Wednesday Closing

 

The Practice is closed ONCE a month for staff development and training.  Our Doctors, Nursing and administrative staff do need time to train together, which is vital to improve service delivery.  The next date is Wednesday 22nd May 2013.  We DO NOT close on other Wednesday afternoons.

Cancelling Appointments
If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment. By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot. Please note that the Practice has a policy for Patient who DO NOT ATTEND or fail to cancel their appointment.  Patients who continue to DNA risk being removed from the Practice.
Please keep your appointment, don't waste it.

Emergency Appointments
If you require to be seen urgently, please tell the receptionist the nature of your request to assess the urgency. This facility is for emergency cases only and we ask you to not use this service for routine problems

Home Visits
Home Visits are reserved for patients who are genuinely too ill to attend surgery. Please telephone before 10.00am and be prepared to answer a few questions to help the doctors plan their calls and to assess the urgency. Please remember the doctor can see at least four patients in surgery in the time taken to do one visit.  

 

 

By arrangement.  Please ask for a travel advice form from reception before making your appointment.  Please note that charges may apply for certain travel vaccinations (not covered by NHS).

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  2 months before you travel  to ensure you are fully protected by the time you leave the UK.  If you are planning to travel:

  • Please allow plenty of time - some vaccines need to be given up to two months in advance
  • Certain vaccines may need to be ordered and kept for your use only
  • You will be advised in advance of your appointment of any costs involved and asked to bring payment with you prior to your appointment
  • You may require booster vaccinations - advice will be given as to timescales and any other additional costs involved.

Where travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription, 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.
