If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the online travel form and then return to the Practice. You will then be contacted by the Practice once the Practice Nurse has assesssed your vaccination needs to arrange a suitable appointment. 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 8 - 10 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 NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form and return to the Practice. You will then be contacted by the Practice once the Practice Nurse has assessed your vaccination needs to arrange a suitable appointment. We thank you for your cooperation.

Blood test and urine results - Usually take at least two to three working days to come back from the laboratory. The doctor requesting the test should inform you whether to make a further appointment or whether you need to telephone the Practice for the results.
The result will have been read by the doctor and instructions given to the nurse or receptionist as to what action is required. The receptionist will only be able to inform you of the result and is not qualified to discuss the result with you. The Practice will only contact you with a result if there is a problem and NOT if the result is normal. Shoud you wish to contact the Practice for a result then please telephone the Practice, preferably in the afternoon.
Cervical Smear Results - All patients are informed of their results by letter.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
An X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.
If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.
An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.
You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
We provide Aural Microsuction (which has replaced ear syringing) for patients under the NHS, which we have been carrying out for over 8 years. This saves patients being referred to acute hospitals.
