April 2021 News

Training and Teaching

You may be aware that most of the GPs at Danes Camp & Rillwood Medical Practice Partnership have significant experience as GP trainers providing education and clinical supervision for Medical Students and GP Registrars at Danes Camp Medical Centre.

In engaging the same GP trainers it is anticipated that Rillwood Medical Centre will also become a training practice for Medical Students and Registrars from as early as the end of April 2021.

Our qualified GP trainers will be actively involved in mentoring and supervising each clinical consultation. You will be informed if a student or registrar will be taking a role in your consultation (telephone or face-to-face) and your consent will be sought prior to them consulting with you. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality and professional conduct as all of our regularly employed clinicians.

Travel Vaccinations

global air travel

From 1 February 2017 chargeable travel vaccination services will no longer be available at Rillwood Medical Centre. These include Hepatitis B, Rabies, Tuberculosis (TB), Yellow Fever, Meningitis, Japanese encephalitis and tick-borne encephalitis.

However, the following information is offered to our patients as a guide to help determine what (if any), travel vaccinations are required for the areas that they intend to visit when travelling.

Which jabs do I need?

You can find out which vaccinations are necessary or recommended for the areas you'll be visiting on these two websites:

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel most pharmacies that provide this service suggest that you contact them six to eight weeks prior to date of travel to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include identifying which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

If you're only travelling to countries in northern and central Europe, North America or Australia, you're unlikely to need any vaccinations.

People with immune deficiencies

For some people travelling overseas, vaccination against certain diseases may not be advised. This may be the case if:

  • you have a condition that affects your body's immune system, such as HIV or AIDS
  • you're receiving treatment that affects your immune system, such as chemotherapy
  • you've recently had a bone marrow or organ transplant

Travel vaccines are not usually kept as standard stock items by centres offering travel vaccinations and will usually have to be ordered as required (not less than 6 weeks before your intended date of travel). A second appointment will also be necessary and 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 and have to be paid for on a private basis.

Private travel vaccinations

You're likely to have to pay for travel vaccinations against:

Yellow fever vaccines are only available from designated centres. Danes Camp Medical Centre is a registered yellow fever centre. Please ask the receptionists for details of charges.

BOOTS Pharmacy

At Boots, our specially-trained travel health pharmacists can provide advice and information on immunisation. You can also use our online quick check tool to find out if malaria prevention medication is recommended for your trip and which vaccinations should be considered.

We recommend speaking to a Boots pharmacist six to eight weeks before you travel. However, even if time is short, we can still help you with options to consider. 

Lloyds Pharmacy Online Doctor

Our travel vaccination service offers a free assessment for people who are unsure which vaccines they need for their holiday. If you already know what you need, we also offer individual vaccines. Order online and get vaccinated in one of over 200 participating Lloyds Pharmacy stores.
