If your employer requires you to have certain vaccinations, particularly Hepatitis B, for your job, but is unable to provide the vaccinations themselves, we may be able to enter into a contract with your employer to provide this for you. We will need the signed contract and payment before we are able to do the vaccinations. Please ask at reception for details.
We offer a free one-to-one smoking cessation service at the practice, designed to support you to quit smoking. Please ask at reception for details.
We offer all patients aged between 40-74 a free health check every five years.
At the check we will take your family medical history, check basic data such as your height, weight, blood pressure and pulse, offer any advice about smoking and weight loss if appropriate and do a simple blood test to check your cholesterol.
The purpose of the health check is to catch any early signs of cardiovascular disease, so that we can help prevent it.
We will contact patients when they are due to have the test and strongly recommend that all patients take advantage of this free check.
The NHS has agreed a service to help people with complex physical or mental health needs to keep well and avoid unplanned hospital visits, such as in an emergency. Westside Surgery will identify these people and invite them to receive a more tailored, active support from the practice.
Patients will have a named GP who will have overall responsibility for their care and support and a named care co-ordinator, who may be the named GP or another health professional involved in their care.
These new arrangements do not prevent patients making an appointment or seeing any doctor, of choice within the surgery, as normal.
The named GP or named care co-ordinator will work with the patient to develop a personal care plan and review / discuss with them any changes needed. We will also make sure that, whenever the patients has an urgent need to see or speak to a GP or nurse, as soon as possible on the same day one of our GPs or nurses will phone them back to help deal with the problem.
