Cancelling your Appointment If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.
Test Results Please telephone for any results after 2pm and try NOT to telephone during morning or evening surgery when the staff on the desk are extremely busy. We would appreciate your consideration in this matter.
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. If you are planning long term travel (greater than 1 month) we may need to order vaccines in for you. Your final vaccination 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.
Unfortunately there is a current nationwide shortage of stock in the UK for travel vaccinations available within the NHS. At present there are no ADULT doses of Hepatitis A are available and Hepatits A in combination with typhoid is also unavailable.
Anyone requiring these vaccinations need to contact travel clinics in the area to see if they have any available. At present paediatric doses of Hepatits A are still available.
Hepatitis B in combination with Hepatitis A is available but no longer free of charge within the NHS. The cost is £50 per vaccination (usual schedule is a total of 4 vaccinations). We do currently have stock of Typhoid vaccinations however the stock may soon be exhausted and if so patients will be directed to the local travel clinics for this also.There is no shortage of Tetanus.

Children's immunisations are performed by our practice nurses under the NHS Child Health Surveillance. Usually patients are sent appointments by the Health Authority when the child is due for immunisation. However, if such appointment is not received, parents can contact the surgery to make their own appointment.
Parents are welcome to speak to the Practice Nurse if they have any concerns regarding any of the recommended immunisations.

We are able to offer the service of Minor Surgery and Joint Injections.
Minor surgery procedures include skin wart and lump removal where necessary under local anaesthetic. This has led to early detection of skin cancer. For non cancer skin conditions this can avoid any continuing nuisance caused over a period of time.
Joint injections are now routinely given for shoulder, elbow, wrist and knee conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, painful heel conditions and other inflammatory conditions etc.
Please ask at reception for further information. Booking for these procedures is short and straightforward.
With the help of Dr Mahmud we have developed a structured team of clinicians who treat our patients as they are treated in the hospitals. This means that newer medicines which were only used or initiated in the hospital by consultants in Diabetes in the past, are now used in our surgery by our clinicians.
In the past there were difficulties with using Insulin in some patients and now there are suitable alternatives in the right context for some patients which we can apply.
We offer diabetic checks by our healthcare assistants and nursing team.
