The practice holds regular minor surgery clinics for appropriate smaller operative procedures. These are by referral only.
Most of the doctors in the surgery carry out joint injections.
If you are attending surgery for a joint injection, please print off, read and sign and read the joint injection consent form and bring this with you when you attend for your appointment. Thank you.
Joint Injection Consent Form
We have our own smoking cessation clinics at the practice. If you want to give up the habit, Judith, our smoking cessation nurse, will give you information, encouragement and support.Travel Services
The practice nurses will advise on travel risks and protection and administer travel immunisations where necessary. Some travel immunisations are not covered under the NHS and are charged for privately. Welfare Benefits Advice
The Citizens Advice Bureau provides an outreach service at our surgeries with regular sessions to give advice on benefits etc. Please ask at reception for details.
Health MOT checks are offered to selected patients aged 40 - 74 years. You will receive a letter if you fall into this target group.
The surgery hold drug and alcohol support sessions with a specialist addiction worker.
It is important that you let us know if you are a carer so that we have a good understanding of your situation and can put you in touch with the services and support on offer.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make a 20 travel appointment with the practice nurse.
Please bring as much information with you as possible about where you will be travelling to and staying while travelling.
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 may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.

Childhood Immunisation Schedule
To order a Med 3 Certificate (previously known as a sick note) please make your request up to a week in advance. In most cases your Med 3 will be processed on the date it is due, however, the doctor may feel that you need to be assessed before the fit note can be issued. If this is the case we will contact you to arrange an appointment.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.

Mandeville Surgery has a ramp to the front door and a doorbell to summon assistance if necessary. There is a hearing loop at reception, a lift for access to first floor facilities and a disabled toilet on the ground floor. We also have a wheelchair on the premises for occasional use within the surgery - please ask if you need to use this.
If you know you are pregnant - you have missed a period or have a positive pregnancy test result - please collect an antenatal pack from the surgery. Leave your details with reception and the midwife will contact you when you are between 8-10 weeks pregnant. Our midwives are Alison Pelling and Pam Alphonse.
The more you know about your pregnancy and your options, the more you are likely to feel in control. The information given here is based on The Pregnancy Book, which your midwife should give you at your first appointment.
