Healthcare has become complicated involving many disciplines; i.e. GP, A&E, 111, Physio, Link Workers, Pharmacists, NHS Choices etc. and due to increasing and changing demand we need to develop our reception staff to ensure that our patients receive the correct care from the right professional.
Our reception staff are helping us to ensure that patients are directed to the right person at the right time in the right place. To achieve this our staff will ask everyone why they want to see the doctor, nurse or health care assistant. Our reception staff are receiving training for this directional role and we hope that all our patients will support us in this change; which will benefit us all. Dr Solway

Travel Advice and Vaccinations - We are recognised as a yellow fever centre.
Blood pressure checks
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease checks (COPD)
Family Planning advice and pill 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 - 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.
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.
