Annual Health Review

Happy Birthday!

Don’t forget to book your annual review!

Covid-19 has shown us how much we need to streamline and prioritise our resources. That is why we are implementing a birth-month recall system for most long-term conditions and annual reviews.

As of August 2022, we plan to implement the birth-month recall system. Patients with one or more long-term conditions will receive an invitation to book an appointment just before their birthday month.

To bring all patients in line with their birth month, it may mean that you are asked to attend, even if you have had a review within the last 12 months. We still need you to attend.

The Goal

As a result, patients will have to attend fewer appointments as multiple tests and checks can be performed at the same time.

What are long term conditions?

The practice already invites certain groups of patients in for an annual review of their conditions.

This includes patients who have:

  • Respiratory conditions
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Epilepsy

What we do
As your GP surgery we play a significant role in managing your long-term condition. We believe in working with you and specialists in the community to provide holistic, personal, and high-quality care.

Long term conditions or chronic diseases are conditions for which there is currently no cure, and that are managed with drugs and other treatments.

All patients with a long-term condition should have an annual review (or ‘health MOT’). This could involve one single appointment or multiple appointments depending on which long term condition(s) you have. If a blood test or blood pressure check is required, you will be booked with a Health Care Assistant, if further checks are needed, these will be booked with either a nurse/GP/Advanced Nurse practitioner depending on the type of consultation you need.

Your medical history and medications will be reviewed at your appointment and together we will consider how we may improve your health/management of your long term condition. This may include health advice, medication changes or referrals to a community service.

Antenatal Clinics

This is the care you receive while you’re pregnant to make sure you and your baby are as well as possible. The midwife doctor providing your antenatal care will check the health of you and your baby, give you useful information to help you have a healthy pregnancy, including advice about healthy eating and exercise.

Midwife Clinics are held on Wednesday Mornings by Appointment only.

Later checks are carried out by the health visitors and school nurses.

These assessments / appointments are arranged between your health visitor and doctor.

Childhood Vaccinations

NHS Cambridgeshire & Peterborough has created a Guide to Childhood Illnesses for parents and carers across the area.

This guide covers everything parents and carers need to know about important subjects such as vaccinations, common ailments and issues, and where to go for help if your child has a medical issue.

Guide to Childhood Illnesses

We will call you to book your child’s immunisations when they are due. We work on information provide by Child Health please contact us if you don’t hear from us.

If You Choose Not to Vaccinate

Childhood Immunisations

All children under five years of age are encouraged to have the recommended immunisations.

Appointments for clinics are held weekly at each surgery and all appointments are sent directly to the parents/guardian from the Health Authority.

For more information on Vaccinations click the link below.

Health Visitor

A health visitor will usually visit you at home for the first time around 10 days after your baby is born. Until then you’ll be cared for by local midwives.

A health visitor is a qualified nurse or midwife who has had extra training. They’re there to help you, your family and your new baby stay healthy.

Your health visitor can visit you at home, or you can see them at your child health clinic, GP surgery or health centre, depending on where they’re based.

Talk to your health visitor if you’re struggling with your mental health. They can give you advice and suggest where to find help. Read more about feeling depressed after childbirth.

They may also be able to put you in touch with groups where you can meet other parents.

Extra Services

Most of our doctors and practice nurses have special interests or skills, allowing us to offer extra services such as Rheumatology (including joint injections), ENT, women’s health and respiratory medicine.

If you think you would benefit from one of these services please discuss it with the Receptionist who will give you the appropriate appointment.

Non-NHS Services

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges.

Examples include the following:

  • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
  • Fit to Fly Letters
  • DVLA reports
  • Subject Access Requests
  • To Whom in May Concern Letters

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. Private work does not take precedence over our routine practice work and therefore will be completed when time allows. Please allow at least four weeks when asking for any private work to be completed.

Please note all ‘To Whom it May Concern Letters’ also attract a fee. These should always be requested from reception and not during a consultation with the Doctor.

Payment in advance is required.  This can be by either bank transfer, cash or cheque.  Unfortunately, we do not currently accept debit/credit cards.

Foreign Travel

We will be happy to give advice on all medical aspects of foreign travel, including vaccinations.

Please ask to see the practice nurse in good time – at least eight weeks before travel. If you fill in the travel questionnaire below with details of your travels and bring it to your appointment, it will help us give you the best advice.

Travel Vaccinations

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:

Europe Europe & RussiaNorth America North America
Central America Central AmericaSouth America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
Caribbean CaribbeanAfrica Africa
Middle East Middle EastCentral Asia Central Asia
East Asia East AsiaAustralasia  Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make arrangements  as early as possible – at least 8 weeks before you travel.  A travel form needs to be completed so that the practice nurse can review your arrangements and plan what is required.

Sometimes these vaccines have to be ordered as they are not necessarily stock vaccines. Often a second appointment is required and this 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 will incur a charge to the patient. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Travel Appointments in the Surgery

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the form on the link below and bring it to the surgery as soon as you book your holiday.

A member of our travel team will review the form and plan what vaccinations you may require and offer general travel advice.
