In addition to general medical consultations we are pleased to offer a number of special clinics and services:
Patients with the following conditions will be offered annual appointments for review:
Maternity Care - all the doctors work closely with you and your midwife during pregnancy. We will respect your wishes about the kind of antenatal care and birth you would like, and do everything to make it possible.
Contraception - advice about all methods of contraception and safe sex is available from doctors and practice nurses.
Emergency Contraception - (e.g. the “morning after pill”) is a completely confidential service for people of all ages - just make an urgent appointment with your doctor or nurse.
Child Development Checks - organised by the Health Visitor Team. Tel 0845 6880248.
Immunisations - for children and adults.
General Nursing Services - dressings, swabs, ear syringing, stitch removal.
Lifestyle Advice - diet, smoking, alcohol and exercise.
Foreign Travel Advice
Minor Surgery - all the doctors are able to do certain operations in the surgery. Please see your doctor first.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to contact the surgery on 01392 211266 (option 1 for appointments) and arrange a telephone consultation with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. The practice nurse will then arrange the nessasary appointment(s) to administer any vacinations you may require.
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 8 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 are planning to travel w/c 31st August.
You should contact the practice w/c 6th July
Your telephone appointment with the practice nurse should be approx. w/c 27th July/ w/c 3rd August
Your appointment to receive any vaccinations you may need should be w/c 17th August or before.
*Please note dates above are only being used as example dates.

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.

If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
