Mon - Fri are sit and wait allotted timings. Thursdays surgery carries on from 1645 to 1900 but is by appointment only.
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 information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6-8 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 ensure the vaccine is fully functional at time of travel.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice and vaccination, please collect and fill out a Travel Questionnaire. The form is available from Reception, and a Travel Clinic appointment can be made once the completed form is returned.
An online form is available (below) but this version differs from the actual form and information required by our nurses. We have included it for your guidance only. Please DO NOT submit online.
Travel Questionnaire Example Only
MILITARY VETERANS TREATMENT PRIORITY PROTOCOL
The purpose of this protocol is to raise awareness of the requirements in relation to veterans and to summarise the DoH guidance on the subject.
Many conditions do not become obvious until after a veteran has left military service, therefore all GPs should be aware of the government wish to prioritise care of this nature and consider the military aspects of a condition when diagnosing and referring to secondary care.
Most Frequent Conditions.
Audiology – noise induced hearing loss. There has been a lack of compensation in the past and little understanding in relating to this problem. It is possible therefore that cases may present now which have been symptomatic for some time.
Mental Health – may present some years after military discharge.
Orthopaedic – may arise some time after discharge but be related to in-service activity.
Where a known veteran is referred, check with the patient that they are willing for the referral to show that they are a service veteran.
Where consent is given by the patient the referral can state they are a veteran, and the clinician should give a clinical opinion within the referral as to whether the condition (or request for further investigation) is likely to relate to the period of military service.
Where consent is refused by the patient the information should not be included.
The secondary care provider clinicians are responsible for prioritisation, taking into account the relative priorities of other patient groups based on clinical need.
When using Choose & Book, GPs should select the correct priority of the referral based on clinical need or clinical guidelines only. Where veteran’s details are included within the referral then the secondary care service is responsible for military prioritisation, and they will assess other demands on their limited resources based on clinical priorities.
The following Read Codes will be used for all known veterans in the practice:
History Relating to Army Service 13q0
History Relating to Navy Service 13q1
History Relating to Air Force Service 13q2
These will be coded regardless of referral activity where it is known that the patient is an ex-serviceman / servicewoman.
Where a veteran considers that the arrangements for priority treatment have not been properly considered or fulfilled they are able to use the NHS Complaints Procedure to have the matter investigated.

The Practice offers Ear Syringing to all patients. Prior to booking an appointment we ask that you first try to self treat with olive oil drops for 2-3 weeks as syringing may cause Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and very occasionally perforation of the ear drum. It is very important to prepare your ears thoroughly prior to syringing to reduce the risks of complications.
Preparation: Lay on your side with the infected ear uppermost. drop 5 drops of oil (at room temperature) into the ear canal. Stay lying down for 5 minutes then wipe away any excess oil. Do not put cotton wool in your ears.
Repeat the procedure with the other ear if required.
Repeat this procedure morning and evening at least 5 days prior to syringing.
Before seeing the Nurse you will need to complete a consent form which is obtainable from the Reception of the Surgery on the day of your appointment.
