Noticeboard

NEW PATIENTS WELCOME!  We are registering new patients.  If you live out of our catchment area you may still be able to register as an Out of Area Patient if you do not expect to need home visits.  Out of Area patients need to call 111 to arrange visits as they are not provided by the practice. 

MAGAZINES -  We are short of magazines for the waiting room - if you have anything appropriate that you could pass on please bring them in!

OUT OF HOURS - CALL 111 if you need medical advice or assistance anytime the practice is closed. All calls are free to this number.  CALL 999 immediately if the problem may be life threatening at anytime.

PRIVATE WORK - Please note that anything that is not NHS contracted work can take up to six weeks to complete as the doctors must give priority to all NHS work.  This includes some forms that are required for the Council.  Fees are charged where appropriate for private work.   If you do need something done please contact the Patient Services team to find about about the charges.  A GP appointment is NOT needed if you need to have forms or reports done.   Charges can be paid by card over the phone and must be paid before the work is undertaken.

We suggest you visit the surgery and complete a holiday form as soon as you know you want to travel. Most vaccines need to be administered a minimum of 3 weeks prior to travel to build up your immunity. Some vaccines need to be given as a course over a period of time. If you are planning a long trip with many exciting destinations then the more forward planning the better. If you have a record of previous immunisations please bring it with you. If you were born overseas, have no record of previous immunisations, or missed out on childhood immunisations, then you could need more vaccines than you think to ensure that you are covered.

We recommend the following websites to read about diseases, vaccines and non-vaccine treatable   diseases.

We also offer malaria prophylaxis advice, but we need a full itinerary to give accurate advice. Many exotic destinations require malaria tablets that need a private script: charge per person - £5. Some chemists also provide this service.
