CQC Inspection report Jan 2015
** Passport counter signatures **
Due to a change in the government guidelines our G.P's will no longer be able to sign patient passport applications as they need to have known you personally for two years. The passport office brought this change into effect 18 months ago but is now enforcing this change and is rejecting applications that have been signed by G.P's
We are very sorry that we can no longer provide this service for our patients. Please refer to the Direct Gov website for more information about who can sign your application.
The Practice runs a minor ailment scheme that gives patients the option to consult an approved Pharmacist, for advice and treatment of minor ailments. In order to access the service please speak to a receptionist who will advise you further.
The service is available to all patients. It is free to those who are exempt from prescription charges. However, if you normally pay for your prescription you will continue to do so. If the pharmacist thinks you need to see a doctor he will advise you accordingly.
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.

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.
The following charges apply to travel vaccinations given at this practice:
£30.00 per dose.
(Course three doses)
Charges correct from 1 January 2017
Travel vaccinations should be paid for on the day of the appointment by cash only.

Frequently asked questions:
Why do I need a blood test?Blood tests are often needed for your doctor to work out what is causing your symptoms. They may also be needed to check that treatment you are on is being effective. There are a very large number of things that can be tested from a blood sample and the ones your doctor is testing for will be written on the form you were given. If you want to know more about the tests, you can visit Lab Tests Online at www.labtestsonline.org.uk where you will find a wide range of information.
Do I need an appointment for my blood test? At North Middlesex University Hospital we now have an appointment system for adult blood tests (people who are aged 16 or over) . Please see the details above.
The Laurels Healthy Living Centre operates an open access (walk-in) policy. For adult patients who are not fasting, the afternoon or early evening is the best time to come as it is usually least busy then and you may be seen in as little as 10 minutes. Monday mornings are usually the busiest times, so please avoid these if possible.
