Telephone Advice Sometimes a telephone call will avoid the need for a consultation. If you wish to speak to a doctor, please ask the receptionist to request that the doctor calls you back. It would be helpful if you could indicate the degree of urgency.
Cancelling your Appointment If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.
By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.
Antenatal ClinicThis is run by the community midwife, please make appointments at the Health Centre.
Minor Surgery Clinics A range of minor operations can be performed under local anaesthetic. Please discuss this with the doctor who will arrange an appointment.

Child developmental checks are carried out by either the Health Visitor or doctor and will be arranged by appointment. You will be invited to bring your baby and pre school child for immunisations with the Practice Nurse.

Well Woman ClinicYou are welcome to attend for routine check ups including cervical smears and breast examination. Advice is available on the menopause and other women’s problems. This service is usually provided through our practice nurse.

Emergency ContraceptionFor emergency contraception please make an appointment as soon as possible to see the doctor.
Diabetic, asthma, heart disease clinics These are run by our practice nurse and are by invitation or on request.
Influenza vaccinations All patients targeted for flu vaccinations will be notified annually in October. Currently this comprises patients over 65, patients with a chronic illness and carers.
If you are over 65 and have never had a pneumovax vaccination please call the surgery.
Smoking Help and advice on stopping smoking is available from the doctors and the health visitor.
Foreign Travel Advice for foreign travel including immunisations is available. Please make an appointment in plenty of time before you are due to travel with our practice nurse. There may be a charge for some items, which are not covered by the NHS.
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

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
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.
