Ripon Hospital is a Community Hospital staffed by a team of nurses. The medical care is provided by doctors from all the practices in Ripon. The Hospital facilities include an in-patient ward, a palliative care unit, an out-patient department with clinics by consultants from Harrogate District Hospital, a Minor Injuries Unit, physiotherapy and an x-ray and ultrasound department.
The Minor Injuries Unit is open from 8.00am to 6.00pm every day and is staffed by a nurse practitioner specialist in Minor Injuries.
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 routinely stock items. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow sufficient time for 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 travel vaccination is not included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore this is a chargeable service.

When you quit smoking, it reduces your risk of illness, disability or death caused by cancer, heart or lung disease. It will protect the health of the people around you by reducing their exposure to secondhand smoke. It will also save you money - the average smoker saves £150 a month when they quit.
If you are pregnant, stopping smoking is even more important. The risks of smoking during pregnancy are serious, from premature delivery to increased risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and sudden infant death.
