Looking after your ears

If you are worried you may have a skin cancer, please tell the receptionist that this is your concern so that you can be seen quickly by the right person. Please be aware that Dr Whybrew works part time and has dermatology teaching commitments and will sometimes be on annual leave so you may need to see a different GP – this is fine as all the GPs have been trained to be able to identify skin cancers and, if they are in any doubt, they can refer to the hospital dermatology service or to Dr Whybrew.

If you are travelling to a foreign country for any reason, please telephone the surgery to book a telcon with one of our practice nurses as soon as you know you are going away. This will allow enough time to give appropriate advice and arrange any vaccinations required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below or alternatively visit fitfortravel for more information.
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.
Charges apply for certain administrative work not covered under the NHS. A fee payable in advance of the finalised paperwork will be charged according to our scale of fees which can be obtained from reception.
If you wish to have any work completed which is not covered under the NHS please ask a member of the reception team for a "consent form for non-NHS admin" to sign to confim that you agree to pay the appropriate fee.
Please note that these requests may take several weeks to complete.
