Minor Surgery is performed in the practice by all GPs. Procedures performed may include treatment of ingrowing toenails and removal of moles and small lumps.
Assessment by your GP will be needed before any procedure will be undertaken. You will then need to make a double appointment with both the GP and Nurse and sign a consent form at the time of the procedure.
We are now able to offer a Nurse-led service for emergency treatment of injuries that are not treatable with home first aid kits, such as minor cuts, bruises, burns, sprains and other similar minor injuries. Anyone can access these services including people who are registered with a GP elsewhere.
The service is available during our normal opening hours and although no appointment is necessary, we would encourage patients to phone the surgery before attending.
The service is provided, so that people with minor injuries do not need to attend hospital accident and emergency departments during our opening times.
Our Healthcare Assistants offer ECGs, Blood Pressure Checks and Audiograms.
Please note these are private healthcare providers and a fee will be charged, for details of the charges please contact the relevant provider.

Local hearing care specialists, The Hearing Care Centre, have teamed up with Wickham Market Medical Practice to offer a private clinic dedicated to earwax removal. The Hearing Care Centre's Ear Care Practitioner, Sarah Nichols, will be holding a monthly clinic in Wickham Market in the third Monday of every month (subject to change).
The Hearing Care Centre offers a relaxed atmosphere, allowing sufficient time with all their patients to remove wax in a safe and gentle way. They also offer an on-screen video image of the wax in the ear and the cleared ear after treatment.
During this procedure, the patient sits in a chair and the ear is rinsed with warm water from an electronic irrigator. The wax and water is collected in a basin or cup-shaped device which the patient holds under their ear.
The cost of this private service is £40 for one ear or £60 for both, with appointments lasting around 30 minutes.
To book an appointment please call The Hearing Care Centre on 01473 230330 or visit www.hearingcarecentre.co.uk/waxremoval for more details.
At the surgery, we offer travel immunisations for people travelling abroad. Some of these are chargeable. Please note these are normal charges and are non-profit making.
It is important to make your travel appointment as soon as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive your 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.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
-First of all, please book a 20 minute appointment with the practice nurse. You MUST fill out a risk assessment form prior to this appointment which you can either print from the link below or collect from reception.-Please bring along the risk assessment to your appointment where the nurse will tick & calculate the total cost for the vaccinations. You will then be asked to pay this amount at reception and given a receipt.-The vaccines that you need will be ordered and once they are in stock, the nurse will contact you to book the appointment for you vaccinations.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
As stated, there are charges for some travel vaccinations (these are standard charges). Please see the price list attached to the Risk Assessment. On your intial visit to our Practice Nurse, she will help you by giving you a cost of your vaccinations.
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.
Payment for Vaccinations MUST be made prior to vaccines being ordered.
For vaccines that need to be specially ordered, these will need to be paid for even if you cancel your appointment.
Please ensure you obtain a receipt on payment.

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
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.

We are able to issue NHS patients with hearing aid batteries upon production of a brown record book (supplied by the hospital). Please ask at Reception for more details.
From the beginning of September 2015, we no longer offer ear syringing appointments during normal clinics.
1 clinic a month has been set up for patients to have their ears syringed specifically & no other appointments will be booked outside of these clinics. Patients will also need to be assessed by the Practice Nurse prior to having their ears syringed.
Due to our limited capacity, we are advising patients to 'self-help' before calling up for a pre-assessment. Please feel free to read our 'self-help' leaflet for more information.
