It is important for all patients with ASTHMA, COPD, or CHD to have a regular assessment. Our specialist nurses carry these out in normal clinic time at both surgeries. Appointments can be made via telephone.
All diabetic patients should have regular checks to maintain good health and prevent complications of diabetes. We have 2 nurses who specialise in diabetes and can see you in normal surgery. We recommend you have an annual review and to be seen in between as required.
We suggest a cervical smear is carried out every 3-5 years when appropriate. A specialist nurse usually carries these out in ordinary surgery times. The screening service is for all women aged between 25 and 64 years old.
A doctor can do certain minor surgery procedures at the surgery. Please ask any doctor/nurse about theses procedures.
We particularly recommend this for patients with heart disease, chest or kidney disease and any other chronic disease, including diabetes.
It is recommended for everyone over 65 years old and for residents of nursing and rest homes. Please contact the reception staff in late September for details of our flu vaccination clinics.

We recommend full immunisation for all pre-school children; immunisation clinics are held on Monday afternoons at Weston and Tuesday morning at Harefield, however other appointments can be made with the nurse in her daily surgery. Please check the following points before bringing your child to the surgery.
There has been some adverse publicity in the press about immunisation in children, however, remember your child is at greater risk from contracting the disease than he or she is from suffering a reaction to immunisation.
If the answer to any of the following questions below is yes, then tell your doctor or nurse.
You can view the recommended children's vaccination schedule on this website

Medical examinations for a special purpose, e.g. HGV, PSV, and Insurance Medicals, can be arranged through the receptionist. The NHS does not pay for the examinations so there will be a charge for this service. Please check with receptionists for details.
Doctors are being asked to sign an increasing number of forms. If these are non-NHS, a fee will be charged. It is therefore worth finding out if someone other than a doctor can sign the form for you. Your specialist can sign private medical insurance forms.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.

Although many results are ready within a few days, some may take longer. Be sure to ask your doctor how and when you will learn the results each time you have tests done. This will help to avoid anxiety and unrewarding telephone calls.
Results can be requested after 2pm.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
