AS OF MONDAY 3RD JULY 2017 WE WELCOME OUR NEW NURSE PRACTITIONER TO THE TEAM. PLEASE SEE THE APPOINTMENTS TAB FOR FURTHER INFORMATION. Please note:The Doctors have instructed our Reception staff to ask all patients why they are coming in for an appointment in order to direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional.
Missed appointments during February, March & April 2017: 119 DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENTS AND 163 NURSES'S APPOINTMENTS that's a total of 282 appointments which were wasted due to people not turning up to booked appointments.
Local NHS changes to how we prescribe over the counter medications for short term illness and minor ailments: please ask your local pharmacist before making an appointment; buy over-the-counter medicines for minor problems and dont forget you can call NHS 111 for health advice 24 hours a day.
In addition to general medical consultations we are pleased to be able to provide specialist clinics and services covering the following areas:
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Some services provided fall outside the scope of the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
