Well Women Service
Women have routine cervical smears with the practice nurses. All women between 25 and 64 will be invited for these when they are due.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to complete a Travel Risk Assessment Form at least 12 weeks before you travel.
Travel Vaccination Form
It is important that this form is completed at least 12 weeks before you travel, so that the Practice Nurse can determine which vaccinations are required. If you are travelling within 8 weeks you will need to visit a travel clinic to obtain vaccinations.
Travel health consultations are private consultations. Not all travel vaccines are included in the services provided by the NHS. Some vaccines have to be ordered in on a Private Prescription. These vaccines incur a charge which includes the cost of the vaccine + administration charges for consultations per visit/vaccine. The Practice Nurse will discuss this with you at your initial appointment.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the website or links below:
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
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.
Some services are not covered under our contract with the NHS and we are therefore unable to provide them. Examples include the following:
There is no obligation under the GMS regulations for a practice to provide occupational health services for patients. That responsibility rests with the employer under Health and Safety legislation, and in occupations where there is a risk to health from any form of work related infection it is the employer's duty to assess that risk and, if present, to protect the workforce.
The same applies for healthcare students who often request a hepatitis B immunisation prior to, or on entering, a course. Medical Schools are legally responsible for providing a full occupational health service to their students and applicants.
