Harrogate District Hospital provides a range of outpatient services here at Alwoodley Medical Centre. Patients are able to choose to access services here, on referral from their GP, saving time and avoiding the potential inconvenience of a trip to hospital. You will still receive the same high quality, professional care as you would in hospital because it is the same members of staff providing the service. Services include radiology, audiology and urology. More information may be found on their web page.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment 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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
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.
Please note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection, and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
We will no longer accept urine samples from 18 September 2017 where you believe you may have an infection. You will need to make an appointment to speak with a GP initially and any urine sample where an infection may be present needs to be presented to the GP and not to the Receptionists.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
