SPLWs offer non-medical holistic support for social factors which impact health and wellbeing. Examples include isolation, financial worries, unemployment, anxiety, stress, and weight loss. SPLWs listen to people’s concerns and work with them to create a personalised care plan. The role of an SPLW is to link people to services, groups, activities, and information which may help to improve their situation

Examples include the following:

- Insurance claim forms.
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad.
- Private sick notes.
- Vaccination certificates.
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the form below, you can also collect one of these from the surgery. Once you have submitted your travel form our Practice Nurse will check if you require any travel vaccinations. If you require any vaccinations we will contact you to arrange an appointment.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
|Europe & Russia||North America|
|Central America||South America|
|Middle East||Central Asia|
|East Asia||Australasia and Pacific|
It is important to complete the form as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel – These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
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.
