Please book your first appointment as early as possible, preferably at least six weeks before departure. You will be asked to complete a travel questionnaire for each member of your party – please help us by returning this two days prior to your appointment, particularly when your itinerary is complex.

Over-75 Health Assessments
Patients Aged 75 And Over will be invited for a health assessment in the month of their 75th birthday. If you are housebound then arrangements can be made to visit you at home. We will endeavour to contact all patients over 75 who have not been seen every three years or you can make an appointment with our Health Care Assistant for a check-up if you have any concerns. GPs will recall patients who are on regular medication or with a chronic disease at regular intervals.
Women aged 25-50 are advised to have a smear test every three years and those aged 50-65 every five years. Please contact reception for an appointment with the practice nurse.
Appointments can be made with any doctor for advice on, and management of, contraception. Once a method is established you are advised to have an annual check-up and a smear every three years. This can be booked with the doctor or the practice nurse.
Vaccination is recommended each year in line with Department of Health guidelines. See here for more information from the NHS.
Smoking Cessation Advice is offered for patients who want to stop smoking. Please make an appointment to see the GP or Practice Nurse and take that first step to a healthier lifestyle
