CONTRACEPTIVE IMPLANT CLINICS
Contraceptive services and advice, including contraception implant fitting service now available with our female GP, please ask the reception team for further details.
MINOR ILLNESS CLINIC
Our minor illness nurse will be able to treat you for minor ailments, such as ear ache, rashes, sore throats etc. The receptionists have all been trained to help triage your ailments and will ask if you would like to see the nurse who can prescribe if required.
If you wish to see the nurse, rather than a doctor, please tell the receptionist when you book your appointment.
PRIVATE MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS
We carry out routine medical examinations for insurance companies and employers. There is a charge for such medicals which sometimes has to be paid by the patient personally. This will usually be the case for HGV and taxi driver licences and for the fitness to drive medicals required by most insurance companies for those over 70. Please ask the receptionist about charges when you book a medical.
PRIVATE HEALTH CARE
We are happy to refer patients who wish to see a specialist in private practice - we do not charge for organising this. We do make a charge for the completion of claim forms for private health insurance eg BUPA, PPP etc. A full schedule of fees, updated in April each year, is available on request from the secretary.
If you are off work for less than seven days you are responsible for your own self-certification on form SC2 (available from reception or any post office). If your employer will not accept an SC2 we can issue a private medical certificate for which we charge a fee. After seven days you will be entitled to an NHS medical certificate.
