In addition to GP consultations the practice adheres to the General Medical Services Contract for the provision of healthcare services:
Any injuries and wounds over 48 hours old should be dealt with through normal primary care services
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 also be required with the practice nurse to administer the vaccination(s). Most vaccines will have to be ordered as they are not a stock item. 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 which must be paid before the vaccine can be ordered. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. The practice nurse will provide you with full details at your initial appointment.

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and are therefore subject to a charge. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales which can be found in the Non NHS Fees and Charges section to the right of this page
Our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Contraceptive advice is available by making a normal appointment with any of the doctors. Pupils can get advice from the school nurse and a full range of services is provided by family planning clinics (see below).
