The Practice operates a number of clinics/appointments offering a wide variety of specialist services staffed by a skill mix of various professionals to address your particular needs.
The particular Clinics/appointments available are listed below:-
Ask at reception for details.
The Practice operates Choose and Book which is a national electronic referral service giving patients a choice of place, date and time for their first outpatient appointment in a hospital or clinic providing they have appointments available.
The hospital you choose may be anywhere in England or you may decide to choose a local or some private hospitals.
It is important to understand that the completion of forms/reports by doctors is NOT NHS work i.e. it is private work undertaken by your GP in their own time and not their usual surgery NHS time. Please try to be patient.
NHS work does and must always take priority over private work. Forms or reports such as private medical insurance claims, holiday cancellations, sickness or accident reports etc should be brought or sent to the surgery.
The report/forms will be given to the doctor for completion. There will be a charge for this work payable in advance. Insurance forms are reports compiled from your medical records for purposes such as life assurance, mortgages etc. These forms may appear to take some time to complete. Delays can occur if a doctor is on holiday or the Practice is experiencing a busy period.. Please be patient.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Patients not eligible for N.H.S. services but who require the use of the surgery facilities will be asked to pay for these services. An estimate of the minimum cost can be made available on request.
Please note that fees will be payable on completion of services. However an advance fee will be payable before the consultation The Practice does not operate a credit card system and therefore we cannot accept payment by credit/debit cards or cheque.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less.
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. Please enquire at reception.
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.

Upper Back Pain
