The surgery runs flu vaccination clinics from September until March. Please contact the surgery to make an appointment. It is not just the elderly who should have the flu jab. There are quite a few people who are more “at risk” when they catch flu; click here for more details.
You can choose to tell others about visits to the surgery but we won't. The only reason why we might consider passing on confidential information without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from serious harm. We would always try and discuss this with you first. If you have any worries about confidentiality, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK A MEMBER OF STAFF.
Available services for young people include:
Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection. It affects both men and women — but don't worry it can be easily treated with antibiotics. About 1 in 10 sexually active young people tested have chlamydia, yet most people who have it do not have any signs or symptoms and will not know that they've got it.
But a simple test will show if you have it!
Chlamydia tests are simple and do not require embarrassing examination. Tests are usually taken by yourself, not by a nurse or doctor. For men testing simply involves peeing in a pot.
Once found Chlamydia can be easily treated, usually with a single dose of antibiotic tablets (or liquid).
To arrange Chlamydia screening at Netherfield Medical Centre speak to Eddie (Nurse Practitioner), any of the practice nurses or GPs.
The team of GP's can provide confidential advice and access to a wide range of contraceptives. There are a wide range of options available including pills, patches, injections, implants, coils and condoms.

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 fill out the travel questionnaire as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations and these vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your last 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.
