All of our patients have an accountable named GP who is responsible for overall care. If you are unsure who this is please ask next time you visit the practice. If you have a preference to which GP that is please contact the practice.
Furzton Medical centre will introduce a new role of a nurse practitioner from April 2016 , if you have a minor illness we would recommend first you speak to your local pharmacy and if required book an appointment with our nurse practitioner there are a number of conditions she is able to prescribe for please check with reception upon booking.
Do we have your upto date contact details ? please ensure you provide the practice with any changes
In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a range of clinics and services:
If you are interested in giving up smoking the practice has a smoking cessation advisor who runs clinic’s on both sites once a week with a very high success rate in helping you quit. If you are interested in seeing one of our smoking advisors, please ask at reception for an appointment.
At Furzton Medical Centre from April we will have a Nurse Practitioner who is able to see patients over the age of 5 for Minor Illness and other conditions, please check with reception if your appointment requires a GP as you may be offered an appointment sooner with our nurse practitioner.
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.
