The following clinics are by invitation from the nurses and doctors
Our aim is to keep our patients fit and healthy. Prevention is far better than cure and many serious conditions can be prevented by a healthy life style. Appointments for the following clinics can be made at reception
The practice provides a full immunisation service and runs child developmental clinics along with the health visitor by appointment only:
The Primary Care Trust will automatically send an appointment for your child to attend the child immunisation clinic. Please always bring with you, your childs Red Record Book. If your child cannot attend their appointment, please let the surgery know, as well as the telephone number on your letter, as soon as possible, so that the cancellation may be offered to another patient.
The doctors and nurses provide advice on family planning, including oral contraception, depot (injectable), implants, coils, contraceptive preparations and the fitting and checking of caps.
These are carried out by our specially trained practice nurses. You will receive written notification of your smear result, usually within 6 weeks of the test.
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.
