The Doctors are happy to perform minor surgery which can save hospital referral. A cryotherapy clinic for the treatment of verrucas and warts is held on a regular basis. Please contact the surgery for details.
If you have a minor ailment e.g thrush, sore throat, cough, cold, hay fever, cold sores etc it can be treated at the local chemist under a scheme called Pharmacy First. All you need to do is go to a participating chemist and ask to see the Parmacist under the Pharmacy First scheme. The pharmacist will then assess and treat you with medication which can be bought over the counter but if you do not pay for your prescriptions you will not be charged for the items given to you.

Our Practice Nurses are always happy to talk over your travel plans and to give you advice regarding relevant vaccinations and any medication e.g Malaria which you will need while on holiday. Please contact the surgey at least 6 weeks before you travel. You will need to complete a pre travel questionaire.
The nurse will then contact you by telephone and book you an appointment if you require any vaccinations. You can download the travel advice leaflet below which gives general advice when travelling abroad.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required 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.
