Please NOTE - After recent Government guidelines in the wearing of Face Masks or Face Coverings, all patients who attend for face to face appointments are required to wear a face mask or covering on entering the Practice.

The Practice Team
We are an NHS practice and provide the full range of general medical and nursing care for our registered patients:
Nursing clinics run daily. These clinics are predominantly for long term conditions/chronic disease reviews, e.g. asthma reviews, diabetic checks, etc., and for vaccinations.
If you would like to stop smoking, need advice on losing weight, or would like information on diet, exercise or alcohol please book an appointment with the HCA.
The practice nurses review most long term conditions where the patient is stable, more complicated cases are referred to the GPs for assessment and appropriate action.
If you have been diagnosed with one of the following conditions please come and see our nurse who will be able to offer advice and help:
Our nursing team carry out cervical screening and chlamydia screening for registered and non-registered patients
We have first class midwifery services. The midwife will be able to offer help and support throughout your pregnancy to when your child is born and immediately afterwards. There are clinics each week in the surgery on a Wednesday – appointments can be booked through reception.
Please make an appointment with the doctor when your baby is 8 weeks old for a routine health check. When booking, please let the receptionist know that it is for your baby’s 8 week check and she will arrange for your baby to see the nurse afterwards to have his/her first set of injections. New mums should also make an appointment with the doctor around about this time for their own check-up.
Further details about immunisations can be obtained by clicking here.
Our GPs and nurses can give advice on contraception and can also give teenage pregnancy advice. Advice is also available on healthy eating and vitamins to take before conception to ensure your baby has the best possible start. Please make an appointment at reception. If you are having difficulty conceiving, please make an appointment to see one of our GPs for help and advice.
Our healthcare assistant is a qualified phlebotomist and we are able to offer blood tests at the practice for some of our patients - please speak to Reception for details. Appointments are available on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Patients should get advice from our nurse on travel health - it is advisable to do this before actually booking a holiday. Some holiday vaccinations are required up to six weeks before you travel. Please complete a vaccination questionnaire with as much information as possible (available from reception or download one from the above tab) and return it to the practice. The nurse will then assess what vaccinations are required and reception will contact you to arrange your first appointment at which you will be given the relevant vaccinations. Most patients will only need one appointment but if you are back packing or a frequent traveller/long stay traveller then you may need subsequent appointments.
Free NHS health checks are available to adults aged between 40 and 74. These are provided by our clinical team in 2 stages-
At the first appointment the HCA or practice nurse will ask questions about your lifestyle, record height, weight, blood pressure, pulse rate and conduct a simple fasting blood test to check cholesterol levels.
At the second appointment with the GP, these results are then discussed & relevant information and support for maintaining a healthy lifestyle will be available.
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.
A list of our travel vaccination charges can be found at:

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe

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.
