Cryotherapy (Wart Clinics)
These are performed in normal surgery clinics. Please ask our reception team to make you a routine appointment in one of our clinics.
Minor surgical procedures are carried out by appointment and the Doctors will be happy to advise you on this.
Travel Immunisation and Vaccination
Our Practice Nurses give advice on travel vaccines and travel health and in order to assist them we ask that you complete our 'Travel Questionnaire' as soon as your holiday is booked. The Practice Nurse will then carry out a risk assessment for the areas to be visited. You will be asked to ring the surgery 3-4 days after completing the questionnaire and advised when to commence any necessary treatment.
In this age of global travel when more and more people have the opportunity to visit far off shores, it is very important to protect yourself against diseases liable to be contracted abroad. As a preventative measure, we can offer our patients all the relevant vaccines. Our practice nurses are very experienced in the field of travel vaccinations and anti-malaria medication. However, for anti-mararials a private prescription will be issued as these are not available on the NHS.
We are also a registered Yellow Fever Centre. This is not an NHS service so please enquire about cost before booking your appointment. We are also able to offer this service to non-patients.
For more information, call 01924 822273.
We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre for both registered and non-registered patients. There is a charge for this service. Please ask reception staff for details.

Please contact the reception staff from August onwards for details of the vaccination and to make an appointment.
If you are housebound a home visit can be arranged; please ring reception and they will be happy to help.
The Doctors are happy to carry out medicals, eg insurance and driving licence, by appointment. Please telephone the surgery to book an appointment, and ask reception for the charges for these services.
If you look after a relative, friend or child who, because of illness, disability or the effects of old age, is unable to manage without your help, you are a Carer. This surgery is in close contact with Carers Leeds. By completing a yellow card obtained at reception, your status as a Carer will be added to your clinical details and upon request we can refer you to Carers Leeds services.
If you are aged 16 - 75 you may be entitled to a free health check every three years. Patients aged 75+ are entitled to a health check every year. Please make an appropriate appointment with our Health Care Assistant.
