Appointment times with the nurses vary. Please enquire at reception. It is helpful if we know the reason for the appointment so that the appropriate amount of time can be allocated.
The Practice Nurse is available for blood tests, blood pressure checks, Diabetic, Asthma & Coronary Heart Disease reviews, cervical smear tests, ear syringing, child vaccinations, dressings & travel advice.
If you are not able to get to the surgery, District Nurses will carry out treatment within your own home environment.
They are involved in ante-natal and post-natal care, offering support and education, helping mothers and their partners prepare for parenthood.
Ante-natal clinics are held every Monday afternoon between 2.00pm and 4.00pm at both our surgery sites. Please note that the first ante-natal appointment attendance requires a time longer than an average consultation, so a special appointment must be made.
Post-natal checks are carried out by one of our female doctors at the end of morning surgery, by appointment.
Counselling is available on Tuesday mornings and Tuesday afternoons. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or emotional difficulties in response to loss, relationships, work, health or other life events, your doctor can refer you.
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.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
It is important to make the 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.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or at our reception or on the HMRC website.
For any illness lasting longer than seven days you will need to see the doctor for him/her to issue a sickness certificate (F.med3) and for any subsequent renewal of the certificate. If your employer insists on a sickness certificate for 7 days or less a charge will be levied.
