Cancer of the testicles is rare but still the most common cancer in men aged between 15 and 45. A simple, regular self-check could help you detect early signs of the disease and there are many websites that explain how this is done. If you do notice changes, it’s important to see your GP right away.
This check is part of a new national scheme to help prevent the onset of stroke, heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease. Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74 who has not been diagnosed with the conditions above will be invited for a check once every five years. If you are outside the age range and concerned about your health, you should contact your GP. For more information visit www.nhs.uk/nhshealthcheck or call the NHS Health Check helpline on 0845 850 9850.
This scheme offers advice and/or treatment for a wide range of conditions
The scheme means that you don’t need to wait for an appointment to see your doctor about any of the problems listed above. You can instead choose to go to see your pharmacist who can give advice and treatment.
If you don’t pay for your prescriptions your pharmacist will be able to supply any medicines you might need free of charge.
You will need to sign the back of the Pharmacist’s prescription form and show proof of your exemption like you do on a doctor’s prescription.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Please telephone between 12 noon - 12.30 for the results of any tests you have undergone. The telephone is not so busy at this time and the reception staff are more able to assist. The receptionist cannot discuss results but will simply pass on a message from the doctor as to whether the test is normal or if your doctor needs to discuss it with you.
It can take up to five days for us to receive your blood test result; X-Ray results take between 7-10 days, although some other tests may take longer.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect 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 information or they are not capable of understanding the results.
