to download http://stockportmecs.co.uk/
Under the IAPT scheme (improving access to psychological therapies), we are now able to offer self-referral to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This has been shown to be very effective for the treatment of mile to moderate anxiety and depression. You may wish to discuss this with your GP first, or they may have directed you to our website. You can download the forms then complete and send them to the CBT department yourself, hopefully giving you quicker access to the help you need.
