Do not delay getting help if you're worried. Trust your instincts.
Use the quick NHS coronavirus status checker to tell us about your current experience of the virus.

If your injury is not serious, you can get help from a Minor Injuries Unit (MIU), rather than going to an A&E department. Two local minor injuries units are in Ripley Hospital and Ilkeston Hospital and their opening times are between 8am - 10pm - no appointment is usually necessary. Minor injuries units can treat:

They carry out nursing duties such as dressings and injections in the patient’s own home for those unable to attend the surgery. A message can be left at reception if you wish to contact any of them.
Our Community Matron is attached to our practice.

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.
