Minor Illness Clinic with The Practice Nurse
Our practice nurse is fully trained in Minor Illness. If your complaint is routine or of a minor nature then she can help. She will see both Asthma and Diabetic patients within her routine surgery appointments.
All the doctors within the practice are firmly committed to this test as an easy and painless means of detecting the very earliest signs of cancer of the cervix and they wish to persuade as many of our ladies as soon as possible to take advantage of this test. Please make an appointment with the practice nurse.
Our Practice Nurse gives out travel advice to ensure good health whilst abroad.
We actively promote this vaccination on all our over 65yr old and ‘At Risk’ patients. We run a clinic, which normally falls around the end September - 1st two weeks of October each year. Please look out for dates leading up to this campaign.
Should you require a blood test we have a Phlebotomist from the QE11 Hospital running her own clinic by appointment only.
Often our patients wish to have medical examinations for various things like HGV, PSV, and fitness to undertake activities- but please be aware that these types of medical examinations are outside the NHS and are therefore considered private. There is a charge for all these types of examinations.
Other services which are considered as a private matter and are not to do with the NHS, and therefore chargeable; are forms that the doctor needs to complete for insurance purposes, mortgage purposes etc.
There is a list of the private fees for these services, and further information is available at Reception.
