Patient Participation Group.
The next Patient Participation Group meeting is to be announced. These meetings are open to all registered patients so please come along if you are free. Your ideas and views are important to us and can help us shape services to our patient's needs.
Appointments not attended
In the month of May a total of 17 patients did not attend their booked appointments (16 with the doctors and 1 with the practice nurse) nor were the appointments cancelled so they could not be offered to patients in need of them. If you no longer need or are unable to attend the appointment you have booked, please call the surgery on 020 7266 1449 to cancel it.
All patients are offered a health check at the time of registering with the surgery. In addition to providing general medical services the surgery offers maternity services, family planning, cervical smears, child health monitoring and travel immunisations. The receptionists will be pleased to help you with any enquiries and with booking your appointments.
We have a practice nurse at the surgery who works closely with the doctors to provide wound care, chronic disease management and cervical screening. To make an appointment to see the nurse, please phone (020) 7266 1449.
Within The Medical Centre we have a team of health visitors who provide advice on healthcare, particularly for pregnant women, babies and children under the age of five. To contact the practice health visitor, please telephone (020) 7266 8600.
Community staff are available within The Medical Centre to provide help and advice with chiropody, children's dentistry and speech therapy. To contact the community staff, please telephone (020) 7266 8600.
Non-NHS services include medical examination for HGV licensing, elderly drivers, pre-employment, insurance and fitness to travel. These are undertaken outside normal surgery hours and so a special appointment must be made.
Fees are payable for these services and a list of charges is available on request.
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.
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)
