We have six fully trained practice nurses available Monday to Friday. They have their own appointment system. As each nurse specialises in different areas, the receptionist will ask you, when making your appointment, which clinic you wish to attend.
Patients requiring GPs to do non-NHS work, e.g. private sick notes, medical examinations, reports, and claim forms etc. will be charged. An up to date list of charges is displayed in the foyer. Fees paid for work undertaken are non-refundable.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will be asked to complete a travel questionnaire, available at bottom of this page or from reception. Please complete the form and return it to reception.
The Practice Nurse will review the information you have provided and either arrange for you to have an appointment for vaccinations or give you travel advice.
It is important to submit the travel questionnaire at least 4 weeks before you travel - as a some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Vaccines should be given at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Further travel health information for people going abroad is available online, click on the links below:
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 provided free of charge by the NHS.
