Clinics and Services
We offer a range of clinics and services including those below. For more information, please visit our Health Review and Assessment Clinic.
We offer a full range of immunisations by appointment with our practice nurse. We do not normally provide immunisations required for occupational reasons as these are best provided as part of a company’s occupational health policy. However, we will provide an immunisation service for companies provided this has been agreed in writing.
By appointment with a practice nurse. All women aged 25 – 49 will be offered a smear test at least every three years and women aged 50 – 64 every five years. For the over 65s, screening will only be offered to those who have not been screened since age 50 or who have had recent abnormal tests. The test can be carried out by one of our practice nurses or by your own doctor. You must have received a letter from the primary care agency to book an appointment.
Child Health and Immunisation
The health visitors hold a baby clinic every Tuesday of the month between 10:00 – 12:00 for weighing and general advice. Please be aware that due to the current situation, these are not currently running.
Chronic Disease management
We recommend that patients with conditions such as COPD (including asthma), diabetes, coronary heart disease, epilepsy and hypertension should be seen at regular intervals by either their own doctor or one of our specialist practice nurses. Patients will be invited to attend review appointments for these conditions.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit an annual review of your asthma symptoms, please complete our online Asthma Review Form.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a COPD assessment, please complete our online COPD Assessment Form.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a epilepsy review, please complete our online Epilepsy Review Form.
6 week checks by a GP. We will contact you with an appointment at the appropriate time for the six week check. We also offer booster diphtheria/tetanus/polio immunisation for school leavers by appointment with the practice nurses.
Family Planning and Women’s Health
We offer a full range of contraceptive services including IUCD fitting. Appointments are available in our family planning clinic which normally operates on Monday afternoons, or by seeing one of our trained doctor’s.
Flu and Pneumococcal Vaccinations
We recommend an influenza vaccination for the over 65s, and patients with chronic heart, lung, liver or kidney disease, diabetes or asthma, carers and residents of nursing/rest homes. For details of clinics, please contact reception at the end of September, for details of our annual Flu Clinic Saturday.
We also recommend pneumococcal vaccination for prevention against a common form of pneumonia for the over 65s and patients with chronic heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes or asthma. This can also be given at our annual flu clinic.

- Heart disease

The midwives working at the practice are part of the Royal Surrey County Hospital midwifery team, and hold antenatal clinics at the practice. The doctors and midwives provide full antenatal and postnatal care. Please make an appointment with the midwife between eight and nine weeks of pregnancy, who will continue your care throughout your pregnancy.
We provide a range of minor surgical procedures. These include removal of lumps, joint injection and cryotherapy (freezing) for skin problems. There is a weekly minor surgical list carried out in our modern treatment room.
Our practice nurses do not provide a full minor injuries service, although they are able to carry out an initial assessment and treatment where appropriate, but only for our own patients. There is, however, a Minor Injuries Unit at Haslemere Hospital, which is open 09:00 – 17:00, Monday to Friday.
Travel Advice and Immunisations
Travel advice and immunisations can be obtained by booking a 20 minute appointment (per person) with one of the practice nurses.
Please make your appointment to discuss your travel requirements at least 8 weeks before you intend to travel.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription, eg malaria, 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.
- Malaria charge – £10 per private prescription (as of the 1st June 2014)
If you are travelling abroad please make sure you contact us in plenty of time to arrange any vaccinations that may be necessary.
