In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a wide range of clinics and healthcare services:
Diabetes/Asthma/Hypertension/Chronic Heart Disease/Depression/Renal Disease.
We encourage patients with these conditions to be actively involved in their own care. We offer advice and monitoring of the disease and access to specialist services when appropriate. The practice nurses maintains registers of patients with the above conditions and patients are encouraged to make appointments to see them at regular intervals.
We offer a health “MOT” which is particularly aimed to help prevent illness. Appointments are made at reception. Please bring a specimen of urine with you. The nurse will check height, weight, blood pressure, urine and immunisation status. She will answer any questions about your health and advise you about exercise, smoking, alcohol and diet.
We have two stress counsellors and appointments are only available by referral to them by a GP. See your G.P. for details.
We like to see all our patients at least once every three years.
Both doctors and nurse are actively involved in encouraging patients to stop smoking. During consultations patients are offered the option of being referred to the Smoking Cessation Services.
The doctor or nurse can advise on the necessary vaccinations. Please make an appointment with the practice nurse for the injections to be given.
As well as the antenatal clinics, the doctors also carry out a full postnatal check six weeks after birth. Future family planning, smear, children’s development and immunisations are normally discussed at this time.
An appointment will be sent notifying the date and time of appointment for the 6-8 week check and immunisation which can also be linked with the post natal check. Appointments will then be sent for all follow up immunisations. Parents sending a representative with their child for immunisation need to send a letter of authorisation and the red book, otherwise the child will not be immunised.
We recommend that all women up to the age of 65 have regular smear tests unless advised by the doctor. If you would like the practice nurse to carry out your smear, please make an appointment with her at reception.
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.

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.
