General medical services
Three Yearly Checks
Patients who have not been seen by a health professional for over three years can request a health check with one of our practice nurses. During this check you will undergo a routine physical examination e.g. height, weight, blood pressure and urinalysis, along with an update of your general health.
Over 75 Years Check
Patients over 75 years of age, who have not been seen by a health professional for over twelve months, can request a health check with one of our practice nurses. During this check you will undergo a routine physical examination e.g. height, weight, blood pressure and urinalysis, along with an update of your general health. Where a visit to the surgery would be inappropriate a home visit will be arranged.

Travel Advice and Immunisations
Travel immunisations are given by our practice nursing team. However, patients are required to contact MASTA (Medical Advisory Services for Travellers Abroad) to obtain up to date information regarding the vaccinations required for their destination of travel. Patients should also be aware that certain vaccinations are not free and you will be required to pay for these when you attend for your vaccination.

Remember to bring your MASTA travel advice records with you to the appointment.
Ensure you allow plenty of time to arrange your vaccinations before travelling as some courses take many weeks.
