Our practice nurses are available Monday, Wednesday and Friday and can be contacted through the receptionists. They can help you with:
Patients with on-going medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, asthma, C.O.P.D., epilepsy, stroke and T.I.A. are sent for on an annual basis, usually during their month of birth (except for those with hypertension having birthdays in April, May, and June where there will be a short delay).
A reminder will be printed onto the prescription counterfoil for 3 months prior to the month your review is required and you are requested to make an appointment to have that review done. Currently the message is PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT with nurse for annual review check, fasting blood test and medication review. Normally done during the month of your birth. You will need this for your medication to be continued.
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 N.H.S..

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the European Union has published useful information for travellers on the E.U. website.
There are certain services that fall outside of the N.H.S. and for these a fee is charged, when you book for any of these services the receptionist will be able to advise you of the cost. Here are some of those services:
