Our nurses take a very active role in Health promotion. Amongst the services that they provide are:-
Our Health Care Assistants provide a variety of services:-
They also chaperone the doctors if requested by the patient.
The practice holds regular diabetic and asthma clinics
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
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
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)
Please allow approx. 10 days for the doctors to complete paperwork on your behalf. Many of these forms are not covered by the NHS and there will be a charge for completing them- full details of charges can be requested at reception.
The doctor will give you the specialist's name with whom you can arrange the appointment.
However if you are expecting your health insurance to pay you must check with them first to ensure that the specialist recommended to you is on their list of approved specialists.
Assuming that the insurance company approves you can then arrange the appointment directly with the specialist's secretary. However bear in mind that it may take up to seven working days for your referral letter to be dictated and typed. NB. Private letters are not given priority over NHS letters.
Your referral letter will be left at reception for you to collect. You will either need to take this letter with you to your appointment or if the specialist has requested, forward it to them in advance. If you wish your letter to be posted please provide us with a stamped addressed envelope.
Any queries regarding private or NHS referrals please telephone our secretaries on: 01920 468941 option 4 ( secretary) between 09:00 - 15:00
Please pop into the surgery or telephone us to make an appointment with one of our Health Care Assistants.
The service runs for 8 weeks and for your first appointment please allow 30 minutes for a short discussion on the reasons why you want to give up and how we might be able to help you.
We can offer one-to-one support, advice and nicotine replacement therapy. After your first appointment you will need weekly checks on your progress, this may be at the surgery or if more convenient over the telephone.
Don't worry, these sessions are very informal and non judgmental.
Please feel free to ask for further information at the reception desk.
