FLU CLINICS NOW AVAILABLE We are aware that you are being asked by Pharmacists to have your flu jab with them and stating it takes the pressure off GP surgeries. We would prefer you to have the vaccination here as it gives our nurses an opportunity to see if there is anything outstanding in your records e.g. blood tests, blood pressure check etc.
If you are aged 65 or over, pregnant, or have a chronic condition (Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, history of splenectomy etc.) you may be eligible for a flu jab. Please contact Hickings Lane Medical Centre to book your flu appointment
Did you know that you can now order repeat prescriptions and book routine GP appointments online? If you would like access to this service please ask at reception or see our online services page for details.
The nursing team provides a comprehensive range of services including:
All nurse and health care assistant clinics are by appointment only which can be booked in person or by telephone.
The midwife gives advice on all aspects of your pregnancy and visits mothers and babies after the baby is born. She sees our antenatal ladies on Tuesday afternoons. During office hours, the midwife can be contacted at the Stapleford Care Centre on 0115 8835000.
You may discuss any of these services with either the doctor or the practice nurses. We provide a range of contraception including contraceptive pills, injection, copper and hormonal coils and the implant procedures. We also have a practice policy dedicated to the request of emergency (after sex) contraception. Please be reassured that all reception staff abide by the NHS code of confidentiality.
The surgery provides minor surgical procedures including cryotherapy, joint injection, excision and aspiration of simple lumps etc. You would need to see the doctors prior to arrangement of any procedure.
If you require a blood test only, our phlebotomist is available Monday to Friday mornings; please use this service to save valuable practice nurse time.
If you would like a chaperone present in a doctor or nurse appointment please let the doctor or nurse know when you are called in.
If you require additional support and feel you may need more time with the clinician, please bring it to the attention of the receptionists.
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 make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel.
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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability. To see a list of Non-NHS Services please click the link below.
We cannot give medical information, including test results to anyone other than the person who had the test (unless we have consent on record). Please do not put pressure on the receptionists to divulge such information.
The only exception to this rule is for young children who are unable to understand their treatment and for patients that are cared for.
