Travel Vaccinations - Covid-19 update 24/05/2021
We are aware that plans for travel are starting to begin again and that this will mean some of our patients may want to discuss travel vaccines. At present this service remains suspended, with the priority currently being delivery and completion of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
As we begin to reintroduce services, the way we manage our travel will be changing. All patients requesting travel vaccines will need to complete a full eConsult (click here). There will be no capacity for us to arrange last minute appointments for vaccinations so please ensure you have factored this in before booking any travel abroad.
Please note - The above eConsult link is for Travel Vaccinations ONLY. Any other requests should be made by calling the surgery. Any non travel vaccine requests submitted via the link will not be processed.
Death Certificates - Information for Relatives
Losing a loved one can be a very difficult time. We aim to support you through this process as much as we can here at North Cardiff Medical Centre.
It can take some time to process and complete a death certificate following a death. A death certificate is a legal document and can only be completed by a doctor who has met the deceased or in discussion with a coroner. Not all doctors work full-time and sometimes the necessary doctor is not immediately available. If the certificate needs to be discussed with the coroner this process can sometimes take a few days. The surgery will ensure your death certificate is available as soon as possible but it is important that you are aware that is may take up to 5 working days. We will inform you when the certificate has been completed and emailed direct to the registrar.
F.E.A.S.T - Families Empowered And Supporting Treatment for Eating Disorders
They are a global community of parents, and those who support parents. They know what it is to have a precious son or daughter develop an eating disorder. They have known the worry, the fear, the frustration. Many of us have seen our loved ones go from terribly unwell to robustly healthy. Some among us are supporting longtime sufferers who have not reached full recovery. And some of us have lost our beloved children to their illnesses, through permanent estrangement or death.
This community knows the hope and the tragedy of these dangerous brain disorders. We also know the heroic power of families: parents and siblings and sufferers and recovered people. We know the power of care giving, of loving support, of skilled clinicians, and of applying the emerging science to improve outcomes.
F.E.A.S.T. started back in 2007, formally, when we became a recognized nonprofit. Our volunteers and our board of directors formed originally from an online community of parents around the world connected by our common experience of loving and supporting sons and daughters who have suffered from eating disorders, and their siblings.
