As you may know, Ivy Court Surgery, Hamstreet Surgery and Woodchurch Surgery have been working closely together for well over a year now on various projects such as the Weekend Urgent Care Service and the ‘Virtual Ward’ for the elderly and vulnerable.
You may also be aware that there have been difficulties with obtaining appointments with other private travel clinics in Ashford. This has caused significant problems for us in rural Ashford as travelling further than Ashford is inconvenient and not always possible. In some cases, it has meant our patients travelling 30 miles to obtain their travel vaccinations. We feel this is unacceptable.
Following complaints from patients in the cluster regarding the lack of a local travel service, the doctors and practice managers of our three surgeries have had several meetings to see if this service could be setup in our surgeries. We are delighted to announce the start of our own Travel Advice and Vaccination service as of the 5th November 2015. This we hope will be another valuable service to our patients, and will be provided through Ashford Rural Medical Services (through which the urgent care service and our other collabarative projects are delivered).
As a specific travel advice service is not covered by the NHS, there will unfortunately be a fee for the service, which we hope you understand.
There will be one clinic each week, alternating on a Tuesday from Hamstreet Surgery and the following week on a Thursday from Ivy Court in Tenterden.
To book in for this, please telephone your surgery. At this stage, this service is reserved for registered patients of our three surgeries
