Please note that our priority is the provision of NHS services and your health. Additional services we offer may not be immediately available in certain circumstances so please check with Reception regarding availability first.
All women aged 25 to 50 yrs who have not had a hysterectomy should have regular cervical smears every three years. For women aged 50 – 65 the interval should be every five years. If possible please see the practice nurse for these to be done. Contrary to common belief, your sexual orientation does not affect the need for regular smears.
If you do not want to have a smear and want to opt out this time or be removed from the screening list, please complete the form and return it to us. If at any time you change your mind and want a smear done, do not hesitate to contact the surgery.

These can be arranged by filling out a travel form in reception or download below. The practice nurse will consult your records and write out your personalised immunisations programme which can usually be carried out by appointment. Please leave plenty of time before travelling, as some vaccinations need to be given at least four to six weeks before travel.
Please do not telephone the nurses directly as travel health advice is constantly changing and requires the latest recommendations which change frequently (and so require research).
A fee will be charged for vaccinations that are not covered under the NHS.
