Patients are seen by our community midwife on Mondays between 1.30pm and 3.30pm.
The baby clinics are run by the health visitors who are based at Great Oaks Clinic and held every Wednesday between 2.00 and 3.30pm.
Offered at different times. Please check with the Receptionist.
Contraceptive care is provided by all our Doctors and Nurses.
Minor surgical procedures are carried out by Dr Salako. Feel free to seek further advice on this should you need to.
Counsellors are available at the Centre. Please contact the Receptionist for details.
If you are aged 75 years or over, you should be seen annually either by your doctor or practice nurse. If you cannot visit the Centre, a home visit will be arranged.
We strongly recommend that you make an appointment at least eight weeks in advance of your holiday. Please be aware that a charge may apply for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS.
Furthermore not all vaccines are available at the Centre, in which case a visit to a travel clinic would then be necessary. Private prescriptions for anti-malaria drugs can be arranged at a fee.
An influenza vaccine is particularly recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes, asthma, residents of nursing and rest homes and any patient over 65 years old. Please contact the reception staff in September for details of the vaccination dates. If you are unable to attend the surgery, a home visit can be arranged with the Community Services.
Please inform the surgery if you do not wish your child to be vaccinated.
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.

Patients can obtain their test results by telephoning the Centre between 11.00 -12.00 midday and 3.00 - 4.00 pm during which time the Receptionist will be able to assist.
For information, urine and blood tests normally take around five days to be received whilst x-rays can take up to three weeks.
Please note that enquiries about tests ordered by the hospital should be directed to the hospital and not the Centre.
