We are pleased to announce that Potterells is now using the electronic prescription transfer system. This should be a simpler process for issuing medication and we hope it will be more secure and will mean fewer prescriptions going missing. If you would like to make use of this service please inform your regular pharmacist
Chronic Disease Reviews
Our patients with any of the above conditions will be regularly reviewed by our GP’s and practice nurses.
When you find out you are expecting a baby then book a routine appointment with a GP to arrange to be booked for your antenatal care with the midwives. Subsequent to booking your care is taken over by the midwife team and all your antenatal appointments and arrangements are made by them.
The local community midwives have booked antenatal clinics on Tuesday afternoons. Mostly these take place at Potterells, but if you are due a scan you will be seen at the Peartree Clinic at the QE2.
First childhood vaccines are done at the same appointment as the first developmental check, which is at eight weeks of age. The immunisation schedule is described here.
The Child Health Clinic is held on Wednesday afternoons for advice and support from the Health Visitors on all aspects of child health and development and to weigh baby.
Travel Health and Immunisations
Immunisation can be arranged with our practice nurses by appointment, ideally two months before departure. Before you meet the nurses we ask you to complete a Travel Questionnaire. This is available from reception and must be completed at least 5 working days before you require an appointment for your travel immunisations. The questionnaire can also be found on the above Travel Vaccinations tab
A number of our GPs will perform minor operative procedures for removal of skin lesions, removal of ingrown toenails and the like. Please see a GP in a routine surgery who can then arrange an appointment at our Tuesday afternoon clinics. Please note we do not treat warts/verrucas.
Available from October each year for all patients over 65 years and those in high-risk groups such as diabetics, asthmatics and those with heart and chest disease. Supplies of the vaccine usually arrive at the end of September.
Special clinics will be arranged and advertised at the surgery and here on the website near the time.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please complete this form and print it out before coming to see the nurse.
