Home visits are for the totally housebound or very seriously ill. Please telephone before 10.30am and be prepared to give the receptionist some indication of the nature and urgency of the problem. The doctor will usually wish to speak to you before arranging to visit.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre
We are here essentially to care for you when you are unwell or think you might be. So, please feel free to contact us if you think you need our help.
In addition we offer the following services to help specific groups of people:
Our practice nurses are trained and experienced in review of patients with chronic medical conditions. We recommend you have an appointment with our nurse if you suffer from High Blood Pressure, Coronary heart disease, Stroke, Epilepsy, Diabetes, Asthma, COPD, or Chronic Kidney Disease. This should help to keep you healthier in spite of your existing illness and to prevent further complications, events or worsening of your illness.
If you wish to have help and guidance about stopping smoking please make an appointment with our nurse who will assist you.
We perform minor surgical procedures by prior appointment.
We offer family planning services. This includes fitting of implants and emergency contraception.
We recommend chlamydia screening for everyone in the age range of 16 to 25 years if you are sexually active. It is done by sending a urine sample to hospital laboratory. This is part of a national campaign for detection and treatment of chlamydia infection. Please make an appointment with our practice nurse if you wish to be screened for chlamydia.
We recommend all ladies between 25 and 49 years of age to have a smear test every 3 years. Age 49 - 65 are recommended a cervical smear every 5 years. This helps prevention and early detection of cancer of the cervix.
Our midwife runs antenatal clinics at Wollaston every Friday by prior appointment. She also runs a new booking clinic on a Thursday morning for newly pregnant ladies.
Child health surveillance is available at Wollaston and Bozeat by prior appointments. The receptionists will arrange appointments for these.

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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
A number of medical examinations, reports including HGV/LGV, Taxi and PSV's, insurance forms and certificates are not available on the NHS, but may be provided by the GPs privately for a fee. These may be requested via the receptionist, who will inform you of the relevant charge.
The fees for non-NHS services are as attached. Private Medical and Letters Fees List.pdf
