We provide a post-operative care service for registered and temporarily registered patients who need to have sutures removed and general wound care following a hospital day case or inpatient procedure
Appointments for this clinics can only be made at the request of the doctor or nurse. You will usually be asked to report to the receptionist and advice her that you have been asked to make the relevant appointment. An appointment date and time will then be sent to you. If the given appointment is inconvenient for you then please phone the surgery and rearrange it.
An appointment with the surgery counsellor can only be made at the request of the doctor or nurse. A written referral, by the doctor or nurse, has to be made to the counsellor who will then acknowledge receipt of the referral and subsequently send you an appointment.
A Midwife is a nurse who is trained to care for expectant mothers and their new born babies. Generally a Midwife will look after a pregnant woman from the time they have been booked for their ante-natal care until 10 days after the birth of the baby. They will provide most of the care during your pregnancy.
Our ante-natal clinics are run on a Monday & Wednesday.
Health visitors are nurses who have had additional training to care for the family. Traditionally they have looked after the needs of mothers from 10 days after the birth, a point at which the Midwife relinquishes care. They are also the first port of call if you have any concerns about your child. Again, traditionally, they will remain involved in the care of your child until he/she is 5 years old. There is a drop in session at Castlecombe Children & Family Centre Mottingham Thurs am 9.30-11.30 and Cotmandene Children & Family Centre Friday am 9.30-11.30
Health Visitors also care for the needs of Elderly people and are always willing to attend an elderly person by appointment to discuss any special needs that they may have.Contact the Health Visitors on: 020 8857 6028.
If the doctor or nurse has asked you to have a blood test then you are required to attend one of the local phlebotomy services. We regret that the surgery can not make appointment for patients to have their blood taken at the surgery. We do sometimes make exceptions for the elderly.
Please call between 2.30pm and 4.30pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
When you require a blood test as part of your treatment you will be referred to the phlebotomy clinic for the sample to be taken.
You must have no food or drink with the exception of plain water for a minimum of 14 hours prior to the time the sample is taken
Testing service is provided at the following locations:
A doctor can issue a fit note for absence from work due to sickness once the patient has been absent for 7 working days. The first 7-days of absence may be certificated by yourself by completing a "Self Certification" form available from the Surgery or your employers.
Occasionally employers insist on a medical certificate issued by a doctor, even if 7 working days have not elapsed. In these circumstances a private certificate can be issued, however an administrative charge will be applied, currently the charge is £16.00
We are often asked to write certificates or produce statements to support our patients in areas others than employment. Examples are: fitness to travel, fitness to attend a gym, fitness to fly when pregnant, use of a trolley on a golf course, fitness to perform on stage, to take medical factors into consideration for examinations, help with transfer at airports and stations ..... We are usually happy to do such a certificate and often without having to see you. However on some occasions we may ask you to make an appointment with you doctor.
There is a charge for writing such certificates.
