Minor Illness - In addition to the GPs, the Practice Nurses are also available to see patients with minor illnesses.

Other Clinics/services - Please contact the reception staff to book an appointment for travel vaccinations, warfarin testing, young persons advice, contraception advice/smear tests, maternity care, lifestyle advice/health checks, childhood immunisations, minor illness, dressings and ear syringing.
CVD health checks - you will receive an invitation from the Practice for this health check. Please contact the receptionist to make an appointment. We would encourage you to attend. However, if you do not wish to do so, please let us know. Before you attend for your appointment you will be required to have a routine blood test and the receptionist will ask you to call at the Surgery to collect a blood test form.
Minor Surgery - please contact the reception staff to book an appointment with Dr Mellor, Dr Reid or Dr Pasupathi to discuss.
ECG - please make an appointment with any doctor at the Practice and they will arrange this for you.
Child Development - the Practice or Health visitor will contact you regarding child development checks.
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 - ideally 6 weeks before you travel. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
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 and therefore are a chargeable service.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
