If you are going abroad it is advisable to make an appointment with the nurse about six weeks prior to your travel date, to ensure there is enough time for you to be adequately vaccinated. Please complete a Risk Assessment for Travel form and return it to the surgery prior to your appointment. Click here to download the form. Some vaccines require two or more injections to give satisfactory cover. Please remember that not all immunisations for travel are available under the NHS, and a fee may be charged.

This is a voluntary group set up with the aim of making the voice of the patients heard by NHS Cambridgeshire, and to publicise issues of concern. The Alliance also aims to gain recognition for the residents of Chatteris and surrounding villages served by George Clare Surgery, and for equal rights with other Fenland towns as regards priority over allocation of funds etc. Open meetings are held every three months. The venues and dates for these meetings are displayed in the surgery, the library and various shops in the town.

This scheme aims to promote and organise transport for the residents of Chatteris who find public transport difficult or impossible. It provides transport for a range of journeys, mainly local, but when volunteers are available and willing, any distance can be undertaken. There is a charge for this service, which can be contacted on 07944 814156.

Members of the community who are wheelchair users and are unable to transfer from wheelchair to car seat were, until recently, unable to use this service. To deal with this problem the scheme has recently acquired a fully adapted vehicle able to transport a person whilst in their wheelchair. There is also space in the vehicle for two or three passengers. The vehicle is available for hire by anyone who has a disability or by families who have a disabled member. For further details, or to volunteer as a driver, telephone 01354 692381.
