In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a wide range of clinics and healthcare services:
Dr Alexander has a special interest in diabetes. He runs a clinic where he is assisted by practice nurse Doreen Brown. All diabetics are asked to attend at least once a year for a full check.
Asthma clinics are run by our practice nurses who have undergone special training in asthma and chronic chest complaints. Patients are encouraged to attend at least once a year.
This is advice on how to look after yourself before you get pregnant. Please ask your doctor for further information.
If you think you are pregnant, please arrange an appointment with our midwives. Your care will be shared between your doctor, our midwives and the hospital. We have an antenatal clinic run by our midwives, on Thursday afternoon between 13:30 – 16:30.
Our practice nurses administer baby injections on a Thursday at a well baby clinic. We recommend that babies have immunisation against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, haemophilus influenzae B, meningitis and polio at two, three and four months and are immunised against measles, mumps and rubella (German measles) at 12 - 15 months. If your child is unwell, it is more appropriate for them to be seen in surgery rather than at the well baby clinic.
We recommend that pre-school children have a booster against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and polio at four years.
Consent for Vaccinations
Would all parents/legal guardians of newborn babies please note that their informed written consent must be given prior to the commencement of a vaccination programme for babies. A grandparent or other person cannot do this. Once written consent has been given for a programme to commence, another person may then bring babies to the clinic for vaccination.
Women aged between 25-49 years are invited to have a smear every three years. Women aged between 50-64 years are invited to have a smear every five years.
Please book an appointment via reception to see our practice nurse for a cervical smear.
Steroid injections (not knees) are administered at the surgery. It is necessary to see Dr Moore or Dr Hugh Alexander in surgery beforehand.
Social prescribing is a new service that connects people to a range of non-clinical services available within the local community.
Please ask reception, the GP or nurse for more information or view Social Prescriber page on "further information" tab.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with a local travel centre 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 may be required.
PLEASE NOTE ROSLEA SURGERY DOES NOT PROVIDE A TRAVEL VACCINATION SERVICE.
PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL TRAVEL CENTRE.
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.
If you leave a form which needs attention from a doctor (holiday cancellations, insurance forms, sick notes etc.) it will only be ready for collection after five clear working days. This will be longer for doctors who work part-time. When you hand in the form the receptionist will advise you when it will be ready. We encourage payment to be made by cheque for forms which incur fees (holiday cancellations, insurance forms etc. and a deposit of £10.00 is payable in advance). Please ensure you have completed your part and signed consent where applicable.
