Dr Carmen Chan will be joining our team of GPs from 2nd January 2018.
We would like to offer her a warm welcome to the Practice, and look forward to working with her.
In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a wide range of special clinics and healthcare services:
We provide a confidential range of teenage services. Our nurses can give advice on routine and emergency contraception, pregnancy, lifestyle issues, general health concerns and sexually transmitted diseases.
We are here to listen, not to tell. All consultations will be treated with confidence, and only if a nurse feels you are at risk will she ask for your permission to discuss your issues with a fellow colleague.
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 fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
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.
Please allow at least one week for the completion of private letters. Any forms to be completed may take more time.
Don’t Fear The Smear!
Grosvenor Medical Centre currently has over 250 women between the ages of 25-64 who have not had a smear in the last 5 years.
Cervical screening saves the life of 4,500
women in England every year
Women screened between the ages of 35-64 are thought to have a 60-80% lower risk of being diagnosed with cervical cancer in the 5 years following the test, compared to women who haven't been screened. The test is free, quick and saves lives.
If you have received a letter inviting you for a smear test, please do not ignore it – book in with nurse Laura or nurse Jennie who will be happy to answer any questions you have or discuss any worries beforehand.
Cancer Research UK also has nurses who you can call freephone on 0808 8004040 or email via their website https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/ with any questions about cancer or the NHS cancer screening programmes.
