Carried out by Dr Bramwell every week at both surgeries. Appointments will be sent when examinations are due.
Minor Surgery Clinics are held by Drs Young and Wilkinson. However, all the doctors will carry out minor operations where necessary.
These are held at both surgeries and appointments will be sent to patients when they are due to be seen. Patients who feel they should attend one of these clinics but have not received an appointment, should contact the relevant surgery. All of the doctors provide maternity services, contraceptive advice and adult immunisation. There is a successful screening programme in operation for the prevention of cervical cancer. Heart disease prevention, health promotion, and diet advice consultations are held by the practice nurse for patients who feel they would benefit from these services.
A phlebotomist employed by the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust attends each surgery weekly to take blood tests.
A smoking cessation programme is also available. To take part contact reception in the first instance.
There are some services which are not covered by the NHS and for which we charge a fee, these include: Private Medical Certificate, HGV Medical, Insurance Injury Reports etc. A full list of services and charges is available at reception.
If you require any health advice or vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. The nurse will need to know which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations or other precautions are required.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to complete the course of vaccinations. Your last appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Please note that you may be charged for some vaccinations as they may not be available as an NHS service. Please contact reception to enquire about prices.
Yellow fever vaccination is not available from this surgery – a list of yellow fever centres can be found on the NaTHNaC website (listed below).
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print out and complete the Travel Questionnaire below before coming to see the nurse. Please bring the completed questionnaire with you to your appointment.
Before you travel it is advisable to check the current Foreign & Commonwealth Office information and security advice regarding your country of destination. www.fco.gov.uk/travel
National Travel Health Network & Centre (NaTHNaC):www.nathnac.org
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
