If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:-
Before your travel appointment you must complete a 'Travel Risk Assessment Form' (available from Reception) and return it to the Surgery a week before your appointment. This will enable the Practice Nurse to check your vaccination status and arrange to have any vaccinations you need ready for your appointment.
It is important to make your appointment for a minimum of 2 weeks before you travel. If you are travelling to more than one country then you must plan for your first appointment to be at least 6 weeks before you travel. If your travel plans are complex, you may need more than one appointment. The travel clinic is private ie not part of the NHS, the consultation is free but some vaccinations are chargeable (please see Travel Risk Assessment Form). We reserve the right to refuse appointments if we have limited availability as NHS work must take priority.
Most test results, (including blood and urine), take between 5 to 7 working days to come back to the Practice from the hospital laboratory.
Some x-ray results take between 2 to 3 weeks to be processed.
Please telephone 01905 723441 (using option 3) between 12.00 pm and 4.00pm - to check if your results are back.
The receptionist will only give you your result after the Doctor has seen it. Sometimes the Doctor will suggest that you make an appointment to be given the result or that they need to speak to you directly. The receptionist will advise you if this is necessary.
PLEASE NOTE : for reasons of confidentiality, results can only be given to the patient themselves or their legal carer.
A new service to make it easier for you (patients) to access advice and treatment as quickly as possible for minor and acute problems
Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP) are experienced nurses who, through further education and specialist training, have developed their skills and knowledge in order to offer extended services to patients. While not being a replacement for Doctors, they can provide nursing services that incorporate some aspects of care previously provided by Doctors.
Take a history of your health problem and perform a physical examination. Diagnose and treat minor illnesses and common health problems. Prescribe a wide range of medications. Manage long term illnesses such as asthma and coronary heart disease, offering support and education about the condition. Offer telephone advice about minor illnesses, health problems and medication. Treat minor injuries.
This service will be available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the morning and in the afternoon.
Patients requesting same-day appointments will be offered an appointment with the ANP if the problem is one the ANP can deal with.
