Diabetic Clinic - by invitation
Diabetic clinics are run by our specialist diabetes nurse, Linda Burgon, on most Wednesdays. All diabetic patients are invited to this clinic except for those who are solely under the care of the hospital clinic.
For further details, please contact Deborah Burbridge, the receptionist who organises the appointment for further diabetic clinics. From time to time, doctors will also see their diabetic patients for their check-ups.
Reminder letters are sent out to patients who are due for an asthma check-up.
A smoking cessation advisor runs a weekly clinic at Hawthornden, currently on a Monday afternoon. Please telephone reception to make an appointment.
Child Health Clinic
Regular checks on development for the under fives are offered by the health visitors. They are also available for health advice at various locations. Click here for more details.
Minor Surgery Clinic
The removal of skin tags, cysts, ingrowing toenails and the injection of joints can be undertaken at the surgery, saving you a visit to hospital. These minor operations are performed by Dr Buxton, Dr Wolfin and Dr Newman. Please make an appointment to see one of them or your own doctor if you think you require any of these services.
Travel Clinic - by appointment
Travel clinics are normally held twice a week and are run by our practice nurses. Please contact the surgery for more details as clinic times may vary.
Before an appointment, patients are requested to complete a travel form, giving details of the area of travel, type of travel etc. to enable the nurse to check what immunisations are required. Forms can be obtained from the reception desk.
Baby and Childhood Immunisations
Ann Allman currently runs our Baby Immunisation Clinics on the second and fourth Mondays in the month, from 3.30 - 5.30pm. Routine immunisations are undertaken at this clinic and reminders are sent out by the South Buckinghamshire NHS Trust.
Well Person Checks
These can be arranged with the practice nurse by appointment. This check includes screening for heart disease, high blood pressure and offers general health advice.
Family Planning Advice
We do not currently hold a regular family planning clinic but full family planning advice may be obtained by a consultation with Dr Hussain or with your registered doctor.
Psychological Therapy Services
Healthy Minds is a service provided by the NHS to deliver psychological therapies across the whole of Buckinghamshire – it is particularly valuable for any person experiencing anxiety or depression. You can be referred to Healthy Minds by your GP and patients can often be seen here at the surgery in Bourne End. This short-term therapy service is available free of charge.
We are also able to refer patients to a private Counsellor and there are also charitable bodies in the area who offer counselling and psychological services.
Private Medical Services/Non-NHS Examinations
Medical examinations for special purposes, eg pre-employment, insurance medicals, elderly drivers etc, can be arranged by appointment.
Some services fall outside the NHS and a charge is usually made for these. This includes the completion and signing of private medical insurance claim forms, private medical certificates, signing passport applications and various special medical examinations for sport, insurance or employment.
Details of these services can be obtained from the reception or secretarial staff of the practice together with a note of the current charges.
