Everyone in England aged 60 to 74 years who is registered with a GP is automatically sent a bowel cancer screening kit every 2 years.
Medical Examinations/Insurance reports etc:
We can perform medical examinations for insurance, employment, HGV, racing drivers, diving etc., though they are not within the remit of the NHS and therefore chargeable. We will also consider requests for travel insurance claims, statements of health (relating to parachute jumps for example) & others.
These are also not within the remit of the NHS & will also attract a fee.
Please ask at reception if you require an appointment and the current fee.
Please note there is a waiting time of up to 6 weeks for appointments for medicals.
We require associated paperwork for any request for a medical examination before we can book an appointment
We will take your details and ask someone to contact you regarding your request. As the items listed above (& this list is not exhaustive) are not NHS services, they cannot be done on demand. Please allow a minimum of 7 working days for your request to be actioned (& if a medical examination is needed, the time scale will be longer)
Post Operative Wound Care
For patients who have had a surgical procedure as part of an NHS pathway (i.e. at an NHS Hospital, or part of an NHS 'Choose & Book'/'E-referral' procedure carried out at a private Hospital), our Practice Nurses will be happy to see patients to dress wounds, remove clips, remove sutures etc.
If surgery is provided privately the provider of the surgery is responsible for the post-operative care. This is in line with both Department of Health guidance and the core GMS contract for GP surgeries. If your procedure was carried out at a private Hospital then will we expect your post operative care to be carried out by that hospital. This is in accordance with good clinical practice and good industry practice.
All the doctors see patients by appointment. The midwife also has a clinic on Thursdays at 1.00pm.
Child Health Surveillance
Drs Davenport, Reid, Markham, Lim and Mahmood provide this service in conjunction with the health visitor.
