In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a range of specialist clinics and healthcare services:
Regular monitoring for the following long-term conditions, helping you to understand your condition and stay as healthy as possible:
Health Check – offered to all new patients when joining the practice; we suggest you attend for review at least 3 yearly, even if you feel well.
Heart Disease Prevention – heart disease is the commonest cause of death in the UK. People found to have a higher risk for developing heart disease - appropriate action (quit smoking, BP control, exercise, low fat diet, cholesterol reduction) can reduce risk helping prevent both heart disease and stroke.
Giving up Smoking? – Advice, help and support available including progress review.
Cervical Smears – screening for early cell changes from the age of 25 to 64 at 3 yearly (25-49); at 5 yearly intervals (50-64).
Contraception/Family Planning Service We provide all recommended forms of birth control, (except coil-fitting). Couples planning to start a family are encouraged to attend for a check-up and advice.
Annual Flu Vaccination
Travel Advice/ Immunisation (based on World Health Guidelines for travellers).
Minor Surgery – including joint injections, wart freezing and the removal of small skin cysts.
Please note, If you are not a regular user of our service, the practice offers 3 year consultations for patients aged 16 and 74 years. If you are 75 years or over and have not seen one of our clinicians for a year, you can request an annual consultation.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
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.
