Don’t forget that the Practice Nurses can deal with many problems without recourse to the doctor. You are encouraged to make an appointment to see the nurse for many aspects of health advice.
Our Nurses deal with pre-travel and ‘flu immunisation, blood tests, injections, dressings, wound care. The Nurses also run clinics looking after diabetes, asthma, blood pressure, cervical smear tests etc and are able to give expert dietary, contraceptive and lifestyle advice.
ECG facilities, minor surgical procedures, including freezing warts with liquid nitrogen.
Our Community Nurses offer a complete range of nursing services within the home setting.
The Health Visitors provide a full-time service, mainly to under fives. They are notified of all new births and will visit mothers at home after the midwife has completed her care. If you have a problem and need to contact the Health Visitor speak to reception who will advise you of a contact number.
All the partners provide a full maternity service in conjunction with the Midwife. Full ante-natal and post-natal care is given and all arrangements for your confinement will be made
Please talk to us beforehand if you are thinking about a future pregnancy, as there are several positive things you can do to increase your chances of a healthy baby.
Hospital appointments are sometimes wasted because we and/or the Hospital Records Department have not been informed of a change of address or telephone number.
Please tell us if you have changed your address or telephone number!
Waiting times vary tremendously, but you should be notified of your appointment fairly soon after your GP has made the referral. If not, do check with us.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please complete a travel questionnaire from the surgery at least 8 weeks before you intend to travel. Our nurse will contact you to arrange a suitable appointment for your vaccinations, once they have determined what vaccinations and advice is required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important you give us sufficient time and information prior to travel as some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your 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.
