The aim of promoting health is to try to identify risk factors at an early stage and prevent them from causing ill health. For this reason we will ask about drinking and smoking habits and measure your blood pressure and weight from time to time. This is especially wise in people with a family history of heart disease, diabetes or stroke.
We offer advice on controlling obesity and stopping smoking. Disease management and health promotion clinics are run by our nurse practitioner and health promotion nurse and appointments may be arranged at the reception desk for the following clinics:
More specific clinic for ladies requiring smear tests, but also includes a well person check.
Certain illnesses require a planned follow-up programme and, in line with the Department of Health's guidelines, we offer full planned care to our patients with asthma, diabetes, heart disease in particular. All the above clinics are nurse-led by our health promotion team.
In accordance with Department of Health guidelines, we recommend influenza plus pneumonia vaccination for patients with diabetes, chronic heart, lung or kidney disease and residents of nursing and rest homes. The flu vaccination is available from late September.
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.
With effect from Monday 21st August 2017 we are introducing a deposit scheme for anyone wishing to book an appointment for travel advice / travel vaccinations.
The deposit is £20.00 per person and is non-refundable should the patient not attend.
Appointments for travel advice or vaccinations are no longer taken over the telephone but can only be booked in person at the Practice where a deposit will be taken. This deposit will be deducted from your overall bill or refunded for attending patients.
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 and bring with you when you see the nurse.

Worcester City GP Practices have recently been supported by the Clinical Commissioning Group and the County Council to pilot a social prescribing service for patients registered to one of the 10 Worcester City GP Practices.
Social prescribing is a way of connecting health and social care users to sources of support, information and advice to improve their wellbeing, tackle social isolation, and prevent illness.
Worcester City GP Practices now have access to two Social Prescribers who will be responsible for delivering a person-centred holistic service, supporting clients to improve their health and wellbeing by signposting to and connecting with local services and assets in their community.
The Social Prescribers will support the client over a time limited period to achieve the goals outlined in the Social Prescription, whilst encouraging and supporting clients to self-manage their condition(s) and develop healthier behaviours and lifestyles.
Further information on this service can be found on the Clinical Commissioners website, the link for which is below:
