General medical services to permanent and temporary patients registered with the practice, and those requiring immediately necessary treatment within core hours (08:00 - 18:30).
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.
Child Health Surveillance
The practice health visitors regularly check your child's development, ensure your child receives all the necessary immunisations and are available to answer your questions in the baby clinic. Alternatively you can contact them via Deal Community Clinic on: (01304) 865460, or 865457.
Family Planning Services
Including advice on all forms of contraception, emergency contraception, coil fits and counselling about both male and female sterilisation.
We hold our own family planning clinic however, details of all the clinics held in Deal and Dover can be found below.
A wide range of minor operations are performed by the doctors in the surgery by appointment only.
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.
For details of the nearest MASTA clinic phone: 0870 60 62782.
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.
More information about travel vaccinations is available via the Travel Vaccinations tab.
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.
More information about travel vaccinations is available on the above tab.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please read the travel advice provided under the Clinics and Services section of this website and fill out the online form below before coming to see the nurse for your travel vaccinations.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Please note, private work is completed in the doctor's own time, and therefore we ask patients to allow at least two weeks for the completion of these forms.Top of Form
