Family Planning And Maternity Care
All aspects of family planning and maternity care can be discussed with your doctor. Emergency contraception is also available. Weekly antenatal clinics are held at the surgery by midwives.
We undertake routine immunisations and child development checks. Health visitors run ‘drop-in’ weighing and advice clinics on a regular basis at various local sites.
Disease Prevention And Chronic Disease Clinics
Regular clinics for chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure, are run by the practice nurses and doctors. We offer routine vaccinations including influenza and pneumococcal vaccination. We also monitor our patients on Warfarin.
Two of our practice nurses run regular clinics to give vaccinations and advice to those travelling abroad. Four to six weeks' notice is needed prior to travel, otherwise the practice nurse may not be able to offer an appointment. A form will need to be completed and three working days allowed for the nurse to check your medical history and what is required for the area being visited. The nurses do not discuss travel vaccine requirements over the telephone. If you do not leave enough time before your travel dates, and need immunisations, appointments at the surgery may not be available. Information about private travel clinics (at your own cost) can be obtained at reception.
Minor Surgery And Joint Injections
Minor operations and cryotherapy are done by the doctors, or the nurse practitioner, in the surgery. Some cases may be referred to the East Surrey Hospital.
Private Medicals And Reports
Certain medicals, reports and forms are not covered by the NHS and therefore incur a charge. Please ask at reception for details.
Disclosure Of Information
All health professionals and administrative staff understand the need to maintain confidentiality. At all times great care is taken to ensure that high standards of confidentiality are maintained in respect of all information held about our patients. Any information shared with other agencies is used anonymously so that no one outside of the surgery has access to your personal details. All consultations are confidential and information will only be shared with fellow health professionals and staff involved in the care of the patient. No information will be given to a third party (including close family members) unless authorised in writing to do so by the patient. This includes information as to whether the patient has attended the surgery.
