Weston Favell X-Ray

The drop-in x-ray service at Weston Favell Health Centre closed on Thursday 17th March. From Friday 18th March all patients will need to go to Northampton General Hospital Main Radiology Department (or to Danatre Hospital in Daventry)

Medical reports, Letters, forms etc.

We have been getting a great many requests for doctors to supply medical reports, letters, forms etc.

Much of this type of work is not covered by the NHS contract and has to be classified as private work and a fee charged. In the past the doctors have tried to complete these requests alongside their NHS work, however as you will be aware the NHS is under greater pressure than ever before and this means that doctors have less time to spare on requests for private work.

In the future the GPs will only be accepting requests for reports, letters and forms that they are obliged to complete as part of the NHS contract, or are directly concerned with a patient's health.

Thank you for your understanding.

Prescription Charges

The price of an item on a prescription was increased from £8.20 to £8.40 on 1st April 2016. The price of prepayment certificates remains unchanged at £29.10 for 3 months and £104.00 for 12 months which means that if you regularly have 2 items issued you could make a saving by prepaying.

Travel Immunisations - Important Information

We have recently had several patients expecting travel vaccinations to be provided at very short notice. The service we provide is not part of NHS contracted services and is provided for our patients convenience only.

For our nurses to be able to provide you with travel advice (based upon current recommendations), check your immunisation history and then administer any necessary vaccinations, they will need to have an initial telephone conversation with you at least six weeks before you intend to travel They will then arrange a further appointment for you/your family for any vaccinations to be given. The six week timescale is needed to ensure that there is sufficient time to complete vaccination schedules and to ensure that you have adequate provide protection before you travel.

If you are travelling at short notice i.e. less than 6 weeks, we will not be able to offer travel vaccinations and you will need to seek advice from a specialist travel clinic.

Please note: we are unable to offer Yellow fever vaccination.
