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 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.

The Wolverton Centre offers sexual health advice Tel: 0208 974 9331 www.sexualhealthkingston.co.uk
Please call 0208 979 3253 if you wish to enquire about test results. If your doctor would like to see you to discuss test results, a member of the practice team will contact you to make an appointment. If you have any concerns, you should make an appointment with your doctor.
If you have given us your mobile number then we will try to text you to let you know your results have been received. This means you don't need to keep calling and wondering if your results are back. We will also make a short comment about the result e.g. Your results are back and no action is required or Your results are back, your cholesterol is slightly high, please diet and repeat in 6 months.
Please note that sometimes results are returned to us in batches on different days. This means you may get multiple notifications even when you have only had one sample of blood taken. Please remember that the comment refers only to that set of results and not to any wider investigation or treatment plan that your clinician has organised - call us for clarification if necessary.
If you have not given us a mobile phone number then you should ring us to find out about your results.
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.
Benefits of medical/health screening:
It might take the form of a physical examination and/or appropriate tests, with either a wait for results and a consultation or an immediate result.
Screening is able to identify conditions such as cancers as early as possible, to improve the success of treatments and make the treatments less aggressive, as in breast and bowel cancer.
What is available on the NHS?
The NHS offers screening, free of charge, to identify pre-existing health problems of which you may not be aware, nor be exhibiting any symptoms. The NHS screening may be as part of a national programme for specific groups or may be opportunistic screening when a patient discusses or relates a problem with their GP.

You will be sent a letter inviting you for a smear test. The tests are performed by a nurse in the treatment room at the surgery.

Please note that you are under no obligation to see your named accountable GP and may continue to see any of our clinicians.
