In addition to routine GP consultations the practice offers a range of special clinics and healthcare services:
Antenatal Clinic Main Surgery Friday 09:00 – 12:45
Patients are seen by the midwife at the clinic by appointment and also by the doctors during surgery hours.
Well Baby Clinic - Main Surgery Monday 13:30 – 14:30
The baby clinics are run by a practice nurse who gives childhood immunisations. A doctor and health visitor are available for child developmental checks and to discuss other problems.
Contraceptive care, including implants and coil insertions, is provided by the doctors during surgery hours. Our practice nurses provide advice and appointments for repeat prescriptions of contraceptive pills and also give depot contraceptive injections.
Minor surgical procedures are carried out by appointment and the doctors will be happy to advise you on this. We also provide a cryotherpay service on a monthly basis.
An in-house clinic is available for skin problems but only on recommendation of a doctor.
Counselling is available at the surgery. Please ask your doctor for an appointment.
Travel Immunisations / Vaccinations
Please make an appointment at least 4 weeks in advance of your holiday to ensure adequate cover. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is held at reception. We are a recognised centre for Yellow Fever immunisation. Please complete the online travel questionnaire prior to your appointment or ask for this at reception.
Any aspect of care, including contraception, menopause management, pre-conception, morning-after-pill, cervical smears, is provided during surgery hours.
Vaccinations and immunisations, including childhood vaccinations and immunisations, are available.
An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and rest homes. Please contact the reception staff in September to make an appointment.
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.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
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.
