Our Travel Information
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.

The Surgery Shuttle – ‘The Gift of a Lift’
For patients over the age of 55 and who have either poor mobility and/or transport difficulties. The Measham Medical Unit Shuttle Bus offers a free and flexible service to any patient who needs the gift of a lift in order to get down to the surgery.
If you are over the age of 55 and feel you fit the criteria, please feel free to call the surgery and enquire about the service.
On the 22nd February 2010 Measham Medical Unit launched its new patient transport service.
A generous donation from The Barbara Boardman-Weston Charitable Fund, has kindly purchased and fully funded a new 15 seat minibus.
Mrs Boardman-Weston lived locally and was a patient at the surgery for many years. It was her wish that better facilities were made available to our elderly people when visiting the Unit. When approached by Mrs Boardman-Weston’s family, doctors and staff at the surgery met and decided that patient transportation was a problem for many patients.
Some of our patients live in villages with little or no direct public transport to Measham and often rely on the good will of family and friends.
As a result of this generous donation, we have been fortunate to purchase a new 15 seat minibus, with full adaptation to allow for patients who use wheelchairs or walking aids. It has a fully automatic tail-lift together with easy access low steps and handrails to help patients that may have problems accessing normal cars and buses.
The service has been fully funded by The Charitable Trust and as a result there will be no charge to our patients. The service is available for patients over 55 years of age who have a mobility or transportation difficulties.
The minibus can be booked by telephone at the time of making your appointment or in person with our reception staff.
On behalf of The Boardman-Weston family and all our staff at Measham Medical Unit we hope ‘THE GIFT OF A LIFT’ will be a great success and benefit to our elderly patients.
