Please note, with effect from 1st November 2017 the surgery will be closed from 1-2pm every lunch time whilst GPs undertake their visits to patients that are housebound.
**Please do not attend the surgery in person between 1-2pm.**
Our reception telephone lines will remain open as usual during this period. This change will not affect clinic times or reduce the number of appointments available. If you wish to drop in a repeat prescription request during this time, please put through letterbox.
The practice team thank you for your co-operation.
In addition to general consultations we offer a comprehensive range of clinics and healthcare services:
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make a double appointment with one of our Practice Nurses to discuss your requirements.
They will decide if you require any vaccinations and if they can be administered here. Any vaccination that can be administered here will be provided at this appointment (subject to availability of the vaccine)
This appointment should be at least 6-8 weeks before you travel and please make it clear to reception that the appointment is for Travel Vaccinations.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. You may be signposted to a private travel clinic by our nurses should you require Non NHS travel vaccinations or specialist travel advice.
We only provide the vaccinations which are free on the NHS.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to contact The Globe Travel Health Centre on 01603 667323, who will advise you on what vaccinations may be required.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability. Please allow up to 8 weeks for completion of non-NHS work
See "Fees for Non-NHS Services" for a non-exhaustive list of charges.
