There are also fees payable for letters or certificates you may ask your GP to write on your behalf – such as fitness to travel, housing benefit support, holiday cancellation forms etc. These letters are not included in the NHS work your GP carries out for you and therefore their time is chargeable.
Dr Thapar is skilled in performing a number of procedures, avoiding joining lengthy hospital waiting lists and generally more convenient for you. Procedures are usually carried out once a month during a minor surgery clinic. These are for non-urgent cases only.
Childrens’ Immunisation Programme
Each vaccination is given as a single injection into the muscle of the thigh or upper arm. Immunisation booklets explaining the schedule of injections are available from reception or your child’s health visitor.

The health centre administrators can help you with the following services that take place at the health centre.
Telephone: 01784 883666
- Speech therapy
- Dental for patients with special needs

The practice maintains close links with the local department, enabling prompt referral and joint assessment of needs when necessary. Family members and neighbours can also make referrals if they have any concerns.
A simple memory test is now available with our practice nurses. This simple test will identify if you have any problems which may require further testing.
The test is approximately 20 minutes long and will involve you answering a series of questions. It will also involve getting a family member or friend to complete a simple questionnaire, if this is a problem please let the nurse know. You can bring your friend or family member along to the memory review if you wish to do so.
If the nurse identifies any issues you will be offered a blood test and further referral if appropriate.
Please feel free to contact the practice nurses if you have any further questions.
