Further developments include;
1.Twice monthly Ultrasound clinics in the former police station.
2.Three days a week physiotherapy also in the former police station.
In addition to general medical consultations we are pleased to be able to provide a number of specialist services and clinics.
Our practice nurses and healthcare assistants are available daily for the following:
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to fill in a travel form and 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 may be required with the practice nurse to receive some vaccinations if 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 vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Patients are advised to check for any updated information for their destination in case there are any changes by looking on the National Travel Health Network and Centre website.
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:- European Health at a Glance 2012 (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Some services provided fall outside the scope of the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
Our reception staff will be happy to advise you about appointment availability and applicable charges.
