We are introducing a new initiative to help people find the most appropriate source of help when they book an appointment. Please see our 'Care Navigation' page on the appointments link for more details.
Some clinics and services are provided at the surgery by our own doctors and nurses. Other services are provided by community healthcare staff. The community healthcare staff includes district/community nurses, health visitors, midwives, chiropodists, physiotherapists and counsellors.
The midwife holds booking clinics at the surgery on a Wednesday for your 1st appointment only, further appointments will be at The Meadows Children’s Centre. We share antenatal care with The Jessop Wing and will arrange an appointment for you with them.
Baby clinics are held on a Thursday morning with the practice nurse. This clinic is for you baby’s 2nd and 3rd baby vaccinations and also for their MMR and Menitorix when they are 12 and 13 months old. The 1st baby vaccination will be given by the GP or the nurse when you baby has their 8 week medical.
When your child is born or you register with us we/child health services will advise you by letter of their vaccination dates. Please register your baby with the practice as soon as possible so that we can arrange the apporpriate appointments and vaccinations.
Both the practice nurses and doctors are happy to discuss and provide all methods of contraception, and give advice about starting a family. Coils and implants are fitted at the surgery, please ask at reception for more information - We politely request that you do not bring children with you to these appointments.
We run a minor operations clinic one afternoon a week. If you think you need to be seen in this clinic, please make an appointment to see a doctor to discuss referral. We politely request that you do not bring children to your Minor Operation appointment.
The practice nurse can give you advice on all aspects of women’s health and also carry out cervical smears. Please contact reception for an appointment.
Practice Nurses provide advice about immunisations and avoiding tropical illnesses. Please be aware that vaccinations are required at least 8 weeks before you travel. If travel is less than 8 weeks away we will be unable to offer you this service.
You will need to fill a Travel Vaccination form in and hand it in at reception and you will be contacted with advice or an appointment. You can download the form below or pick up from reception.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
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.
It may take several days for us to complete any forms, you will therefore be asked to collect them in 7 days.
