July 2017 Newsletter
Welcome to our latest newsletter. Please open the above link to read
We would like to welcome Dr Hannah Carey who is our foundation year 2 trainee. Dr Carey will be with us from August until December 2017.
We would also like to welcome Dr Rieesa Mustafa who is out specialist trainee (year 2). Dr Mustafa will be with us from August 2017 until January 2018.
Our nurses have been specially trained and offer a wide range of services. They can advise on health promotion, diets, female problems, contraception or many other problems that you may need help with. They are involved in the monitoring of patient chronic disease management i.e. diabetes, asthma, COPD and hypertension.
They also run our cervical smear service and any appointments for this test should be made with one of the nurses and not a doctor.
We like to protect our child population by doing their routine vaccinations ourselves. We hold vaccination sessions each month at the surgery. If you cannot attend a vaccination session, our practice nurses will be happy to carry out your child's vaccinations.
We offer the service of travel vaccinations and advice. We are one of a few designated 'Yellow Fever Vaccination Centres' in the Greater Manchester area. See the Travel Vaccinations section for more information.
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.

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
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.
