OVER 75 HEALTH CHECK

The Over 75 Health Check is a new initiative to improve overall health and well-being in the community. Its aim is to improve the care and support given to the over 75’s population. Cheylesmore Surgery can provide health checks to improve early diagnosis and health screening.
The Over 75 Health Check will be undertaken by an appointment with the Practice Nurse, you will require a set of blood tests prior to the appointment to ensure a full assessment can take place. Following the assessment you will receive personalised advice and if a needed, onward referral or signposting to appropriate support services.

TRAVEL VACCINES

Travel Vaccinations:

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse 6 weeks prior to travel to discuss your travel arrangements. Please check the nathnac website prior to booking an appointment with the practice nurse for the vaccinations required for your destination.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

 Europe & Russia North America

 Central America South America

 Caribbean Africa

 Middle East Central Asia

 East Asia Australasia and Pacific

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.

NON-NHS SERVICES

Non-NHS Services

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:

  • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)

  • Insurance claim forms

  • Prescriptions for taking medication abroad

  • Private sick notes

  • Vaccination certificates

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.

PNEUMONIA & SHINGLES VACCINE

You are eligible for the Pneumonia vaccine if you have one of the following:

  • aged over 65 years old

  • had your spleen removed, or your spleen does not work properly

  • a long-term respiratory disease

  • heart disease

  • chronic kidney disease

  • chronic liver disease

  • diabetes 

  • a suppressed immune system caused by a health condition such as HIV

  • a suppressed immune system caused by medication such as  chemotherapy or steroid tablets

  • a cochlear implant (a small hearing device fitted inside your ear) 

  • had cerebrospinal fluid

 You are eligible for the Shingles vaccine if: 

You are eligible for the shingles vaccine if you are aged 70 or 78 years old.

In addition, anyone who was previously eligible but missed out on their shingles vaccination remains eligible until their 80th birthday.

You can have the shingles vaccination at any time of year, as soon as you turn 70 or 78.

The shingles vaccine is not available on the NHS to anyone aged 80 or over because it seems to be less effective in this age group.

You can have the shingles vaccination at any time of year, though many people will find it convenient to have it at the same time as their annual flu vaccination.
