All our practice nurses are available for health checks when taking the contraceptive pill.
We also now have one practice nurse who is trained to fit contraceptive implants – please ask for details from reception.
If you require a contraceptive coil kindly discuss this with any doctor at your routine appointment.
We operate a walk-in service for patients who would like to have their blood pressure measured. There is a facility in the waiting room for you to take your own blood pressure reading. The machine will produce a printout which should be given to the receptionist who will pass it on to your doctor. If you prefer to have a member of the nursing team to take your blood pressure rather than use the waiting room facility, please make an appointment.
The GPs recommend that all babies, children and young adults should accept the vaccinations offered by the NHS.
For up to date details of which vaccinations are offered and for what ages, we advise that patients check for details on the NHS Choices website.
We recommend that all adults should have a booster tetanus injection every 10 years. After a certain number of booster vaccinations, you will no longer require them. The nurse will be able to advise you on this. If you have never had a tetanus injection it is important to have an initial course of three injections.
Seasonal flu vaccinations are offered to all patients over 65 years of age and to adults and children in certain ‘at risk’ categories. If you are unsure of your eligibility, please contact the surgery and we will be pleased to advise you.
We are also pleased to offer other services including:
A new easy to use online tool has been launched in Hampshire to help with people struggling with weight loss. This is called POWeR (Positive Online Weight Reduction). It has been developed by experts at Southampton University. Hampshire County Council are making this service available free of charge to adults in Hampshire with a BMI of 25+. POWeR will help support you with your lifestyle and will help you to build healthy eating and physical activity into your routine. Anyone over the age of 18 can access POWeR for 12 months once they have registered for the programme. This can be accessed by visiting the POWeR website powerhants.lifeguidehealth.org.
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.
