Due to staff shortages we regret we shall be reducing the number of appointments available with our Practice Nurses at both Morland Surgery and Holmwood Health Centre. This will affect our Travel Clinics especially and you may be directed to a travel health clinic elsewhere.
Boots and Superdrug offer this service in their larger stores and other providers are available.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to resume our normal service as soon as possible.

The Doctors recommend routine smears on a regular basis. You will receive a letter when yours is due. Please see the home page for updates on the shortage of cervical screening sample pots

The majority of our work and the services we offer patients are carried out under the terms of our NHS contract. However we do carry out a small amount of private work. We have a scale of charges which is displayed in both our surgeries. You have a right to be aware of the possible charge before agreeing to a private service, so please ask us the fee that will be due. We do usually ask for payment before the work is undertaken. The range of private work is varied but this will include letters and certificates if these are outside of the scope of NHS care. Please note that private work does not take preference over NHS services.
A range of private medical examinations are undertaken by appointment, for example HGV Licence Examinations. Please tell the receptionist when making an appointment so that adequate time is allowed.
Please ask for details of the private fee that will be due.
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.
