Our Clinics/Services


Contraception

Comprehensive confidential advice is available during surgery hours. Please make an appointment with your doctor or the nurse to discuss contraception. Emergency contraception is prescribed when appropriate. You need to seek advice within 72 hours.


Cervical Smears

Smear tests are carried out by either the doctors or the nursing staff. Please inform the reception staff when booking your appointment so that extra time can be allowed in surgery. Our policy is to test every woman aged 25 - 49 years every three years and women aged 50 - 64 years every five years (unless the cytologist/consultant recommends repeating the smear more often). It may also be appropriate for women outside this age group. If you are not sure please ask.


Minor Surgery

All our doctors perform minor surgery, avoiding the need for you to go to hospital. If the doctor recommends this sort of treatment arrangements will be made at the surgery.


Flu And Pneumonia Vaccinations

In accordance with the Department of Health guideline we recommend an influenza and pneumonia vaccination for patients aged 65 years and over; those with chronic heart, lung or kidney disease; diabetics and residents of nursing/rest homes. The "Flu" vaccination is available in October. Pneumonia is available at any time, please ask at reception.


Child And Adult Vaccinations

It is important that you keep up to date with tetanus and polio vaccinations. If you are not sure whether you or your child is currently protected please contact a member of staff who will be happy to advise you.


Travel Immunisations

Please make an appointment at least three months in advance of your holiday to ensure adequate cover. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations that are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is held at reception.


Diabetes Clinic

All diabetic patients are encouraged to attend this clinic regularly where they can be seen by one of our nursing team in conjunction with Dr Seehra. Help and advice is also available between clinic appointments.


Asthma Clinic

Patients are seen by our specially trained practice nurses and at intervals agreed with their usual doctor. The aim of the clinic is to monitor and offer advice on prevention strategies, medication and inhaler techniques.


Non-NHS Services

Certain services provided by your doctor are not covered by the NHS and you will be asked to pay a fee. Examples include pre-employment medicals, private medicals, insurance claims, private certificates, fitness to drive medicals, HGV/PSV medicals.

 

Sickness Certificates

 

If you are absent from work due to illness for less than seven days you need to obtain a form SC2. If, after seven days, you are still unwell you will need to see a doctor who may then issue a medical certificate. Department of Social Security guidance states that doctors are not required to issue statements of incapacity for work for periods lasting seven days (including a Sunday) or less, or for the first seven days of a longer spell. However, your doctor may consider issuing a private certificate for which a fee is payable. We do not consider that sick certification requires an urgent appointment.

 

Unused Medicines

 

Please do not store unused medicines etc but return them to the chemist for safe disposal. We cannot accept them into the surgery.
