Clinics & Services
We intend to continually grow and develop the services we offer to fully meet the needs of our patient population. Please feel free to speak to your clinician or to our reception staff about the services available to you. The following list gives examples of the services that we offer:
Chronic disease management clinics (such as diabetes/asthma/chronic heart disease)
Other Services (for which fees may apply) include:
Our fees are in line with national guidelines.
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 a 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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
The practice staff speak a number of languages and to help patients we have documented them below along with whether they are fluent or not.
This does not take away your right to have access to an interpreter but the practice felt that this may help some of our patients who do not have English as their first spoken language.
Dr Borhan: Farsi (fluent), Afghan and Arabic (some).
Dr Ahmed: Urdu (fluent).
Dr Adetunji: Yoruba (fluent) and Arabic (some).
Nurse John: Malayalam (fluent) and Hindi (some).
Valerie Herbert: French (understands and speaks broken French).
Julia Freezer: British Sign Language (some).
