We are pleased to be able to offer the following services by appointment:
Friday mornings. New pregnancies for first antenatal booking is a 1hour appointment. Antenatal follo-up checks are 20 minute appointments.
All new babies are invited for regular check-ups from 8 weeks old. You will receive an invite from the childhood immunisations team. Contact the surgery when you receive the invitation.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday by appointment with the trainers. The health trainer, Miss Louise Pickard, will provide one-to-one advice and support on weight management, diet advice and healthy lifestyle. Louise is able to refer and signpost you to a wide range of services such as weightwatchers, slimming world, smoking cessation, exercise/gym and swimming.
We have specialist pain management clinics run by a specialist GP, Dr Tahir Mohammed on Mondays. Clinicians at the practice can directly refer you into this clinic.
The clinics are run by the practice nurse and clinician who is qualified in this field. We offer regular review of treatment and instruction in inhaler use and self-help.
Reminders for these tests are sent to patients' homes directly from the Cancer screening team. Upon receipt, please telephone and make an appointment with the practice nurse.
Referral is by the doctor. An appointment will be sent directly to the patient by the counsellor. Counselling is a form of therapy to help you work through a wide range of personal and family difficulties. Demand for this service is high and the waiting list could extend to several weeks. If you are unable to keep your appointment it is imperative that you let us know as soon as possible so that the slot can be given to another patient.
These clinics are run by the practice nurse who is qualified in this field, a pharmacist prescriber with special interest in Diabetes and a GP. All diabetics on our register are invited for annual checks. Regular review of diabetic control is encouraged, as good control of diabetes helps avoid long-term complications.
A full range of services is offered during normal surgery appointments; please ask your doctor or practice nurse for advice. Emergency contraception is available after discussion with a doctor.
All new patients joining our practice are invited to have a health check. If you are aged between 16 and 74 years and have not been seen by a GP within the last three years then please make an appointment for a general health check with our practice nurse or health care assistant. Patients over 75 who have not attended in the last 12 months should make an appointment for a health check.
You can book to see our experienced nursing team for travel health advice and vaccinations. We do ask patients to complete a travel health questionnaire, so the nurse can review your records and see if any travel vaccinations are required or not. Please feel free to speak to reception staff.
We offer special health checks for patients over 75 years. Please contact the receptionist to book with the nurse.
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.
