Blood Pressure Readings
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a blood pressure reading, please use our Blood Pressure Review form.
If you need a blood pressure reading, you do not need to make an appointment. A special automatic machine is available in the reception area. It will also measure your height and weight and calculate your BMI (Body Mass Index). You can take the printout to the receptionist (make sure your name and date of birth is written clearly on the back) who will make sure the reading is added to your record.
Please visit our Travel Room for vaccinations and travel advice.
Travelling abroad needs to be planned well in advance. Most vaccines need some time to become effective to protect you from disease. Start preparing for your trip at least six weeks before you go. You may need travel vaccines or, if diseases such as malaria are a risk, you may need to start protecting yourself well in advance.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, you will need to initially complete a Travel Risk Assessment form, giving details of your travel plans. This includes which countries/areas you will be visiting, to determine what vaccinations are required.
You will then be booked for an appointment to see a nurse to discuss your travel vaccine needs. Each member of your family will need a separate appointment. Because the nurse will need to check the latest recommended travel advice for the specific country or countries you are visiting, this may take some time.
Please note that many travel vaccines are not provided by the NHS and there is a charge for them. Malaria prevention medication is also not provided by the NHS and you will have to pay for both the prescription from the surgery, and also for the medicine from the pharmacist.
Please note that the Yellow Fever vaccination is a specialist service (not available on the NHS) and is not currently available at Boundary Court Surgery.
