Recall Systems & Chronic Disease Management
There are recall systems in operation for immunisations and cervical cytology. The monitoring of asthma, heart disease, hypertension (blood pressure), weight and diabetes is carried out in special clinics by arrangement with the practice nurse or your doctor.
Well Woman Clinics
We do not hold a well woman clinic as such, but all aspects related to women’s health can be attended to in a routine appointment with either the doctor of your choice or one of the practice nurses. Cervical smears are usually done by our practice nurses.
Family Planning Services
Full family planning services, including emergency contraception are available at the surgery. Please ask your doctor or the nurse about this service, and the receptionist will arrange an appointment for you, either in a clinic or in a normal surgery.
These are held on Wednesdays by appointment with the midwife.
Child Health Surveillance
This is carried out by all the doctors, together with the health visitor.
Mental Health Services
We have a CPN (Community Psychiatric nurse) trained in looking after people with mental health problems. Eldercare psychiatric services within the community are provided by our eldercare CPN. Patients requiring therapy services can self refer to http://www.outlooksw.co.uk/. In addition we have a drugs and alcohol counsellor who will see patients with (or relatives of patients) alcohol problems.
In house physiotherapy is provided by Rowena Beckley and Liz Thomas. Patients who wish to see either must first consult one of the doctors for a referral.
We offer a comprehensive range of travel vaccinations and advice. Please give as much notice as possible and contact our practice nurses to discuss an appropriate immunisation schedule. A cost may be incurred as not all of these services are covered by the NHS.
They are performed regularly in the surgery. Ask at reception or telephone us on 01872 572255 to book an appointment in one of the clinics after seeing the doctor.
General Nursing Services
The nurses and healthcare assistant offer services including blood pressure checks, removal of stitches, minor ailments, immunisations and vaccinations, ECGs, blood tests and monitoring of asthma and diabetes.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to see the practice nurse. Please fill out the travel questionnaire below and submit to us. Our nurse will contact you regarding an appointment.
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.

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
