The surgery offers sexual health appointments with both doctors and nurses. Contraceptive advice and reviews are also offered.
A midwife-run clinic is held on Thursday afternoons at the surgery, please contact reception to book an appointment.
It is recommended that children up to five years of age should be registered for Child Health Surveillance. This is a programme run by the doctor, health visitor and practice nurse and includes a baby check and immunisations.
The nurses provide general nursing care such as dressings, ear syringing, suture removal, child and adult immunisations, travel information, routine reviews of medication, cervical smears, pre-pregnancy and contraception advice.
We also provide routine NHS Health Checks (subject to qualifying criteria), and a Health Promotion programme which includes:
Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Hypertension, CKD and Epilepsy clinics and general health care advice.
Baby Immunisation clinics are held at the surgery at regular intervals. Once you have received your letter from the Health Surveillance Team you can contact the surgery to make an appointment. If you have any queries, please ask to speak to one of our nurses.
Please allow plenty of time to organise your vaccinations, some of them will need a course of treatments over a period of time. Please make an appointment with the practice nurse. There is a charge for some travel immunisations. Charges will be made for temporary residents.
District Nurses, Community Matrons, Midwifes and Health Visitors can be contacted via the surgery.
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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
For the results of tests and investigations you can ring surgery reception on 01692 403015 after 2.00pm.
Normally blood and x-ray results take seven to ten days to arrive. Once seen by the doctor, the results can be given out over the phone provided they are requested by the patient, the parent or guardian of patients under 16 or a person who has Power of Attorney / the surgery has signed permission from a named person who can request the results on their behalf.
Letters and reports following out-patient appointments normally take about fourteen days to reach the surgery. If you need to see your GP following a hospital appointment please let the receptionist know when you make an appointment so we can ensure the appropriate report is available.
