The 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to download, print & fill in our travel questionnaire. Please hand it in to the surgery before making an appointment with the practice nurse.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 may well be required with the practice nurse to actually receive further 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.

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Certain services provided by your doctor are not covered by the NHS and you may be asked to pay a fee in line with British Medical Association recommendations, e.g:
If you have any queries about fees or any other private medical services, please discuss them with reception. A copy of the current scale of fees is available Here.
Risk profiling: How your NHS records are used
This practice is taking part in a new NHS service that helps your GP to spot whether you need more help to manage your health. The service is called “risk profiling”.
Using information from your health records, a secure NHS computer system will look at any recent treatments you have had in hospital or at this surgery, and any existing health conditions that you have, and alert your doctor to the likelihood of a possible future hospital admission. This may include screening service and technologies that help us search all of our patient’s records to identify our patients that would most benefit from a particular treatment, sometimes by linking the information we hold with information about you from other organisations providing your care. The clinical team at the surgery will use the information to help you get early care and treatment where it is needed.
The information will be seen only by qualified health workers involved in your care. NHS security systems will protect your health information and patient confidentiality at all times.
If you don’t want your information being used in this way, or have any other concerns, please contact the practice.
