Emergency contraception is available. Please ask at Reception for an urgent same-day appointment.
Family Planning & Maternity Services
All doctors and some nurses can offer advice on contraception. All doctors are qualified to look after women during pregnancy. Some GPs are also qualified to fit/remove intra-uterine devices (coils) and implants (Nexplanon).
Influenza vaccination is recommended for patients with a heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and for patients in residential care and those aged 65 and over. Vaccinations start in October/November depending on when vaccine is available.
Certain doctors are qualified to carry out minor operations including joint injections. Most of these operations are carried out in the treatment area. Please make it quite clear to the receptionist if the doctor has advised you that you require a minor operation. These often need a longer time than an ordinary appointment.
These are carried out by practice nurses and doctors. Please remember to tell the receptionist if you are booking for a cervical smear.
Family Planning Clinics
A weekly clinic for advice on contraception and sexual health. Emergency contraception is also available.
One to one counselling from one of our healthcare assistants. There may be a short waiting list for this service.
The practice nurses are available Monday to Friday between 08:45 and 18.00 (emergencies only between 12:00 and 13:30). Nurses are qualified to give advice on minor conditions, including accidents, dressings, injections (including holiday vaccinations) blood and other tests including cervical smears. They are happy to advise you on any aspect of healthy living. Please book appointments by calling the appointments line.
If you are travelling abroad, the treatment area nurses can give you all the advice you need about vaccinations and how to keep yourself healthy while you are away. You are advised to complete a travel questionnaire (you will find under forms) and return it to us at least 8 - 10 weeks before you travel. Some travel vaccinations are not covered under the NHS and there will be a fee to pay. For more information see our travel page.
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 8 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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the travel form before coming to see the nurse - you will find it under forms.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
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.
Where fees are payable, these must be paid at the time of booking your appointment. Cheques (with cheque card) or cash only.
