Immunisation and Travel Advice
Routine immunisations required within the UK, eg tetanus and polio, can be given by appointment at nurses' general clinics.
Regular health clinics are run by the nurses. Here they give advice on aspects of healthcare for people planning to travel overseas, but note that appointments should be made well in advance of proposed travel. A charge may be made for some vaccines given at these. As appointments for these clinics at short notice may not be available, patients urgently requiring vaccines may be advised to contact local commercial travel advice clinics.
Eastern Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group Services
Several services are provided by independent providers, funded by the ECCCG. These health professionals work as part of our extended primary care team. These treatments are available only on referral by doctors for specific services, such as:
||Chiropody (High risk patients only)
||Community Psychiatric Nurse
The practice uses the computerised NHS e-Referral system. Under this system the Doctor or Nurse Practitioner referring you will discuss your referral with you and offer you a choice of hospitals. You will be then given details so that you can make your appointment yourself on a day and at a time that suits you.
These are for services provided by the Practice that are not covered within the contract with the NHS, for which charges are made. They include:-
|Private Medical Certificates
||Insurance and Legal Reports
||DVLA Fitness to drive Reports
||“To whom it may concern” letters
|Completing Private Medical Claim Forms
||Holiday cancellation claim forms
||Fitness to Travel Certificate
||Power of Attorney
||Life Insurance Proposal
Please allow 14 days for the completion of these forms/letters.
Details of the charges, which are updated annually in line with BMA recommendations, are displayed on the noticeboard on the right of the Reception desk and on Private Charges page. A helpful Information leaflet called "A Guide to Non-NHS Services", written by the Patient Group is available on our website and can be downloaded.
This is the best option for coughs, colds, sore throats, flu, upset stomachs and general aches and pains. Visit the website NHS Choices for advice about self-care.
