Guide to our appointment system

CLINICS

 

Family Planning And Contraception

 

A full range of contraceptive services including intra-uterine devices and cap fitting are available from the doctors and practice nurse. Confidential emergency contraception and preconception advice is also available. If you are planning a pregnancy it is a good idea to see the practice nurse who can advise you about having your rubella (German measles) and MMR immunity checked. It is also recommended that you take folic acid from the chemist from before conception until the first three months of the pregnancy.

 

Antenatal Clinics

 

These are held at SureStart by appointment only which can be made through Dovecote House on tel. 0115 8835500.

 

Cervical Smears

 

We recommend that women aged 24½-50 should have a cervical smear every three years and five yearly from the age of 50 until 60 years old. Please make an appointment with one of the practice nurses for this.

 

Foreign Travel

 

Our practice nurse offers immunisation and health advice on foreign travel. Please enquire at reception at least eight weeks prior to departure. Chilwell Meadows Surgery is an authorised Yellow Fever vaccination centre. There is a fee payable for this and some other travel immunisations.

 

Minor Surgery

 

Joint injections and treatment of simple skin lesions and ingrowing toenails are all available during consultations or, if necessary, in a minor surgery clinic run by Dr Churchill.

 

Please consult your doctor to discuss this.

 

Teenage Health

 

Our practice nurses and doctors are happy to see teenagers for discussion of health issues on a confidential basis, irrespective of age. Whilst we are happy for parents to accompany younger teenagers we may encourage young people to develop some independence by seeing them alone for at least part of the consultation.

 

Teenagers can also make appointments to be seen alone.

 

Phlebotomy clinic

 

We hold three phlebotomy clinics a week (Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday) with our phlebotomists. A phlebotomist is a person who is trained specially just to take blood.

 

Health Promotion and long term condition management

 

We are committed to improving the health of our patients. The practice nurse will see patients with asthma, diabetes and heart disease for monitoring and education. In addition to this she is available to discuss other health issues such as diet and weight control, stopping smoking and will carry out well person checks (including cholesterol monitoring) if warranted. We also offer an NHS health check for people aged between 40 and 75 to assess risk of cardiovascular health problems. Contact Reception for details.

 

Flu Clinics

 

There is an annual clinic held on a Saturday morning in October for this. Otherwise an appointment can be made with the practice nurse. Current recommendations are that anyone over 65 or who has heart, kidney or lung conditions should have an annual flu immunisation. A pneumonia immunisation is also available for these individuals but does not usually need repeating.

 

Screening services

 

The practice actively recommends health screening. Please refer to the following websites for further information:

Non-NHS Services

 

Like other professionals your doctor is entitled to charge a fee for work which is not paid for by the NHS. This includes insurance reports, private sick notes, holiday cancellation forms and letters to non NHS organisations eg leisure centres, school and work places. Please see a summary of the fees here or the notice in the waiting room. An explanation for the fees can be found here.
