NHS Choices Conditions and Treatments

See the NHS Choices Conditions and Treatments browser for an in-depth description of many common health issues.


Childrens Health

There is a good guide on the NHS website which describes various conditions affecting children.  There is advice on how to diagnose them, how to treat them and if further advice should be consulted.

When Should I Worry?

Having an ill child can be a very scary experience for parents. If you understand more about the illness it can help you to feel more in control. This booklet is for parents (and older children) and deals with common infections in children who are normally healthy.

Fevers

Most symptoms of a fever in young children can be managed at home with infant paracetamol. If the fever is very high, they may have an infection that needs treating with antibiotics.  

 


Head Lice

Head lice are insects that live on the scalp and neck. They may make your head feel itchy. Although head lice may be embarrassing and sometimes uncomfortable, they don't usually cause illness. However, they won't clear up on their own and you need to treat them promptly


Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds (also known as epistaxis) are fairly common, especially in children, and can generally be easily treated.

Noticeboard

Annual Flu Vaccination

We will be holding Saturday morning Flu Clinics on:

27th September
11th & 25th October
8th November

Appointments are already available to book; those born before 31 March 1950 or below that age with one of the conditions which place them at greater risk are encouraged to make arrangements to be vaccinated as soon as possible.

Children aged 2, 3 and 4 on 1st September are also eligible for a free vaccination. Further details on clinics will be made available shortly.

New Prescription Service

From mid-October prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. This means you will not always have to collect a paper prescription. We will assume no change to your nominated pharmacy unless you info rm us otherwise.


Use of Your Medical Records - Care Data

Please note that the upload of medical records to a central database has been postponed by NHS England to allow better communication on the matter.  No action is expected before Autumn 2014.


If you feel you need urgent medical attention when we are closed but don't feel it's life threatening then the number to ring is 111 .

Online Appointment Booking

You can now book appointments online via this website. Either click on the "request an appointment" link on the homepage and register or ask for more details from the practice manager.

 

Minor Illness

It may not always be necessary to see the doctor and we have a nurse practitioner who can deal with a range of more minor illnesses and issue prescriptions. Please ask the receptionist for details.

Are you a Carer?

  A carer is someone who, unpaid, looks after or supports someone else who needs help with their day-to-day life because of their age, a long-term, disability, mental health problems or substance misuse. Carers may help with such tasks as getting up and going to bed, washing, dressing, using the toilet, shopping, cleaning, laundry and making meals .   Carers may be family members, including children and young people,who live with the person they care for, or family, friends or neighbours who live elsewhere.

If you think you are a carer then please mention this when you next visit the doctor or nurse. We will highlight this on your record and try to help where we can with keeping you well.
