Debbie works every other Monday and Tuesday. During this time, she will provide the following services:
Our Health Care Assistants are in the treatment room Monday to Friday between 08.00 and 12.30. They are able to take blood, measure blood pressure, ECG, new patient health checks, check urines, certain injections etc. Appointments are required for any of the above services.
To ensure that your child is developing/progressing and is reaching the development ‘miles stones’ your baby will be seen at regular intervals. When your baby is 6 to 8 weeks old you will be sent an appointment to see the doctor for a development check. After this your Health Visitor will arrange follow up visits.
Your Health Visitor will be able to advise you were you will be able to access your nearest baby clinic
All doctors undertake full ante-natal and post-natal care in conjunction with the Community Midwife.
The doctors are able to refer patients to the First Step Mental Health Team; they in turn will arrange appointments/advice for further care and treatment.
If you have decided to stop smoking and need that little bit of extra help and support, please visit any of the Murrays chemist and they will be able to offer advice and support.
If you are a carer for one of our patients, we would like to know. We have information about support and help that is available to you. Please let the receptionist know.
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.

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
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.
