Clinics We Offer
Any patients requiring a face to face appointment will be triaged and screened via telephone usually in the morning. If a face to face appointment is necessary this will be arranged for the afternoon.
We are now offering video consultations at the doctors discretion, initially we were using Qdoctor but found it to be slightly tricky to navigate. We are now using accuRx, to join a video consultation all you need to do it click a link which will be sent via text message. To find out more information on how to do this please click here.
We are now also offering eConsultations. You can use eConsult to request GP advice without the need for an appointment. You can ask us about your health symptoms, conditions or possible treatments. You can even request things like sick notes and fill in our long term condition reviews such as asthma and hypertension. You will need to complete a simple form about your problem or request, your GP will then decide on the best treatment for you, the practice will then respond with advice, a prescription or an appointment. To fill out an eConsult form click HERE.
Child Health Clinics
The health and wellbeing of the babies and pre-school children in our practice is monitored jointly by the doctor and the health visitor. Children will be checked at regular intervals during their first five years and you will be advised when your child is due for examination. Arrangements will be made for your child to receive all the necessary immunisations at the appropriate times. The health visitor is contactable on 01522 308800.
We provide a full range of contraceptive services and advice. For contraceptive advice, please book a routine appointment with the doctor or practice nurse. The doctor and practice nurse are also happy to give advice on prenatal care if you are planning to become pregnant.
Immunisations and Vaccinations
These can be done by the practice nurse and we are always happy to give the relevant advice. If you are travelling abroad you may well require special immunisations or antimalarial tablets. Most immunisations for travelling abroad are free under the NHS but a charge is made for some injections, including Hepatitis B injections and for anti-malarial tablets, which are not available under the NHS.
The Surgery has a well-equipped treatment room and some of the Partners are trained in a range of minor surgical procedures. One of the partners has had special training in the hospital Dermatology department. Appointments for a minor operation should only be made after an initial consultation with one of the doctors.
