Newly Registered Patients
When you register you will be invited to attend for a medical within three months of joining the practice. This is essential as it provides us with important information prior to the arrival of your medical records, which can take some time.
These clinics are run by the nurses and are by appointment.
A full range of contraceptive services is offered by the practice, including coil fittings.
Diabetic, Weight, Asthma And Smoking Cessation Clinics
These are run by nurses and health care assistants in conjunction with the doctors. Please ask your doctor if you think you may be eligible.
Child Health And Immunisation
Babies and pre-school age children can be immunised at both surgeries; please telephone for an appointment with the practice nurse. Please do not bring an ill child to these sessions to see the doctor, as other children might be put at risk. If the clinic times are very inconvenient, immunisations can be given at other times by your doctor by appointment. We prefer all our children to be vaccinated at the surgeries to help maintain continuity of care and also enable records to be kept of any problems which may arise.
Antenatal and postnatal care is carried out by both the doctors and the midwives by appointment. The midwives run clinics from Edenbridge.
Most of the doctors are able to perform small surgical operations at both surgeries, although they may ask you to see another partner for certain operations. Please discuss this with your doctor.
Medical examinations for special purposes, eg life insurance, school entrance, elderly drivers, pre-employment, fitness to undertake sports, fitness to travel etc are undertaken at all the surgeries. When you book your appointment, please tell the receptionist the type of medical you require. A fee is payable for all non NHS examinations. The receptionist can advise on this.
The practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and to vaccinate where appropriate. It should be noted that not all travel vaccinations are free within the NHS; travellers should be prepared to purchase the protection required against conditions that do not occur in the UK. The rate currently advised by the BMA will be payable upfront before the vaccination is ordered and the course to administer.
Please complete the form below at least two months prior to travel and return to the reception team. A nurse will contact you to make an appointment as soon as the requirement for your travel has been assessed.
