The following clinics are run throughout the week, an appointment can be made through the practice reception
You can, of course, obtain advice from your doctor or the practice nurse on any matter that has a bearing on your health, including, for example, smoking, obesity, alcohol, exercise & work.
Registered patients aged between 16 – 75 who have not been seen by a member of the Practice clinical team within the last 3 years have the right to request an appointment.
Registered patients aged over 75 who have not been seen by a member of the practice clinical team within the last 12 months have the right to request an appointment, or, if confined to the house, to request a home visit.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel questionnaire available below or from the practice, so that the practice nurse can determine what vaccinations are required and provide you with a prescription if necessary.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
If vaccinations are required, it is important that you complete a travel form as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Your practice nurse 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.
To help us provide the correct advice, please print out and complete the enclosed form before handing it in to the surgery. A form needs to be completed for each member of the family who is travelling.
