Noticeboard

Corona Virus: Patients concerned that they may have Corona Virus or may have come into contact with someone who has, are advised to visit www.gov.uk or Tel: 119.  Please DO NOT come to the Surgery or visit A&E or a Walk in Centre, STAY AT HOME and contact 119.

We are temporarily changing our access model to a telephone first clinical contact model - whereby clinicians perform a clinical triage for all appointments to gather more information about the patient problem and of course if a face to face contact is needed one is provided later that day.  Please watch this helpful video outlining how to get healthcare during the Coronavirus outbreak https://youtu.be/nRN5qICY6Xs

Regent Medical Centre offers same day appointments for acutely unwell children - just contact the Surgery on Tel: 0191 223 6555 to speak to a member of our team.  

Would you like your repeat prescriptions to be sent to your chosen pharmacy electronically?  This can be set up very easily just ask at the reception desk. 

Do we have your current mobile telephone number? If not please see the Receptionist who can add it to your records, then in the future we can text you an appointment reminder.

The Practice is required by the Government to inform all patients of their own Named Accountable GP.  The Named Accountable GP for all patients at Regent Medical Centre is Dr V Kaura. However you are still free to see any GP of your choice.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

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

 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia 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.
