We have now introduced 5 minute face to face consultations for patients with a single, urgent issue to be seen on the day. These appointments complement 10 minute face to face appointments and 5 minute telephone consultations and are intended to help meet the ever increasing patient demand, especially during the winter months.
To ensure that patients are booked for the right type of consultation for their specific problem, the Partners have trained the reception team to ask all patients who call in for brief details of their problem. From that information, they will be able to book the correct appointment type with the correct clinician. Patient confidentiality will be maintained to the existing high standards and the surgery will be able to operate more efficiently.
Patients are requested to co-operate with this change that has been introduced to offer the best and most appropriate level of clinical care to all patients.
Run by the midwives. Newly pregnant mothers should come into the surgery to collect a Maternity Pack and complete an Ante Natal Referral form. They can then ring the midwives to make an appointment. There is no need to see a GP.
All the Doctors give contraceptive and family planning advice. Dr Parbat and Dr Boucher are family planning trained and can fit implants and coils. If you would like to consider an implant or coil as a method of contraception, please book an initial consultation with either of them.

Dr Anwer performs minor surgical procedures in a dedicated clinic at the surgery. If you have a symptomatic skin lesion or lump, please see him during a routine appointment and if appropriate, he will book you into his clinic. Both Dr Anwer and Dr Parbat perform joint injections for shoulder, knees, elbows and wrists.
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 required on the links below
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.
