Our practice operates an 'advanced access' system, which means that you can telephone early in the mornings to secure an appointment the same day. Whilst we will try to make your appointment with the clinician of your choice, this cannot be guaranteed.
Out of Hours
If you need urgent attention or advice please telephone 01905 422883 or 01905 616977 and an answer phone will give you the number of the GP Emergency Service
Full pregnancy care is available at the surgery. In nearly all cases the majority of your antenatal care will be carried out in the practice by the doctors and midwife with just a few trips to the hospital.When telephoning for an antenatal or postnatal appointment please tell the receptionist that this is what you want so that you can be booked in to see the nurse and the doctor at the same time. It is helpful if you remember to bring a sample of urine in a clean bottle to the surgery.
All aspects of family planning advice are covered. Both the doctors and practice nurses are qualified and able to discuss this with you. Also available is counselling about sterilisation, coil fitting and pre-pregnancy advice.
Smear tests for women involve an examination of the cervix (neck of the womb) to check for changes before cancer develops. These changes can be treated and cancer prevented. We recommend that all women aged between 25 to 65 who are or have been sexually active, should have regular smears. If you are aged 25-49 you should have one every three years and every five years if you are aged 49-65.Smears are carried out by either the doctors or practice nurses. You will be sent a reminder when your smear is due. Smears are very important, so even if you do not wish to have a smear, please come and discuss the matter with the doctor and do not just ignore the letter.
Appointments for a cervical smear must be booked between day 14-16 of your cycle ie counting day 1 at the start of your period.
We offer a full childhood immunisation service at the practice which is carried out by our practice nurses.
Patients Aged Over 75
During the course of the year the doctor or nurse may run through a simple questionnaire to check your health. If necessary, you will be given a physical check-up. If you have not been seen during the course of the year, you can request this check-up by making an appointment or, if you are unable to attend the surgery, you may request a home visit.
All doctors are registered to undertake minor surgical procedures such as removal of infected or ingrowing toenails, or removal of unsightly warts, etc. Having a minor surgical procedure done by your doctor means you do not have to join the hospital waiting lists. The procedures are normally carried out at Henwick Halt Medical Centre.
Physiotherapy is available at both surgeries and is arranged through your doctor.
New Patient Health Checks
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.
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.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
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.To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.

You do not require a doctor's certificate for any illness lasting six days or less. Your employer, however, may require you to complete a 'self-certificate' which you can obtain either from your employer or local DSS office (it is not obligatory to see a doctor for this). After the seventh day you will need a doctor's certificate and you need to be seen by your doctor.
For a private doctor's sick note the fee charged is £29.50
