We are now making appointments for flu vaccinations for October. If you are aged 65 or over or you have a chronic disease please ask at reception.
Children who are aged 2,3,or 4 years as at 1st September are also encouraged to have a flu vaccination (nasal drops) - please ask at Reception
We are also vaccinating for rotavirus for new babies. Please contact the surgery for an appointment.
Free NHS Health Checks now available for those over 40 to 74. Please view clinics & services for further information.
In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a comprehensive range of clinics and healthcare services:
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 - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second 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.

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)
From July 1 2013 a new vaccine against rotavirus infection, a common cause of diarrhoea and sickness, will be offered to all babies as part of the NHS childhood vaccination programme. The rotavirus vaccine will be given to babies at two months of age and again at three months alongside their other routine childhood vaccinations. The vaccine, called Rotarix, is given as a liquid from a dropper straight into the baby’s mouth for them to swallow. Rotavirus is a highly infectious stomach bug that typically strikes babies and young children, causing an unpleasant bout of diarrhoea, sometimes with vomiting, tummy ache and fever. Most children recover at home within a few days, but nearly one in five will need to see their doctor, and one in 10 of these end up in hospital as a result of complications such as extreme dehydration. A very small number of children die from rotavirus infection each year. For more information please look at the Department of Health Website.
We are now offering a Free NHS Health Check at the surgery. If you're aged between 40 and 74 and haven't already been diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, or had a stroke, you can arrange your health check by making an appointment at the surgery with one of our practice nurses.
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.
We are part of the Leeds Care Record project. From October 16th 2013 we were one of the three pilot practices for this project. Leeds Care Record is now in live use. We will share key information from your record with other people providing direct care for you, for example Leeds accident & emergency department, outpatient clinics, district nurses and social care. We already share information of this sort, but mainly on paper or electronicially at the time of making a referral. By the time you are next seen in clinic this information could be out of date, for example if you've changed your medication. The Leeds Care Record will mean that those people caring for you will have up to date information. Protecting your confidential information is important to us and we are working with the others involved in this project to ensure that. Please read on for more information:
At the moment, every health and social care organisation that you use has a different set of patient records for you. These records may duplicate information or one record might hold information about your treatment, care and support that another one doesn’t.
What kind of information will be shared?In Leeds, we have developed a virtual system called the Leeds Care Record. If you live in Leeds you will have a Leeds Care Record created for you. It will be held on a secure computer system and will include some key health and social care information about you. The information is taken from other medical records you may have such as your GP record, hospital records or social care records.
The Leeds Care Record will hold certain information about each patient so that whenever you are being treated or cared for by the NHS or adult social care services the people looking after you will have the most up-to-date information:
Address and telephone number – so we have one set of contact details for you.
Problem diagnosis list – to make sure your health or social care professional has a complete record of your care.
Medications – so everyone treating you can see what medicines you’ve been prescribed.
Allergies – to make sure you aren’t prescribed or given any medicines you could have an adverse reaction to.
Test results – to speed up your treatment and care.
Referrals, clinic letters and discharge information – to make sure the people caring for you have all the information they need about other treatment you’re having elsewhere.
GPs and other health and social care professionals will be able to provide much better support if all of the information they need to know about you is available in one place. When information is shared, it means you won’t have to keep repeating the same information to different professionals. It also means your care will be safer because health and social care staff will be able to see information about the medicines you have been prescribed and any allergies you have.
There are benefits for the health and social care system too. By having instant access to the information they need, the people caring for you won’t have to spend time phoning around different organisations. They’ll be able to do their job safely and more quickly, making services more streamlined, cost effective and efficient.
No. Your medical records will still be confidential. They will only be looked at by people who are directly involved in your care. We won’t share your information with anyone who doesn’t need it to provide treatment, care and support to you. Your details will be kept safe and won’t be made public, passed on to a third party who is not directly involved in your care, or used for advertising.
By law, everyone working in, or on behalf of, the NHS and adult social care must respect your privacy and keep all information about you safe.
The Leeds Care Record will be held on a secure, encrypted system at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals. The system keeps a record of everyone who has accessed a patient record, the time and date when they accessed it and the information they were viewing.
The laws on data protection are clear and we take them very seriously. We regularly check to make sure that only people who need to see your patient record are viewing it.
Yes, you can choose not to have a Leeds Care Record. It is your choice but sharing your medical and social care information through a Leeds Care Record will make it easier to provide the best quality care and support for you. If you have any doubts about your records being shared you can talk to your GP in the first instance. If you wish, we can ensure that your GP records are not shared outside the practice. You can also contact the information governance team at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Their telephone number is 0113 20 64102 or you can write to:
