Family Planning

The practice offers a full family planning service including coil fitting, Implanon fitting, cap fitting and emergency contraception.

 

Child Health Surveillance

All the doctors in the practice carry out a programme of health and developmental screening in conjunction with the health visitors. Parents are invited to register their new baby for child health surveillance that continues until five years of age.

 

Antenatal Clinic

Friday 1.30 - 4.30pm. Patients are seen by the midwife at the clinic by appointment.

 

Baby Clinic

The baby clinics are held at Hertford County Hospital on Tuesday afternoons for child development checks and immunisations and to allow an opportunity to discuss other problems, eg sleeping, feeding and child health worries with a health visitor. Childhood immunisations are carried out during routine nursing surgeries by appointment.

 

Asthma Clinic

This is run by the practice nurse by appointment.

 

COPD Clinic

This is run by the practice nurse by appointment.

 

Travel Vaccinations

Travel vaccinations are done by appointment system with the nurse. In the first instance a Travel Questionnaire should be requested from the surgery, this is available to download or in reception once completed and returned we ask you to allow at least 48 hours to enable the nurse to determine what vaccinations you need. Ideally this should be planned six weeks before travelling; however, if time is limited, the nurses can still offer valuable advice.

 

Flu Vaccination

An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients with asthma, heart, neurological disease, immuno suppression, liver, lung or kidney disease, diabetes, carers, patients over 65 years of age and residents of nursing and rest homes. Please contact the reception staff in September for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment. If you are housebound, a home visit will be arranged to undertake this facility.

 

Services Not Covered By The NHS

The NHS does not cover medical examinations for insurance purposes, pre-employment, certain driving licences and fitness to travel or participate in some sports. Please ask the receptionist for details of our comprehensive list of private fees and make a special appointment, if required.

Certificates other than the standard DSS certificates may incur a fee. This also applies to reports to private medical companies and the signing of passport forms.

 

Self-Certification

Doctors’ certificates are only needed after the first week off. For up to one week of sickness self-certificates should be used which your employer should be able to supply. If you need a certificate for the first week for any reason, this will be a private note for which there is a charge.

 

Hearing Advisory Service

The practice holds a Hearing Advisory Service, this is run by an outside organisation. John runs the clinic the last tuesday of every month. No appointment needed, he is here from 2.00pm and will see each patient that arrives in turn.
