Advice on contraception including coil fitting and provision of free condoms.
We also provided the contraceptive implant. Please see the Nurse Practitioner for advice.
Please note that we no longer provide testing for sexually transmitted diseases.
We no longer provide contraceptive services to patients registered at other GP Practices.
We provide blood testing service from the Practice - you will no longer be able to attend the hospital for any blood test requested by your GP (unless we have not been able to get your blood)
We employ two nursing assistants who provide services including phlebotomy (blood testing) on a daily basis. The doctor will decide what is an appropriate length of time to wait and this will be indicated to the reception staff who will book a suitable appointment.
The NHS does not pay for some of the services we provide. These include private sick notes, insurance forms, holiday cancellation forms, medical reports, fitness to travel certificates, private prescriptions and some vaccination services. Our fees for these services, which are in line with BMA approved national guidelines, are displayed in the surgery.
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.

Network Development Framework
NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group has invested additional resources into General Practices to improve capacity. The improvements are to enable practices to provide additional services to patients in an effort to reduce inappropriate attendances at A&E.
We have utilsed the investment by providing extra GP sessions per week & providing extra appointments with our Healthcare Assistants
