In addition to GP consultations the practice offers patients a wide range of clinics and healthcare services:
Please book a nurse appointment if you need any of the following services:
Antenatal Care - we provide a shared antenatal care service with The Royal Free and University College Hospitals. Pregnancy can be confirmed by a simple urine test purchased at the chemist. If you discover you are pregnant, you can self-refer to the local antenatal clinics. Please check on the hospital websites or ask reception for self-referral forms.
Chronic Disease - at present we do not run separate clinics to monitor chronic disease, eg diabetes. Patients with chronic medical problems and those on repeat prescriptions will be asked to book a review appointment with the doctor or nurse in normal surgery time. We may ask you to have a blood test at the hospital before the appointment.
Baby Clinic - after you have had your baby, the health visitor will contact you.
Please book a six-week check for mother and baby with reception.
A clinic is run by the health visitor every fortnight between 14:00 – 15:30.
You will have an opportunity to discuss feeding issues and your baby can be weighed.
Please do not bring acutely ill babies to this clinic. Children's immunisations are given by the practice nurse.
Remember to bring your baby's red book with you at all times.
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.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations here
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.
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.

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf
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.
