Our Practice Nurse offers a range of different clinic’s including:
We now have a nurse practitioner who can see minor illness cases. Her appointments are Monday afternoon, Tuesday morning and Friday mornings and are only bookable on the day.
We no longer hold an antenatal clinic at our surgery as the midwives are now based at the Galleries Health Centre and make their own appointments.
We now offer an Extended Access Service, this service is held over at the Galleries Health Centre between 6:00pm-8:30pm.
If you are unable to get an appointment with your own gp the same day we can offer you the Extended Access Service where you will be given an appointment with a gp for that same evening.
Extended Access Service is for minor aliments and not long term problems.

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.
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.
