We can offer the following services, by appointment:
We have an physiotherapist who does sessions at the surgery on Friday mornings.
We have in-house phlebotomy every Tuesday morning at the surgery.
We have in-house counselling by an external psychologist. If you think you may benefit from counselling please see a GP, who will be able to refer you.
Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT) is also available in Hertfordshire, and patients can self refer to the Wellbeing team: http://www.hpft.nhs.uk/help-for-adults/adult-services/epmhs/
We provide a full range of ante and post-natal care for our patients and share this care with our local midwives and hospitals. Local midwifery services are now run on a team basis and clinics are run at the surgery on a weekly basis, on Thursday mornings. You may also be offered appointments for antenatal care at local Children's Centres and at Watford General Hospital. If you have just found out that you are pregnant you can complete a self-referral to the maternity team at Watford General Hospital: https://www.westhertshospitals.nhs.uk/ourservices/womens_services/maternity/selfreferralform.asp
Routine cervical screening in this area is undertaken according to national guidelines. Smears are performed by nurses and female doctors. When booking an appointment please inform the receptionist that a smear is to be done.
Family planning services are provided by all the doctors and nurses. We are happy to advise on contraceptive methods.
The practice provides routine screening at 6-8 weeks of age to all our youngest patients. This will coincide with the first immunisations and the routine postnatal consultation. This examination forms part of the programme of health checks offered by the health visitors and ourselves.
You will be sent a letter with the date to bring your child for his first check and for his/her immunisations. We are keen that all our young patients should be fully protected.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements at least 1 month before you go away. This will include discussing 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.

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.
Please note: GPs can no longer sign passport application forms.
