PLEASE NOTE THE SURGERY WILL BE CLOSED FOR STAFF TRAINING ON WEDNESDAY 9 JUNE FROM 1PM. WE WILL REOPEN ON THURSDAY 10 JUNE AT 8AM
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how we contact you will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus. Face to face appointments are available, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what is most appropriate for you and to keep staff and patients safe.
Please DO NOT come to the surgery unless you have an appointment
Vaccine Scam Alert
We are aware some people are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the covid vaccine. In some cases people are asked to press a number on their keypad or send a text message to confirm they would like the vaccine. Doing so is likey to result in a charge to the phone bill. In other cases callers are offered the vaccine for a fee and asked for bank details. Please take care.
In addition to GP consultations the practice adheres to the General Medical Services Contract for the provision of healthcare services:
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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
We do not encourage private patients. However, some services fall outside of the NHS and for these a charge may be made. This includes BUPA, PPP forms, private medical certificates and prescriptions, medicals for HGV and other activities, travel insurance claims forms etc.
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.
Your own Medical Notes may be viewed after obtaining Doctor’s permission. Photocopies will be charged for.
