By appointment only, unless otherwise stated.
Personal Medical Services are supplied in the traditional way by our doctors, but we also supply specific services as detailed below usually run by a nurse Practitioner with the back-up of a doctor.
A nurse Practitioner is a nurse who has extra training and experience in the management of chronic illnesses as well as the treatment of acutely ill patients.
Menopause, HRT, Family planning, Smears Tests.
This is a secondary prevention clinic available to those patients who have had a problem with their heart or circulation. They are invited to attend a clinic annually by letter or referred by their doctor. There is the opportunity to discuss lifestyle issues, smoking cessation, have blood pressure checked, blood taken to measure cholesterol, glucose levels and when necessary.
The clinic allows time for an in-depth discussion of high blood pressure and its associated problems. A full examination and blood tests will be performed and, where appropriate, treatment may be prescribed. Patients with established hypertension are encouraged to attend on a regular basis so that their condition can be monitored.
Childhood and Travel Immunisation. Flu and Pneumococcal Immunisation.
Treatment room, Midwives, Health Visitors, District Nurses, and Nurse Advisor to the Older Person.
Immunisation as above. Nurse Advisor to the Older Person. We have two Social Workers who are attached specifically to our practice.
General Advice is available from the doctors and nurses of the practice but more specific advice, including the prescription of medicines is available from the NHS Smoking Advice Service 0800 1690169 who run clinics in various venues in the Wyre Forest Area.
These clinics are generally run on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
Advice is available at other times but please be specific when requesting an appointment.
This clinic is for patients with asthma and chronic obstructive airway disease (chronic bronchitis and emphysema).
Immunisation, Childhood Surveillance, Parentcraft, Baby clinic, Midwives, Health visitor, Immunisation Schedule.
This clinic provides diabetic patients with the knowledge, skills and support that enable them to lead a full and healthy life. Patients are encouraged to attend on a regular basis.
Certain services such as private sick notes, insurance claim forms and some medical examinations are not covered by the NHS for which there is a charge for. Please ask at reception for details.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
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)
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
