We are especially interested in promoting good health and preventing illness. The following are some preventative health issues:
Diabetes – We have in house dietitians who can help you with your diabetics plans
Weight Management – We have in house dietitians who can advise you with your calories and food in take for a healthier lifestyle.
Smoking – We strongly encourage a no smoking policy. Quit smoking is supported by all staff and we are happy to assist you in any possible way. This is no doubt that smoking is a health hazard.
Vaccination & Immunisation – we strongly encourage all children to complete their immunisation and this can be arranged through the doctor. We also support immunisation of all adults for tetanus, diphtheria and polio, Hepatitis A/B and Influenza.
Cholesterol – It is important to have this checked, particularly if you have a family history of heart disease, have diabetes or smoke.
Pap Smear Test – This test detects change in the cervix (neck of womb), before cancer develops and so can be easily treated. It is recommended that all women between the ages of 18-70 should have pap smear tests every 2 years, unless otherwise advised by the doctor.
Breast examination – Breast self examination should be performed by the woman every month, annual breast examination should be performed by the doctor annually and mammogram should be performed every 2 years (especially women over 50 years).
Blood Pressure – High blood pressure can increase the risk of heart attacks and stroke. All adults should have their blood pressure checked yearly or more often if it has ever been raised.

If you are too sick to come to the surgery the doctor can visit you at home. Requests for house calls should be made direct with the doctors so that he can assess the urgency of the problem. Please remember however, that house calls are time consuming and the doctor does not have the same facilities available to treat you as he does at the surgery. They should therefore only be requested if you are genuinely too sick to come to the surgery.
In the interest of good medical care, the doctor will normally need to see you for a repeat prescription because often a physical examination may be required and the exact name of the medication, dose etc will need to be confirmed. If you inform the receptionist the doctor will try to see you without you having to wait too long.
For purposes of privacy, accuracy and confidentiality as well as medico-legal reasons, we prefer not to give pathology results over the phone. You may misunderstand or misinterpret the meaning of any results without a professional consultation. In some circumstances, the doctor may agree for you to phone for results and he will advise you of this when he orders the blood test.
Medical certificates are legal documents. They are available only if you are present for the consultation with the doctor. We cannot issue a certificate without you actually seeing the doctor and we are not permitted to backdate certificates.
To ensure the best treatment of your condition, the doctor prefers to discuss your condition before referring you to a specialist. This is the case even if you have seen the same specialist before. You should always check with the specialist’s receptionist when you make the appointment whether a new referral is required and obtain this before seeing him / her.
In the event of a lost referrals and a need to reissue, the centre reserves the right to charge an administration fee.
Care plans and EPC allied health sessions available. Comprehensive health assessments also available.
We have a large range of travel vaccines available. Please call us to book an appointment.
The doctor will take phone calls relating to you or your family’s health. If he is seeing patients when you call, he may need to call you back.
Phone calls need to be kept short and to the point in order to minimise disruption to the doctor’s schedule. Keep in mind that the time the doctor spends with you on the phone is time taken away from the patients waiting at the surgery to see the doctor. This may mean longer waiting periods for these patients.
Fees may be charged at doctor’s discretion.
