In addition to GP consultations the practice adheres to the General Medical Services Contract for the provision of healthcare services:
Dear Patient, the NHS exists to provide you with care and treatment for any chronic or acute conditions you may have. The NHS does not cover private administrative work such as certificates for school exam boards/gyms/holidays/diets and insurance etc... This work is undertaken by the GP outside NHS consulting hours and is charged privately. A guideline list of common fees is shown below but these may be subject to change (as they are reviewed annually). For a personalised quote please ask the practice manager.

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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
The NHS Health Check is your chance to get your free midlife MOT. For adults in England aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition, it checks your circulatory and vascular health and what your risk of getting a disabling vascular disease is.
