The surgery will be closed for staff training from 1pm on the 2nd Thursday of every month and will reopen at 8am the following day. If you need to see a Doctor and feel you are unable to wait until we reopen, please ring the surgery and the answer phone will provide you with the contact number for Bardoc. Thank you.
Our Nurse Practitioner has advanced qualifications and clinical training, she provides healthcare in a similar way to the GP’s. Her role is different from that of a Practice Nurse because she shares the load of the GP’s and provides services which are complementary to that of the doctors and as an alternative choice for patients. A Nurse Practitioner is able to diagnose, treat and prescribe medication for various common health problems. She can also provide other services such as Health Promotion/Primary Prevention of Heart Disease/Stroke/ Family Planning/Cervical Smears/Womens Health. Appointments are available daily.
The Practice Nurses are qualified to monitor Diabetes , Hypertension , Heart Disease, Asthma, Sexual Health and Contraceptive Services in conjunction with the doctors. They also carry out Cervical Smears, ChildhoodImmunisations, Travel Vaccinations and are available to give health/lifestyle advice. Appointments are available daily.
We run a range of clinics. For an appointment or further details please call our surgery on 01706 641409.
Baby Immunisation clinic: Tuesday 10:00-12:00
Minor surgery clinic: Thursday 09:30 - 11:30 (3rd Thursday of the month after consultation with the GP)
APPOINTMENTS CAN ALSO BE BOOKED THROUGHOUT THE WEEK WITH THE NURSES FOR THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS
The Healthcare Assistant works under the supervision of the nurses. She can take blood, check blood pressure, test urine, carry out new patient medicals and ECG's.
If a GP or another member of our health care team believes you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, they will ask you where and when you would like to go. They can then, in most cases, book your appointment electronically whilst you wait.
If you would prefer to have some time to think before deciding where and when you have treatment, you will be offered the option of calling the practice later and we will be able to book your appointment then.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to contact the surgery (01706 641409) for a telephone appt with Jan (our practice nurse) - at least 6 weeks prior to travel (see below) - 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.
