These are held every Tuesday from 8am to 1pm. The initial booking is booked though the surgery reception and thereafter the midwife will make a follow-up appointment for you whilst you are at the surgery. Your first booking appointment will take approximately one hour.
These clinics are held as and when the need arises. If, after your consultation with the GP, it is decided that you need minor surgery, a suitable time will be arranged with yourself, the practice nurse and the GP.
The health visitor holds regular clinics. These clinics are run in conjunction with the practice nurse. Either phone the health visitor on 01865 458430 or the practice reception for appointments.

A lot of the things you could at one time only do by visiting the practice in person, or by telephoning us, you can now do online. Not only can this save you a visit or a phone call to the practice, it also means you can do things when we are closed, at a time more convenient to you, from your computer, tablet or phone. For example you can:
Here's a video of a patient talking about how online access has helped her.
Registering for online services is easy - it's like registering an account for anything online (e.g. to shop or to sign-up for social media). The only difference is that, because we need to be very careful with your medical data, we must ask you to come in to the practice with photo ID and proof of your address.
Once we have confirmed your identity and asked you to complete a short form with reception, we will provide you with a 'registration token' (i.e. a temporary password) that you will be able to use to set up your account. Upon registration (where you will choose a permenant password) you will then be sent an email as an additional security step from which you can click on a link to activate your account.
The website for registering and using your online account is: https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk
If you have any queries about making a particular appointment or are having difficulties ordering a medication, please contact the practice in the usual way (e.g. telephone 01865 242657).
If you are having problems using the website there is a very useful help page you can visit at: https://support.patient-access.co.uk/
If you think the website may not be working you can tweet the helpdesk at: @ptaccesshelp
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.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the questionnaire below before coming to see the nurse. You can print off the questionnaire and drop it off by hand, or you can save a copy and then email it to the nurse as an attachment, putting 'travel questionnaire' in the subject box of the email - send to firstname.lastname@example.org
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
