Health Checks For The Over 75s
Registered patients over 75 years who have not been seen in the previous 12 months may request a consultation. For patients who are genuinely house-bound because of their medical condition a home visit by a healthcare professional may be arranged.
Private Medical Examinations
These may be required for LGV licensing, for elderly driver's insurance or for life assurance purposes. These can be arranged by contacting the receptionist who will offer you an appointment with one of the doctors at a convenient time. This will be outside normal surgery hours. Some fees are payable by patients and our charges are set at or below the level recommended by the British Medical Association.
Psychological Therapy and Counselling
The practice is able to offer access to counselling and psychological services with the help of our local Gateway service. You can refer yourself by phoning 01202 633583 but you will be asked your NHS number which can be located on your registration card.
Well Woman and Well Man Screening
Our practice nursing sisters offer health checks to any patients who have not been seen by the doctors in the previous three years. If you would like a routine check please phone the reception to make an appointment. For patients interested in information regarding the menopause, we recommend you look at www.menopausematters.co.uk
