We are able to offer appointments for immediate assessment and treatment of minor injuries. The types of injuries we are able to treat include:
Our Respiratory nurses provide routine monitoring of patients with Asthma or COPD and follow up patients after an exacerbation (flare up) of Asthma/COPD to try to prevent another exacerbation. We encourage patients with these conditions to be seen for a review at least once a year. We aim to work with you to find the most appropriate treatment leading to optimum symptom control. We also provide help, support and education for patients and families of those with respiratory conditions. There is good evidence that regular attendance at clinic and monitoring/education of patients regarding their condition reduces the risk of emergency admission to hospital.
To determine what vaccinations you may require and to obtain the relevant information for your travel we request that you visit the following website (the library has facilities for accessing the internet should you not have access at home):

You will need to complete a travel questionnaire, which you can pick up from reception or print here. This form then needs returning to the surgery. Once the nurse has checked the details to ensure that the vaccinations are available you will be contacted to arrange an appointment at the surgery. Please note that all travel consultations should be booked 6-8 weeks prior to your date of travel to ensure optimum cover is achieved.
Minor surgical procedures can be carried out at the Chesterfield Drive Surgery. The following conditions may be suitable for minor surgery:
