NHS Free Health Check
The NHS Health Check is for adults in England between the ages of 40 and 74. For more information please ask Reception for a leaflet where you can learn more about what the check is, what it involves, and when and how you can get it. It will also help you to understand more about your results when you receive them, and what to do next.
To take charge of your long-term health with a Free NHS Health Check, please book an appointment to see your GP.
Travel Advice and Vaccinations
This service is available by appointment only with our Practice Nurse. You are advised to speak to the Practice Nurse prior to your appointment to enable her to explain which vaccinations are applicable and the cost, if any. Some vaccinations are free under the NHS but others are chargeable. Please note that there is a charge for private prescriptions for anti-malarial medications. All details are available at our Reception. Our surgery accepts cash only. We are a registered Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.
Smoking Cessation Clinics
Our Practice offers a Stop Smoking Service. Please contact Reception to book an appointment.
You can request repeat prescriptions on line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Requests for repeat medication can also be made by completing the form and dropping it in the Prescription Box at Reception, by Fax, or a self-addressed stamped envelope by post. Telephone requests for repeat prescriptions are not accepted as serious errors may occur.
Patients are advised to make a six month or yearly medication review appointment with your regular Doctor.
Please allow 48 hours, i.e. 2 working days when requesting repeat prescriptions.
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
If you are on regular medication and go to the same Chemist to collect your Prescription, you can choose the Pharmacy closest to where you live or work. The Practice can send your Repeat Prescription directly to the Pharmacy electronically. Please contact your Pharmacy / Reception for completing the paper work and for further information.
If you prefer to have a telephone consultation with the Doctor on duty, please call reception from 8.00am (Mon-Fri) to make arrangements. Please note that telephone consultations take place late morning / early afternoon only.
Please make a double appointment for a full medical examination with the GP. This is normally carried out at the end of the morning clinic. A Medical examination is provided for Insurance, Fostering and Driving. Information regarding the charges for this service can be obtained from Reception.
