Annual Health Review

Happy Birthday!

Don’t forget to book your annual review!

Covid-19 has shown us how much we need to streamline and prioritise our resources. That is why we are implementing a birth-month recall system for most long-term conditions and annual reviews.

As of August 2022, we plan to implement the birth-month recall system. Patients with one or more long-term conditions will receive an invitation to book an appointment just before their birthday month.

To bring all patients in line with their birth month, it may mean that you are asked to attend, even if you have had a review within the last 12 months. We still need you to attend.

The Goal

As a result, patients will have to attend fewer appointments as multiple tests and checks can be performed at the same time.

What are long term conditions?

The practice already invites certain groups of patients in for an annual review of their conditions.

This includes patients who have:

  • Respiratory conditions
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Epilepsy

What we do
As your GP surgery we play a significant role in managing your long-term condition. We believe in working with you and specialists in the community to provide holistic, personal, and high-quality care.

Long term conditions or chronic diseases are conditions for which there is currently no cure, and that are managed with drugs and other treatments.

All patients with a long-term condition should have an annual review (or ‘health MOT’). This could involve one single appointment or multiple appointments depending on which long term condition(s) you have. If a blood test or blood pressure check is required, you will be booked with a Health Care Assistant, if further checks are needed, these will be booked with either a nurse/GP/Advanced Nurse practitioner depending on the type of consultation you need.

Your medical history and medications will be reviewed at your appointment and together we will consider how we may improve your health/management of your long term condition. This may include health advice, medication changes or referrals to a community service.

Cervical Screening

You will receive an invitation from the local Screening Programme Administrator advising you when you are due to attend.

For further information about cervical screening from NHS UK.

Weight Management

Get Healthy!

Home Visits

Requests for visits will be taken by receptionists who will ask you questions about your symptoms. This will let us decide the urgency of the call.  You may be asked to speak to a doctor who will decide whether a visit is necessary and with what urgency. 

Please telephone the surgery before 10:30 if you think you will need a visit.  

Visits are normally carried out between 12:00 and 14:00 (It will not always be possible for you to be visited by the doctor of your choice). If deemed necessary you may be visited by the PCN community Paramedics instead of a doctor.

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.

Please Note – under NHS Regulations it is not your right to have a visit. It is up to the doctor to decide if one is necessary.

Medication Review

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see or speak to a doctor, clinical pharmacist, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review their regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. You may also need blood tests to monitor your medication.  Failure to have a review could result in the GP stopping or reducing the medication currently being prescribed.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.


Physiotherapy services are provided here at the practice by Simon Margot. Simon works with us every Tuesday and Thursday.  You can book an appointment with Simon by calling our reception team on 01487 830340

Extra Services

Most of our doctors and practice nurses have special interests or skills, allowing us to offer extra services such as Rheumatology (including joint injections), ENT, women’s health and respiratory medicine.

If you think you would benefit from one of these services please discuss it with the Receptionist who will give you the appropriate appointment.

Non-NHS Services

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges.

Examples include the following:

  • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
  • Fit to Fly Letters
  • DVLA reports
  • Subject Access Requests
  • To Whom in May Concern Letters

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. Private work does not take precedence over our routine practice work and therefore will be completed when time allows. Please allow at least four weeks when asking for any private work to be completed.

Please note all ‘To Whom it May Concern Letters’ also attract a fee. These should always be requested from reception and not during a consultation with the Doctor.

Payment in advance is required.  This can be by either bank transfer, cash or cheque.  Unfortunately, we do not currently accept debit/credit cards.

Foreign Travel

We will be happy to give advice on all medical aspects of foreign travel, including vaccinations.

Please fill in the travel questionnaire below and submit to the practice. Our nursing team will assess your needs and then contact you to arrange an appointment. Please return your form to us in good time – at least 8 weeks before you are due to travel.

Travel Vaccinations

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

Europe Europe & RussiaNorth America North America
Central America Central AmericaSouth America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
Caribbean CaribbeanAfrica Africa
Middle East Middle EastCentral Asia Central Asia
East Asia East AsiaAustralasia  Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make arrangements  as early as possible – at least 8 weeks before you travel.  A travel form needs to be completed so that the practice nurse can review your arrangements and plan what is required.

Sometimes these vaccines have to be ordered as they are not necessarily stock vaccines. Often a second appointment is required and this 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 will incur a charge to the patient. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Travel Appointments in the Surgery

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the form on the link below and bring it to the surgery as soon as you book your holiday.

A member of our travel team will review the form and plan what vaccinations you may require and offer general travel advice.
