Appointment times with the nurses vary. Please enquire at reception. It is helpful if we know the reason for the appointment so that the appropriate amount of time can be allocated.
The Practice Nurse is available for blood tests, blood pressure checks, Diabetic, Asthma & Coronary Heart Disease reviews, cervical smear tests, ear syringing, child vaccinations, dressings & travel advice.
If you are not able to get to the surgery, District Nurses will carry out treatment within your own home environment.
They are involved in ante-natal and post-natal care, offering support and education, helping mothers and their partners prepare for parenthood.
Ante-natal clinics are held every Monday afternoon between 2.00pm and 4.00pm at both our surgery sites. Please note that the first ante-natal appointment attendance requires a time longer than an average consultation, so a special appointment must be made.
Post-natal checks are carried out by one of our female doctors at the end of morning surgery, by appointment.
Counselling is available on Tuesday mornings and Tuesday afternoons. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or emotional difficulties in response to loss, relationships, work, health or other life events, your doctor can refer you.
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 8 weeks before you travel. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
You will be asked to complete a travel questionnaire before you attend your appointment. Please print and complete this form via the following link:-
Travel Risk Assessment Form
If there is less than 8 weeks before your date of departure, you will be asked to attend a Private Travel Clinic for your vaccinations and travel health advice.
Please note that we no longer offer travel health appointments at our branch site surgery, Ecclesall Medical Centre. Patients registered at this site will be offered an appointment at our main site Upperthorpe Medical Centre.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
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 at our reception or on the HMRC website.
For any illness lasting longer than seven days you will need to see the doctor for him/her to issue a sickness certificate (F.med3) and for any subsequent renewal of the certificate. If your employer insists on a sickness certificate for 7 days or less a charge will be levied.
