Hampton Wick Surgery has a vibrant Patient Participation Group (PPG). The PPG meet on a monthly basis and produce our seasonal Practice Newsletter. By working in partnership with us, the PPG help to make services more user-friendly and improve patient experience. By identifying issues that are important to patients and by responding to any new initiatives, we hope we can improve and influence the way in which services are planned and delivered, and increase patients' confidence in the healthcare provided.

After having your baby, we would like you and baby to book a 30 minute post-natal appointment with a doctor to coincide with 8 weeks after the birth date. During this visit, you will have the opportunity to discuss any issues you might be experiencing and to give your baby their first set of immunisations in order to protect them from disease.
It is of the utmost importance that children are kept up to date with the recommended vaccinations to protect them and other against disease.
If your child has not received all of the recommended immunisations, please call the surgery to book an appointment with our Practice Nurse or Health Visitor (based at Teddington Clinic).
Further information on the childhood immunisation programme can be found ob the NHS Vaccinations page.
Hampton Wick Surgery is a registered travel clinic and Yellow Fever Centre. We provide a comprehensive travel vaccination service.
If you would like to use our travel vaccinations service, please select the link below and complete the Travel Vaccination request form. You can either complete it and email it to the practice (firstname.lastname@example.org) or you can print it off, complete and return to the practice.
NB: Please request your travel vaccinations at least 6 WEEKS before travelling, preferably as soon as you have booked your travel arrangements.Travel Vaccination Form
Our staff will check the world health organisation current recommendations to find out what vaccinations may be needed to protect you during your trip. We will contact you within 7 working days to book an appointment, and to give you details of the recommended vaccines and the associated cost. Please make sure you provide full information of all travel destinations.
Please Note: Some vaccinations must be given 4 weeks prior to travel in order for them to be effective so we ask that you complete the travel request form at least 6 weeks prior to your travels. This is so we can order and administer the vaccines in time to ensure you are protected.
Some travel vaccinations are not provided as part of NHS services and you will be required to pay directly for the cost for some vaccines. Read the Practice Price List.
Patients planning to travel can also visit http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk for information on vaccinations.
The practice is able to provide private services for medical assessments and medical reports, as well as a 'To Whom it May Concern' letter service for patients, their insurance companies and employers. There is a charge for all of these services as they do not fall within NHS treatment. If you require this service, please see 'Practice Price List' on the bottom of this page or contact reception for more information.
Please note: Hampton Wick Surgery will never disclose any information about you to a third party, without your FULL written consent.
The practice is hoping to become one of the UK's first 'dementia friendly' practices. More information coming soon.
