In addition to general medical consultations we are pleased to be able to provide specialist clinics and services covering the following areas:
Home Visits - We ask that all home visit requests are with us by 11am to enable us to plan the GPs day effectively. Visits are shared out equally amongst the GPs on duty that day so you cannot request a particular GP as they may not be working that day. Home visits are not done during the extended hours period.
The receptionist will need as much information as possible to enable the GP to prioritise requests. A decision to visit remains at the GPs discretion and is based on their assessment of medical necessity. On some occasions there may be a telephone medical consultation and advice given as an alternative.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to 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 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.

Travelling in Europe

Some services provided fall outside the scope of the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
