Our nurses run clinics morning and afternoon. They carry out blood pressure measurement, immunisations for children and travel, ear syringing, dressings and a host of other services. The receptionist will provide details if required.
For more information on immunisations visit http://www.immunisation.nhs.uk/.
The HCA takes routine blood samples for testing and does blood pressure measurements at the Phlebotomy clinic every morning.
The samples are sent to the hospital laboratory at 12.30 and 16.00 each day and so the appointments will be made to coincide with those collections.
You may book appointments with the phlebotomist at reception over the phone, in person or online by registering for Patient Access.
The doctors carry out antenatal checks during normal surgeries. The midwife holds a weekly Friday clinic. Please ask at reception for details.
Postnatal checks are done at 8 weeks. An appointment can be made at reception.
Consult the doctor within normal surgery appointments.
You may not know that you have it. You don't have to be examined and the test is simple, painless, totally voluntary. It is available to anyone who is a patient of the practice, sexually active and under 25 years old.
The test is available now in the practice so ask the receptionist, doctor or nurse for a testing kit and they will tell you what to do.
If you want to know more about chlamydia or the test go to www.chlamydiascreening.nhs.uk/index.htm or http://www.sayyestothetest.com/
This clinic usually runs once a month on the first Friday between 13.00 and 15.00. Please speak to the Health Visitor for more information.
Patients with long-term conditions, such as, diabetes or asthma, will be invited to the surgery for an annual review in the month of their birthday. Patients with multiple conditions will be seen once for everything rather than having to come in several times, often repeating the same tests. It's a kind of human MOT!
Smear tests are carried out by the Practice Nurse by appointment.
If you want help or advice in giving up smoking, make an appointment with the Practice Nurse or Phlebotomist.
Both doctors carry out minor surgical procedures at the practice. Please ask the doctor.
Patients between the ages of 40 and 74 who have no diagnosed long standing conditions will be invited for a free NHS health check. These checks are aimed at identifying potential risks early and with the advice of the clinical team, help improve your chances of living a healthier life. For more information follow this link www.nhs.uk/healthcheck or ring the NHS Health Check helpline on 0845 850 9850.
Patients over 75 years may request an assessment once a year while patients who are over 16 years and up to 74 years may arrange a three–year check with the Practice Nurse. See also our information about Health Checks above.
Please see our Travel Health page for more details.
When joining the practice you may be asked to book an appointment with the Practice Nurse to review and plan your healthcare.
Worldwide shortage of Hep A vaccine
There is a worldwide shortage of Hepatitis A vaccine and we have minimal amounts in stock for special risk patients who will take priority. If you need the vaccine for overseas visits, please see your local travel clinics.
Global shortage of Hep B vaccine
There is a global shortage of Hepatitis B vaccine and ordering restrictions are in place for GP Practices. The shortage of hepatitis B vaccine is likely to continue until early 2018. Travellers should go to: https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/latest-news for more advice.
Children’s combined vaccines are not affected.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to visit a travel clinic such as Boots, Frosts Pharmacy or Superdrug for immunisations and advice. We do not provide private travel services. We do offer those vaccinations that are provided free to NHS patients but will no longer be providing comprehensive advice and recommendations.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Whether you plan a last minute holiday or have one planned two years ahead, it is worth considering vaccinations and/or malaria tablets that may be recommended for your destination.
Most vaccines take 3 - 4 weeks to become effective so we ask you to book in for travel advice and vaccinations 6 - 8 weeks before departure.
The following travel vaccinations are usually available free on the NHS:
These vaccines are usually free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.
If fever develops during or after a trip, seek competent medical help immediately.

There is much confusing information about NHS services for patients who are classed as overseas visitors.
The link below will take you to a Department of Health page where there is more information about the eligibility of e.g. a UK state pensioner living overseas, former UK residents working overseas, visitors to the UK and others coming to the UK to study.
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.
