Women who are sexually active or have ever been in the past and are aged between 24-65 years are routinely called up for a cervical smear test every 3-5 years.
We have women doctors and nurses at the practice who are happy to perform the test for you. It must be done whilst you are free from bleeding if you are still having regular periods. The procedure takes about 5-10 minutes and is usually painless. We are now using the new method of smear preparation and detection called Liquid Based Cytology (LBC) which has the advantage of reducing rates of inadequate smears thus reducing your anxiety and the results are more reliable and returned more quickly.

Prescription Charges and Exemptions
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
From 1 April 2012, the charges are:
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. The charge for a single prescription item is £7.40, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.

In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;

You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.
Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:
These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.
Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.

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 appointment as early as possible - at least 4 - 6 weeks before you travel. These vaccines may 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 vaccination is not included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.
It is important to take care whilst travelling. Please take a look at our travel advice leaflet on the link below.
