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 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. Further information is also available on all aspects of sex, relationships and contraception here.
We can of course help with a wide range of common health problems that you may experience.
Whatever your worried about –don’t put it off, book to discuss it now with one of our Drs or nurse Practitioner.

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.

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 a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
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. Please ask to speak to Lynn our Medical Reports Administrator, who will advise you on cost and appointments.
We accept cash (please bring the correct amount wherever possible) and cheques only. Receipts can be given on request.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
