Child Health – baby checks and developmental assessments are carried out in conjunction with the services offered by the Health Visitors.
Antenatal Care – maternity care is shared between the GPs, the Community Midwives and sometimes the obstetric team at the hospital. If you are planning to become pregnant, or find yourself pregnant, please see your GP as soon as possible.
Emergency Contraception – advice and treatment where appropriate
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.
Much of the travel immunisations are not NHS funded and costs and enclosed in the attached literature.
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.
Patients are asked to ensure that they contact the surgery to obtain results of any tests that are undertaken.
Results are available by telephoning the surgery after 12:00pm.
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.

Podiatry (also known as chiropody) is the diagnosis and treatment by podiatrists (chiropodists) of diseases and other disorders of the feet. Podiatrists are highly skilled health professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
A podiatrist can treat or advise you on:
When do I need to see a podiatrist?
If your feet hurt, something is wrong. In this case we recommend that you visit a podiatrist, who will advise you on the best course of treatment. You can also prevent foot problems before they occur by visiting a local podiatrist for advice on how to keep your feet healthy and in top condition. (See “How to contact a podiatrist” section below). We recommend that you have a regular foot health check with your Podiatrist.
Why do I need to see a podiatrist?
Podiatrists are highly trained professionals registered by the Health Professionals Council (HPC) that have trained solely in the area of the foot and lower limb for several years. In order to become an HPC registered practitioner a podiatrist will have undertaken and passed a full time degree in podiatry at one of thirteen schools of podiatry within the UK or will have met stringent entrance criteria set by the HPC.
Health Professionals Council (HPC)
The HPC is an UK-wide regulatory body, which regulates 13 health professions. Since July 2005, only those chiropodists and podiatrists who have satisfied the criteria for registration with the HPC can call themselves a chiropodist and podiatrist. To use these titles when not on the register is an offence. All members of the Society that are practising chiropodists and podiatrists are members of the HPC.
How do I contact a podiatrist?
To find a local HPC registered podiatrist, you can either approach your GP practice for information on an NHS referral or if you decide to seek a private podiatrist you could use the following link on the Society’s website http://www.feetforlife.org/ cgi-site/chiropodist.cgi or look at the front of the chiropodists and podiatrists section in Yellow Pages for The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists listing.
