Noticeboard

PRACTICE INFORMATION - updates and changes to services    In order to provide flu vaccination programme information on our home page you will now find the updates and changes to practice services in the clinics and services section of our website. 

Update 24 Sept 2020    -  staffing and telephone issues  

Due to unforseen staffing problems we are limiting calls to urgent only.  We apologise for this and hope to return to normal circumstances as soon as possible.   

Unfortunately we are also experiencing ongoing intermittent faults with our telephone system.  We are in contact with our supplier to try to resolve these as quickly as possible.    

We realise how frustrating this will be if you are trying to contact us and appreciate your understanding and co-operation.   Thank you.

Non-NHS Services

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges on a private basis.  We ask patients to pre-pay for some of these items.  Reception staff will advise you of this and the fee when you enquire.

You can find the policy in Further Information section of the website under Practice Policies and Procedures.

Legal and other reports may also require some time to prepare as these are often done by the doctors outside the normal working day.

Examples include the following:

  • non_nhs_services1Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
  • Private sick notes
  • Vaccination certificates
  • Certain travel vaccinations (see relevant section)
  • Power of Attorney / Guardianship forms

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.

Please note, the Partners will not sign photographs to confirm identity.

Please see section on Practice Policies and Procedures for further information.
