- Flu Vaccinations: People at risk will be contacted by the surgery.
- Travel/Holiday Advice: Please make an appointment to discuss your requirements with the practice nurse. Due to changes in NHS policy, Greystoke Surgery and the Practice Nurses can no longer administer private vaccinations for travel. The surgery can still offer travel health advice and NHS travel vaccinations. If travelling, you can book a 20 minute telephone advice slot with one of our practice nurses preferably in good time before travel, and the nurse can discuss the travel advice and book you in for any NHS vaccines necessary. You also have the option of going to one of the private travel clinics e.g. Health Hut Pharmacy in Morpeth, Boots in Eldon Square (Masta travel clinic downstairs), or Superdrug in Newcastle. For information you can go to Nathnac.org.uk (travel health pro) or www.masta-travel-health.com
