The Surgery provides the following services for all registered patients:
The doctors carry out medical examinations e.g. for driving licence, insurance, sports etc. Please note there is sometimes a charge for this service. Please ask at reception for further information.
You should complete a self-certification form (SC2, available from reception or from your employer) for any illness lasting less than seven days.
We can only provide NHS certificates for illnesses causing absence from work for 7 days or more.
If an employer requests a certificate for an illness lasting less than seven days, a private certificate can be issued, for which a fee is payable.
NHS sickness certificates are only to be used in connection with sickness absence from work.
Sickness certification for all other purposes will require a private certificate or statement.
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 NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
You are welcome to call before/between/after 00:00 to enquire about your test results as our staff will have more time to help you at this/these time(s)
You will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results at the time of your test so please bear this in mind before calling. It is then your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.
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.
** Where two or more injections are required at once, these should ideally be given in different limbs. Where this is not possible, injections in the same limb should be given 2.5cm apart.
The Meningitis C vaccination will be introduced during the 2013/14 academic year and the vaccine supplied will depend on the brands available at the time of ordering
