Child Health Surveillance Clinics
All children are invited to see the doctor for a health and development check at about 6 weeks.
Later checks are carried out by the health visitors and school nurses.
All children under five years of age are encouraged to have the recommended immunisations.
Appointments for clinics are held weekly at each surgery and all appointments are sent directly to the parents/guardian from the Health Authority.
NHS Cambridgeshire & Peterborough has created a Guide to Childhood Illnesses for parents and carers across the area.
This guide covers everything parents and carers need to know about important subjects such as vaccinations, common ailments and issues, and where to go for help if your child has a medical issue.
We will call you to book your child’s immunisations when they are due. We work on information provide by Child Health please contact us if you don’t hear from us.
If you chose not to have your child vaccinated please let us know. You maybe interested to view the information about vaccinations on the guide below.
If You Choose Not to Vaccinate
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.
We will be pleased to give advice on all medical aspects of foreign travel, including vaccinations.
Please ask to see the practice nurse in good time – at least eight weeks before travel.
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.
PIP (Personal Independence Payment)
For information and guidance on eligibility including how to claim PIP
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 & Russia||North America|
|Central America||South America & Antarctica|
|Middle East||Central Asia|
|East Asia||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.
