Please make an appointment for the weekly clinic.
This is normally given at school but if this is missed for any reason then please let us know and our practice nurses should be able to arrange for it to be given at the surgery.
Our nurses will be happy to discuss your vaccination requirements and arrange a schedule for your vaccinations. You should let us know at least 6 weeks prior to your departure so that we have sufficient time to arrange your schedule as in many cases multiple doses are required.There is a questionnaire that we will ask you to complete before any discusions can take place. If you are travelling'off the beaten track' or to an area with complex vaccination requirments, we may recommend that you seek guidance from a specialist travel clinic. In these cases we will let you know when we receive the completed questionnaire.
You should be aware that not all travel vaccinations are available free on the NHS. Our nurses will discuss any costs with you when agreeing your schedule. A leaflet giving details of our current charges is available from reception.
In order to maintain social distancing, Flu jabs are strictly by appointment only this year. Please wear a face covering when attending the Surgery.
You should have a FREE NHS flu vaccine if you are:
Or have a long term condition such as:
This list of conditions isn't definitive. It is always an issue of clinical judgement. Your GP can assess you to take into account the risk of flu making any underlying illness you may have worse, as well as your risk of serious illness from flu itself.
If you have a child over 6 months of age who has one of the conditions listed above they should have a flu vaccination.
The children being offered the vaccine this year, are:
Children aged two and three years will be given the vaccination at their general practice usually by the practice nurse. Nearly all eligible children in reception year and school years 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 throughout England will be offered the flu vaccine in school. For most children, the vaccine will be given as a spray in each nostril. This is a very quick and painless procedure.
Our nursing team , Di Finch, Liz Towlson , Louise Walters, Laura Dudley and Cath Immins hold sessions every day. They are supported by Alison Hatton, our Healthcare Assistant
Di and Liz are fully qualified Nurse Practitioners. This means that as well as looking after their own patients on a day –to- day basis, they are available as an alternative to the GP’s for most urgent same day appointments.
As well as general nursing and ongoing patient monitoring tasks, the nurses are available to give health advice, undertake health checks, take cervical smear tests and to arrange routine and travel injections.
They also complete regular monitoring checks for those patients with ongoing, long term conditions such as diabetes, heart and respiratory disease.
When booking an appointment to see our practice nurses, the receptionist will ask what the appointment is for. This to to ensure that you are allocated sufficient time for your appointment.
We are constantly reviewing the way in which our nurse’s work and we envisage that the range of services that they are able to offer will continue to develop. We would be interested to hear your views on how our nursing services should be shaped for the future.
You can book a health check with our practice nurses. This is a free check on your basic health and lifestyle and takes about 20 minutes.
Please bring a sample of urine with you so that this can be tested as part of the check. Bottles are available from reception, where you should make the appointment for your check. If you are new to the practice, or have not seen the doctor during the last 3 years, you are particularly invited to take advantage of this free check on your health.
Contraceptive advice and services (including emergency contraception) are available from your doctor or nurse in normal surgery time.
Cervical cytology screening tests are carried out in normal surgery hours by the practice nurses or a doctor, but please make a separate appointment for this to be done.
All women are recommended to have a smear test every three years from the age of 25 up to 49, and every five years between the ages of 50 and 64. If you have had a hysterectomy or have never been sexually active then you usually won’t need to have any further smear tests but please discuss this with the nurse or doctor if you are in any doubt. You are reminded by letter when your smear test is due.
If you think you are pregnant, please make an appointment during normal surgery time to see the doctor.
Regular Antenatal clinics are held with our midwife. Patients can also be seen by a GP during normal surgery times by prior appointment.
Relaxation classes are held at the care centre; please ask your midwife for details. The doctors carry out postnatal examinations by prior appointment along with baby’s six-week check.
The district nursing team works alongside the doctors to provide skilled nursing care within your home. Help and advice on a variety of caring problems are offered, for example continence problems. There are good working relationships with other services such as hospitals, social services, Macmillan nurses and the local voluntary organisations.
The district nursing team can be contacted on 0300 0830100
Dr Kothari carries out some small surgical procedures at the surgery. This service may avoid you having to wait for hospital treatment. Please ask for details.
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.Vaccines may have to be ordered as not all are stock vaccines. 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.
