Providing child health and developmental checks, as well as general advice and support
Self-Care is very important for ALL patients, but also for those who are informal carers looking after family, friends or neighbours.
GP consultations that are currently taken up for minor ailments could be used for people with more serious or long term conditions and those recovering from illnesses and injuries. There are estimated to be around 15 million in England with a long term health condition and this figure is likely to increase with the growing ageing population.
Self-Care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way. It can be anything from eating healthily, doing some exercise, managing common conditions (like headaches, colds and flu) or living with a long-term health problem, such as asthma or diabetes.
Please find below various fact sheets and guidance leaflets for you to refer to, should you have any concerns: -
Below are a selection of leaflets outlining the practice's administrative information.
Printed copies of these can be found in our practice waiting areas.
Please contact the practice for advice on Travel Vaccination requirements as soon as possible after arranging your trip. It is important you advise us of any travel abroad as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. Many vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. We may not be able to help you at all if you leave things too late.
Some vaccine require more than one dose and the protective effect of most vaccines takes 10 days to develop. Yellow Fever vaccination certificates only become valid 10 days following vaccination.
Standard travel vaccinations are provided on the NHS for patients registered with the surgery, however, a fee will be charged for other vaccines (e.g. Rabies, Hepatitis B). Patients from other surgeries will be charged for all vaccines.
Prescriptions for anti-malarial medications are issued on a private basis as these are not covered by the NHS.

PLEASE NOTE PAPERWORK CAN TAKE UP TO 4 WEEKS TO COMPLETE
It’s important to understand that GP’s are not employed by the NHS, they are self-employed and they have to cover their costs – staff, building, heating, lighting etc. – in exactly the same way as any small business.
When a Doctor signs a certificate or completes a letter, report or form, it is a condition of remaining on the Medical Register that they are only to sign what they know to be true. In order to complete even the simplest of forms, the Doctor might have to check the Patient’s entire medical records. Carelessness or an inaccurate report can have serious consequences for the Doctor with the General Medical Council or even the Police.
The BMA recommends that GP’s tell patients in advance if they will be charged. It is up to the individual Doctor to decide how much to charge. All surgeries have lists of fees available.
Paperwork can take up to 4 weeks to complete as time spent completing forms and preparing reports take the GP away from the medical care of his or her patients. Most GPs have a very heavy workload – the majority of GPs work up to 70 hours a week and paperwork takes up an increasing amount of their time.
