All adults should be immunised against tetanus every ten years. If you are travelling abroad and think you may need immunisation, please make an appointment with the practice nurse at least eight weeks in advance. See our travel health page for more information.

New Patient Health Checks

When you join the Practice as a new patient, you will be offered a new patient check. If you are on repeat medication, this will be with one of our doctors, if not, then please book to see our health care assistant. You will be weighed, have your urine checked and be asked a series of health questions, this will also give you the opportunity to raise any concerns you might have.

Medicals

All medicals for insurance, HGV licences, driving, elderly driver etc. Can be arranged via the receptionists. These are not covered by the NHS and a fee will be payable.

Research and Training

Our practice is recognised for post-graduate medical training. Each year a fully qualified doctor joins us as a Registrar in General Practice. Occasionally we may ask for your permission to videotape your consultation – doctors will only see this and this will be used for training purposes only.

Our practice is also active in undertaking various research projects, which include new approaches to treating various diseases. You may be requested to participate in these research projects but participation is purely voluntary.

Phone Clinic

We have a doctors’ and nurses’ phone clinic where we can give advice on minor ailments over the phone. Please ring the surgery for more information.
