All new patients will be asked to attend for a health check with one of our Health Care Assistants. This gives us the opportunity to meet you, discuss any health problems you might have and offer health care advice before your medical records arrive from your last doctor. Failure to attend for a health check will compromise your on going care and may delay your registration.
For travel vaccinations you will need to obtain a form from reception. It is imperative that you allow at least 4 - 6 weeks before your planned date of departure when requesting vaccinations. A fee will be charged for some travel vaccinations IE Hep B and Rabies. The Practice Nurses will give advice. Routine Tetanus and Polio vaccinations are free; please ask if you are up to date.
Smear tests are completed by the practice Nurse and are part of a screening programme looking at the health of the cervix, the screening actually commencing from the age of 25 and thereafter every 3 years until the age of 50. This is then followed by screening every 5 years until the age of 64.
Advice and help on diet, weight reduction, exercise, stopping smoking, lowering alcohol consumption and avoiding heart disease will be given as appropriate by our Health Care assistants or alternatively a Practice Nurse or Doctor.
These include HGV, PSV licenses, Pre-employment, Sports, Insurance medicals and DNA sampling which are carried out by appointment. These particular services are not provided as a standard NHS service and are therefore chargeable. Please ask for current fees.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to complete a Holiday Travel Form, which can be collected from reception. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting.
On completion of this form, this will be forwarded onto the Nursing Team to determine what vaccinations are required. You will be then offered an appointment with the practice nurse to have your holiday vaccinations.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
It is important to complete the holiday travel form as early as possible - at least 4-6 weeks before you travel - An appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered, as they are not a stock vaccine. Your appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Pharmacy First List NNECCG
Pharmacy first aims to improve patient access to GP appointments by encouraging patients with certain minor ailments to use the pharmacy for treatment rather than making an appointment at the surgery.
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.

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.

Helpful advice on accessing local services/out-of-hours services:
Should you need urgent medical attention while we are closed, please ring the surgery number. You will be automatically transferred to our "out of hours" provider, Nottingham Emergency Medical Services (NEMS). They will advise you on the best option for you. If you do need to be seen they will advise where this will be.
Another option should you have difficulty contacting NEMS; please ring 111. this is a free call - They will also advise you on the best option for you. If you do need to be seen they will advise where this will be. Please avoid going to the Accident & Emergency Dept if you can.
Our simple guide below is intended to help you make the right decision:
Step 1 - It's not an Emergency:- Go to / contact your local Pharmacy for immediate health advice & for minor health problems.
Pharmacies sell medicines for a wide range of ailments without a prescription and can advise on where best to get further help if needed.
Get advice or medicines from the pharmacy for:
• High temperature, aches and pains • Stomach upsets, indigestion and constipation. • Allergies, hay fever, bites and stings; • Coughs and colds; • Cystitis, urinary infections and thrush • Conjunctivitis; • Emergency contraception (morning after pill)
Don’t let a health problem become urgent – contact your GP surgery and make an appointment with the Doctor if symptoms persist.
Please follow link below for a list of Pharmacists in the Nottingham.
Step 2 - I NEED to see a Doctor or a Nurse - Call the surgery.
If for any reason you are unable to secure an appointment with your GP there is the NHS Urgent Care Centre , Seaton House, off London Road, Nottingham, NG2 4LA where an appointment is not required. You can see an experienced nurse for the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses without an appointment.
NHS URGENT CARE CENTRE – no appointment needed and are open 365 days a year :
For more information please contact NHS Nottingham North and East Clinical Commissioning Group Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 0800 028 3693 or email: email@example.com
Dentist – if you are in pain:- Registered patients should phone their own dental practice.
You can also dial 111 for dental advice.
For advice on registering with a dental practice call PALS on 0800 183 0456.
Please follow link below to locate a Dentist near you:
Step 3 - What Is An Emergency?
An emergency is a serious injury or life-threatening problem: 1 in 4 people who go to A&E don't need to be there!
Remember that A&E and dialing 999 for an Ambulance should only be used in emergencies; for example:
• Collapse or unconsciousness; • Severe chest pain; • Severe breathing difficulty; • Heavy bleeding; • broken/ suspected broken bones; • Deep wounds (e.g. stab wounds/laceration) In an emergency you can go to your nearest hospital A&E department or call 999 for an ambulance.
Attending A&E/calling for an Ambulance for minor problems such as you can't get an appointment with your GP or because you have no transport may put other people’s lives at risk, increase waiting times for other patients and ultimately is not an efficient use of NHS resources. Contacting your local pharmacist, your GP practice or using NHS Urgent Care Centre will usually result in faster and more appropriate advice and treatment.
