Regular clinics are held each week. Patients are seen by the midwife at the clinics by appointment and also by the doctors during surgery hours.
Sue Frawley, our named Health Visitor, is involved in the healthcare of children under the age of five and can be contacted on 0300 790 0243.
We recommend that children should be immunised against Polio, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Mumps, Measles, Rubella and some strains of Meningitis. The Child and Family Community nurses or doctor will be pleased to discuss any queries that you may have.
Immunisation is the safest and most effective way of protecting your child against serious disease. Having your child immunised and keeping the immunisations up to date will protect them from potentially life threatening illnesses such as septicaemia and meningitis.
Visit the NHS Immunisation website for more information.
Chronic Disease Monitoring
Our practice nurses review patients with a chronic condition annually within the patients birthday month. This helps to ensure the best possible standard of health is maintained.
Well Woman Clinic
Women’s health issues, including postnatal checks, are dealt with by all doctors during normal surgery hours but arrangements may always be made with one of our female GPs if this is preferred. Cervical smears are dealt with by our practice nurses.
Appointments for minor surgical operations such as removal of skin tags, cysts and moles, joint injections etc, can be made when recommended by a GP.
Please complete the travel form (available online from our website) at least eight weeks prior to your holiday to ensure adequate cover. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is held at reception and on our website.
A seasonal influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes, pregnant, immunosuppression, carers and residents of nursing and rest homes, and all patients over 65 years old.
Please check our website or contact the practice in September for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment.
Mental Health Services
We liaise closely with the Community Mental Health team at The Tunbridge Wells Hospital and can organise Psychology appointments if needed.
The practice works closely with the Community Mental Health Services based at Highlands House in Tunbridge Wells.
The local team includes psychologists, counsellors and support workers. Referrals are made via your GP.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
- Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
- Insurance claim forms
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes
- Vaccinations and certificates
- Vasectomy services (please see Vasectomy Clinic info)
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.
