How To Get Involved

To find out how to get involved with our FREE services you can get in touch with us in the following ways:

Home Visits

Please only ask for a Home Visit if you are unable to attend the surgery due to illness or infirmity.

When you or your carer telephones the surgery to request a Home Visit the receptionist will ask for a brief description of the problem, and send the request to the doctor.

The doctor will then telephone you to give you advice or resolve the situation over the telephone or arrange a time to visit you.

NHS Health Check

The NHS Health Check is a free check-up of your overall health. It can tell you whether you’re at higher risk of getting certain health problems, such as:

During the check-up you’ll also discuss how to reduce your risk of these conditions and dementia.

If you’re over 65, you will also be told the signs and symptoms of dementia to look out for.

How will the NHS Health Check help me?

You will have your individual cardiovascular risk (risk of getting conditions related to the heart or circulation) calculated and explained to you.

While the cardiovascular risk levels vary from person to person, everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some types of dementia.

At your NHS Health Check you will be given advice on how to prevent them.

Your NHS Health Check can detect potential health problems before they do real damage.

What happens at the NHS Health Check?

An NHS Health Check takes about 20 to 30 minutes.

The health professional – often a nurse or healthcare assistant – will ask you some questions about your lifestyle and family history, measure your height and weight, and take your blood pressure and do a blood test. The blood test will be done either before the check with a blood sample from your arm, or at the check.

Your blood test results can show your chances of getting heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes.

If you’re over 65, you will also be told the signs and symptoms of dementia to look out for.

You will then receive personalised advice to improve your risk. This could include talking about:

How can I arrange to have an NHS Health Check?

You’ll be invited for a free NHS Health Check every 5 years if you’re between 40 and 74 years of age and do not already have a pre-existing condition.

If you’re registered with a GP surgery that offers the NHS Health Check, you should automatically get an invitation. Do not worry if you have not been invited yet – you will be over the next 5 years.

Alternatively, your local authority will send you an appointment letter explaining where you have to go for your NHS Health Check.

If you’re not sure if you’re eligible for an NHS Health Check and would like one, or if you are eligible but have not had an NHS Health Check in the last 5 years, ask at a GP surgery for an appointment.

Do NHS Health Checks work?

The health conditions picked up by the NHS Health Check are, when added together, the biggest cause of preventable deaths in the UK, with around 7 million people affected by them.

In its first 5 years, the NHS Health Check is estimated to have prevented 2,500 heart attacks or strokes. This is the result of people receiving treatment after their Health Check.

The latest research suggests that:

  • for every 30 to 40 people having an NHS Health Check, 1 person is diagnosed with high blood pressure
  • for every 80 to 200 people having a Health Check, 1 person is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes
  • for every 6 to 10 people having an NHS Health Check, 1 person is identified as being at high risk of cardiovascular disease

You do not have to wait for an NHS Health Check to learn more about taking care of your health.

Please Note

As this work is not contracted by the NHS, the decision is made by the Doctor regarding whether requests can be accepted.

The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability. Private work does not take precedence over our routine practice work and therefore will be completed when time allows.

Prices are subject to change.

If you are requesting copies of your medical records then this will be provided within 28 days, followed by the GDPR guidelines.

We can only accept cash (the correct amount) or by cheque (Priory Fields Partnership). We will also need proof of photo ID on arrival of collecting your information.

Please be aware all these services should be requested through writing and not in a consultation with the Doctor.

Social Prescribers

Social Prescribing is when Healthcare Professionals refer patients to support in the community, in order to improve their health and wellbeing.

Social Prescribers give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and take a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.

Social Prescribers also support existing community groups to be accessible and sustainable and help people to start new groups, working collaboratively with all local partners.

Social prescribing works for a wide range of people, including people:

  • with one or more long-term conditions
  • who need support with their mental health
  • who are lonely or isolated
  • who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.

When social prescribing works well, people can be easily referred to link workers from a wide range of local agencies, including general practice, pharmacies, multi-disciplinary teams, hospital discharge teams, allied health professionals, fire service, police, job centres, social care services, housing associations and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations. Self-referral is also encouraged.

Social prescribing complements other approaches, such as active signposting.  This is a ‘light touch’ approach where existing staff in local agencies provide information to signpost people to services, using local knowledge and resource directories. Active signposting works best for people who are confident and skilled enough to find their own way to services after a brief intervention.

Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to contact the practice so that nurse can look to see what vaccinations you need.

We ask that you give us at least 8 weeks notice so that we can get you booked in, we understand that can’t always be possible but please be aware we might not be able to get you an appointment booked in time.

Please be aware that we only do certain vaccinations and you may need to go to a travel clinic for the rest.
