It is with regret that we are informing you that Dr Mercer has decided to resign as a Partner and from Lawn Medical Centre from Easter of this year. We would like to reassure you that you will continue to receive the highest quality of care from our Doctors and Nurses and we hope to have another GP in place by April. We are sure you will want to join us in thanking Dr Mercer for his many years of service, and wish him all the best for the future as he takes time to pursue his other interests
The doctors hold a contract with NHS England to provide a full range of general medical services including acute treatment, chronic disease management, antenatal care and child health and minor surgery.
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.
Not all travel vaccinations are provided on the NHS. If you need the following vaccinations you will need to obtain them elsewhere, Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis, Tickborne Encephalitis & BCG
