All our diabetic patients are encouraged to attend our Diabetes Clinic annually to help improve their control and reduce the risks of any complications associated with diabetes. You should be asked to attend a review with nurse Emily or nurse Mandi or you can phone and ask for an appointment earlier if you are having problems.

We offer a full Travel and Immunisation Service (excluding Yellow Fever). Our nurses have up-to-date information for travellers and are able to advice on the relevant vaccines and anti-malarials that you may require depending on your destination. There is a charge for some of these vaccines and anti-malarials.
More information is available on the above tab.
These are available from the practice nurse. Current NHS practice is to offer smears three yearly between the ages of 25 (or as soon as family planning is required) to 34 years, and five yearly from 35 to 64 years. Individual needs may vary and you may be offered a cervical smear test more frequently if the doctor thinks it is appropriate.
This confidential service is provided mainly by our nurse who is trained in the following types of contraception:
Coil fitting is also available, for anybody interested in this method. An appointment is required with Dr Cox to discuss this further.
Coming to the doctor can be difficult. We provide a confidential service to all our patients including under 16s. This means that you can tell others about your visit but we won’t. The only reason we may have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission would be to protect you or someone else from very serious harm. We would always try and discuss this with you first.
We are happy to see young people both with and without their parents, when appropriate. There are many misconceptions about whether consultations are confidential and also whether you can talk about various sensitive issues with the GP.
Where do I go for help with..
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.
Further information about countries and vaccinations required can be found 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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
