CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

To access the most up-to-date information on the Coronavirus, please click the link below:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public

This site is updated daily.  Please be aware the online booking system and the 24 hour booking service to enable patients to book their own appointments has temporarily been removed. This is to minimise any risk to patients and staff in coming into contact with coronavirus.  We apologise for the inconvenience but hope all our patients will understand the rationale behind it.  Both these facilities will of course be returned to normal as soon as it is felt safe to do so.  Please bear with our reception staff who will now be asking our patients when they call if they have travelled to China, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Japan or other South Asian countries in the past 2 weeks or within 2 weeks of getting unwell.  This is to minimise any further risk of spreading.  Thank you very much for your understanding.

BEDWELL BUILDING WORKS

Our Bedwell Site is currently undergoing some building works to update the surgery, these started on 03.12.19 and are anticipated to be completed by the end of MARCH 2020. During this period there will be a certain amount of unavoidable disruption but we are doing our best to limit this so please bear with us.

Non-NHS Services

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charghealth_clipboardes. Examples include the following:



    • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)

    • Insurance claim forms

    • Prescriptions for taking medication abroad

    • Private sick notes

    • Vaccination certificates 



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. 

Please allow plenty of time for these types of requests to be completed. It can take up to 30 days to respond to, 60 days if deemed excessive. 

Please note, on the advice from the Passport Office, the doctors are no longer able to countersign paperwork for passports.  The doctors are also not able to complete Power of Attorney forms or Mental Capacity Forms. These will need to be completed by Specialists in that field.

NOTE: 

Please be aware that the GP has the right to refuse any non-NHS service requests.
