We offer annual reviews for all patients diagnosed with any of the following conditions:
Heart disease, diabetes, asthma and COPD, hypertension, strokes, epilepsy, mental health problems and cancer
Our practice nurses are trained in chronic disease management and once your condition is stable she will assume responsibility for the monitoring and routine follow up of your chronic disease. If any significant changes are revealed during this monitoring the practice nurse will refer you back to a GP. If you develop any new symptoms that concern you please make an appointment to see either the GP or the nurse.
All patients with a chronic disease will receive a letter at least once a year inviting you in for a review of your condition. Please ensure you attend these appointments as they are an important part of your care.
All ladies are advised to have regular smear tests. For those aged between 25 and 50, every three years and those aged 50 to 65, every five years. This screening is carried out by the practice nurse.
Patients requiring advice on contraception can make an appointment with a GP. Once prescribed the contraceptive pill, females can see the nurse every six months.
Flu vaccinations are offered annually to all patients over the age of 65 and those in at risk groups. Clinics run from the end of September. Please contact the surgery to make an appointment.
Antenatal clinics are run by the community midwives on a Monday morning from 09:00 to 10:30. If you become pregnant, you will be given a booking appointment at which the midwife will ask you a few questions and carry out some general health checks. You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy either at the practice or at the hospital, or both.
All new babies are invited in for regular check-ups with a GP from eight weeks old. They will also be immunised by the practice nurse.
Patients wanting to give up smoking can make an appointment with our health care assistant for support and advice.
If you require vaccinations for travel please ask reception for a travel vaccine questionnaire 6 weeks prior to your travel. The practice nurse will then call you to arrange your vaccinations.
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.
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.
