A variety of clinics are run by the practice. Please ask at reception for more details.
The above clinics are available at the practice by appointment, please ask at reception for more details.
The antenatal clinic is led by the midwife and the doctor is available for consultation when necessary. Care is usually shared with the hospital. You can now access the midwifery service without a referral from the GP, simply contact on the maternity access number: 01743 261085 (leave your name and number)
The health visitor holds a regular clinic for weighing and general advice on any problems, they can be contacted on 0333 358 3328.
6-8 week checks (for babies) are held at the surgery with the GP and our baby immunisation clinic is by appointment with the nurse. (This is a crucial appointment as your baby will not be able to receive their first immunisations without this check).
We offer a complete family planning service including advice on contraception; this is run by our Well Woman nurse by appointment only.
These are available for Insurance HGV and pre-employment purposes. A fee is charged based on the recommended published sale from the BMA. Please ask at reception.
A minor surgery clinic is run by Dr Davies and Dr Pitchika, this is for the removal of "lumps and bumps". Please discuss with your doctor who will refer you to this clinic if appropriate.
The practice would like to take this opportunity to confirm the details of how the appointment system works, and the various appointment types. As there are many appointment types detailed below, this also is to explain why the reception staff have been trained to ask questions regarding the reasons for the appointment, so that they can ensure that the correct appointment can be booked, or they can direct the patients to the most appropriate service:
These clinical staff perform a wide range of appointments. Examples include: Blood Pressure measures, Blood tests, Dressings, Taking ECGs (when requested by the GPs) etc. They also can give flu vaccinations to patients who have had a flu vaccine before. These appointments can be booked in advance with some urgent appointments available on the day also.
Our Nurses perform a wide range of appointments for various clinical areas i.e.: Diabetes reviews, Asthma reviews, Complex dressings, Smears, Childhood Immunisations, Travel Immunisations, Various other treatments given via injection (including flu vaccinations). These appointments can be booked in advance, also with some urgent appointments available on the day.
Our ANPs are able to see many patients with complex care needs and can see many clinical conditions that would also be seen by a GP. These appointments can be booked in advance and on the day.
The practice has a Pharmacist, who can conduct medication reviews, COPD and Asthma reviews, and some clinical conditions that would be seen by a GP. These appointments can be booked in advance.
Routine appointments: These appointments are for non-urgent clinical issues that cannot be dealt with by any of the above clinical staff. These can be booked in advance. There is usually a 2 - 3 week wait for these appointments, and these are released during several days of the week.
Urgent care appointments: The practice offers a combination of phone calls with a GP and face to face appointments for urgent clinical needs. The appointment system was altered at the end of April 2019 in response to a review of patient need, and more urgent care appointments are now be available across the week, with more being available on the busier days. These additional appointments have been added without the loss of any routine GP appointments. These appointments are booked on the day. (Note: The telephone calls may be done at the end of a clinic and not at a specific time).
Other clinics: GPs also sometimes hold specialist clinics for clinical needs such coil fitting or minor ops. These appointments are put on when a clinic is organised with the relevant clinical staff.
PLEASE NOTE: All appointments are PRE-BOOKED ONLY. The only exception to this is ‘open’ flu clinics held on some Saturdays in the Autumn/Winter. Details are put on the website/ in the practice.
Please allow at least six weeks to get your vaccinations done in time.
Log onto the travel website www.masta.org to check out what's recommended for your destination. Bring this information along with you to a DOUBLE appointment with one of the practice nurses.
There is some further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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)
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 on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
For more information see the DirectGov website (where this information was sourced)
