2018 WALK-IN FLU CLINICS

Yes it is that time of year again! We have our deliveries of vaccines, including the child nasal vaccine, so will be holding our walk-in clinics for eligible patients on the following dates:

Saturday 13th October 08.30 - 11.00hrs at Chobham surgery

Saturday 3rd November 08.30 - 1100hrs at West End surgery 

There is no need to book - just walk in. This year we have the new vaccines as recommended by the World Health Organisation. These clinics provide a valuable source of extra funding to the practice which is used to support other services we provide to our patients. By having the vaccine elsewhere you are denying us that funding.

EXTENDED ACCESS CLINICS

This practice is a member of the local GP Confederation (NICs). The federation is now providing early evening and weekend GP appointments at the Bedser Hub which is located in the Woking Community Hospital. These appointments are pre-bookable through either of our receptions.

NICs have also contracted with LIVI to provide video consultations, on smart phones and tablets, with an NHS GP on behalf of the practice. Download the LIVI app and follow the on screen instructions. 

THE CQC HAVE RATED THIS PRACTICE AS GOOD 

We now have free Wi-fi available in both our waiting rooms - select NHS Free wi-fi and log on.

Patients can now book GP appointments, request repeat medication and view their medical records on line. Go to the on-line access page under the appointments tab and complete the registration form.

Clinics & Services

Nurse_BPThe practice runs a range of health promotion clinics and medical services. Appointments are necessary for most clinics – check with reception staff if uncertain. The practice acknowledges both male and female sensitivities when intimate examinations are necessary.

We have well women appointments at Chobham and West End surgeries where both a female doctor and nurse are available for consultation. Male patients can request to see a male doctor when they make a routine appointment. Patients can have access to their registered GP and nurses across both surgeries. 

Minor Surgery

Many minor surgical procedures are undertaken at the surgery to save long waits for hospital treatment. Consult your doctor first to discuss whether the operation is necessary and to arrange an appointment for the minor surgery clinic.

Several clinics are available for specific conditions and to help increase your awareness of good health and leading a healthy lifestyle. For details of these clinics please ask at reception. Examples of clinics available are: asthma, diabetes, blood pressure, heart disease and minor operations.  

Cervical Smears

A vital test to prevent the development of cervical cancer and detect it at an early stage, we recommend all women from 25 – 50 to have a smear test every 3 years and for women 50 – 65 every 5 years. Clinics are held at both Chobham and West End surgeries. These are mostly done by the practice nurse in her surgery. If for a particular reason you prefer your own doctor to perform this test in their normal surgery, this can be arranged. Smears can also be taken in the well women clinics.  

Breast Screening

Breast self-examination is encouraged. Mammograms are performed 3 yearly from the age of 50 - 70 years old and you will receive a routine invitation from the Jarvis Centre. 

Immunisations and Flu Vaccinations

It is important to keep vaccinations up to date in adults and children. Patients in ‘at risk’ groups and those over 65 years of age should consider a yearly flu immunisation and also a ‘once in a lifetime’ pneumococcal vaccination. Both are free under the NHS.
